Hi Lovelies! Say a quick hello to the newest pattern in the hcc family, and your drink’s new best friend – The Herringbone Cozy!
If you read my last post, you know I was struggling with my crojo after last fall’s market season. That all changed when I was inspired to create the Herringbone Handle Basket (you can read all about that pattern here!). From there, the stitch pattern I used on the baskets is one I love when worked in the round, and I knew I wanted a cozy pattern that I could use on my slim cans. (Truly seltzers are where it’s at when I’m on the lake, enjoying the sun and a beautiful Michigan summer.) Combine those two things together, and the Herringbone Cozy pattern was created.
Now, I know everyone doesn’t drink all of their drinks out of a slim can, which is why this pattern doesn’t just come in one size! The Herringbone Cozy pattern allows you to create a cozy to meet any of your drink needs! It comes in 4 different sizes; (1) Hot Cup/Cold Tumbler, (2)Slim Can/Glass Bottle, (3) Traditional Short Can, & (4) Traditional Tall Can.

So now that you’ve decided to make a cozy in each color, let’s touch on the details of the cozy patterns. Each cozy pattern is worked completely in the round, with no seaming (yippeee!). In addition, for the can (slim & fat) & bottle sizes, the pattern can be modified to remove the base if you don’t like it. Either way, you’ll create a simple and classic cozy that will become your drink’s newest best friend! Whether it’s summer and you’re cooling off with a slim can seltzer or it’s winter and you have a hot cup of coffee to keep you warm, this cozy pattern is for you.
I place this cozy pattern (and my testers agreed) as an advanced beginner level pattern. The stitches uses are very basic, however, you do need to know how to join a ch in the round without twisting it as well as how to make a magic circle if you wish to make one of the cozies with a base.
With regards to the stitches, used, I give you step by step instructions on how to complete the modification on the half double crochet used in this pattern. I also provided photo tutorials on how to move from creating the base of your cozy to building up the body.
Sound manageable? I think so too! You are more than ready to knock out cozy after cozy so you’re all ready for whatever season that’s in front of you!
Gauge is decently important in each cozy pattern, if only because if you can’t meet gauge, your cozy may not fit the glass, cup, or can for which you’re making said cozy. I do provide gauge in the written pattern in two forms, so you should be solidly set to hit it and outfit all of your drinks!
