Crochet Plastic Bags: Plarn Can CozyBy Rachel Choi – 15 Comments
|Call me butterfingers, I almost dropped my can of soda the other day because it was so wet from being chilled in the refrigerator! I never really knew why people used can cozies, but now I know. Here is one that I made for my soda can with plarn (plastic yarn). I’m so proud of how nice and tight the cozy fits on a can. This cozy can also be made with regular yarn if desired, just be sure to do some measuring so that it fits properly.
Also I noticed that this cozy makes a perfect pencil holder!!! The plastic makes it really stiff and less likely to fall over if loaded with pencils or whatever you may decide to put in it!
Finished Size: 3″ (7.5 cm) in diameter, 4″ (10 cm) tall
Note: you may adjust size if desired
Approximately 10 plastic bags made into plarn (plastic yarn)
Crochet hook H (5.00 mm)
Gauge: Round 1 – 5 in pattern is a circle that measures 2 3/4″ (7 cm) in diameter
Crochet Pattern: Can Cozy
Round 1: ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook, place marker: 6 sc
Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around: 12 sc
Round 3: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc) around: 18 sc
Round 4: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc) around: 24 sc
Round 5: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc) around: 30 sc
Note: your circle should be 2 3/4″ (7 cm) in diameter fitting perfectly under your soda can. After round 8, the bottom of your can should fit tightly into the cozy.
Round 6 – 20: sc in each sc around: 30 sc
