Crochet Projects: Cup Cozy and Scarf

March 6, 2011

Lately I’ve been keeping my hands busy with some crochet projects. First up is a scarf I made for myself.

It’s easier to see the color against my off-white coat.

Notes: This is from the Boutique Scarf pattern on Crochet Today’s site. I’m not a fan of wool, so I used Lion Brand Quick & Easy Mohair Look yarn in color 403, Camel Spray (pretty color, bad name!). I bought three skeins and used just a tiny amount more than two. If I would have known I’d have so much yarn left over, I would have made the scarf a little longer.

I also made several cup cozies for myself and for friends. They’re cuter than a cardboard cup sleeve!

I even made a little tag so that people would know what it was.


Notes: I used this pattern as a starting point, using a different color for the stripe in the middle three rows. Then I topped it with a row of bobble stitches (a 4dc bobble stitch, followed by 2 sc, repeated around the top).

By the way, if anyone out there crochets, be sure to check out Crochet Spot. There are great tutorials and free patterns. I don’t remember how I found the site, but I’m glad I did!

  1. I love your scarf — it looks wonderful against your coat! What a practical way to put your crocheting skills to use.


  2. That scarf is just lovely. Great yarn!


  3. That’s a great scarf and the cup cozy is too cute. I recycle my cardboard sleeves forever, but drinking coffee with a pretty cozy would make it more fun.


  4. You are such a great crochet-er. I am just learning but so far I love it.

    The scarf is gorgeous and I love the cup cozy!


  5. How fun! I love that scarf…gorgeous. My grandmother used to crochet, her hands were never idle and I miss seeing her hands moving with the needle and making such magic with it. It’s the simple things, you know? Your scarf is lovely.


  6. Gorgeous Jill! I’m envious of your crocheting skills. I don’t know the first thing about it but something tells me I wouldn’t have the patience.


  7. I love your projects- especially the cup cozy. so cute


  8. I love all of your crochet, but the cup cozies are so cute, they steal my heart.
