Christmas candy cane & wreath Cup-cozy (with pattern) // Totoro phone pocket



This Christmas theme Red and White Candy Cane & Wreath is available to purchase @ my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/listing/150318827/cup-cozy-crochet-christmas-wreath-candy


Here is the pattern for the base around designed by Vicki Blizzard {link}
Because I need a cozy for handled cup, I have to change a little bit from the pattern. Making a space for the handle & seal with a button and button loop. Adding a bottom for it. Also create a different bow.



How to make the bottom of the cozy:

1st round - magic circle
2nd - chain one, make 6 single crochet stitches, join
3rd & 4th - chain one, 12 single crochet stitches, then join
5th & 6th - chain one,  18 single crochet stitches, join
7th - chain one, 34 single crochet stitches, join, cut yarn

* attach the bottom and the base together from inside by single crochet stitches
** then reverse the cozy. You're finished!




Together with the cozy is a Gray Totoro (the Japanese anime) phone pocket that I finished on the same day. This Totoro phonecase is now listed for sale on my Etsy shop @ www.etsy.com/listing/129782910/totoro-phonecase-gray-crochet-phone
