There's nothing better than sitting and watching the sunset by the beach while having a delicious cold beer or cider – especially when your crochet cozy is keeping your hands from getting cold and wet.
It's become a weekend tradition around here and every Friday and Saturday, we'll find our group of friends slowly sauntering down to the beach after dinner. We all bring our lawn chairs and cheers our drinks as we watch the sun slowly sink down behind the trees on the opposite side of the lake.
Ahhh, lake life is the best life.
Now if you're going to have a few beverages, why not have crochet cozies around the cans to prevent your hands from getting chilly and damp. My first cozy pattern turned out so well, that soon I was getting requests from all my friends to crochet can cozy's for them too.
This is a really easy crochet project that you can complete in under an hour. You can keep it plain or spruce it up with different colors and stripes if you'd like. You have the power to customize this simple crochet pattern as you see fit.
