Baaa! It’s the Sheep Coffee Cup Cozy!
Released today, this coffee cup cozy is the latest in my Farm Animal cup cozies line. The textured stitches are so squishy and soft, you’ll feel like you’re holding on to a real sheep! (Okay, maybe not, but we can’t pretend!)
With spring right around the corner, the sheep cozy is a perfect project for anyone looking to make Easter gifts! What says ‘springtime’ better than a brand new baby lamb?
Why buy from The Pointed Hat?
As always, my patterns are tested by real crocheters just like you! My testers look for errors and clarity. They make sure that I have thoroughly explained my pattern techniques and work closely with me to ensure that my patterns consistently result in great finished products!
Not only that, but I support fellow small business owners just like me. If you want to make and sell your physical products that you created with my pattern – go right ahead! All I ask for is that you tag me as the pattern creator when listing your products in an online marketplace. Easy peasy!
Do I have to use the exact yarn you did?
No! In fact, any yarn that’s a medium/4/worsted weight yarn will work. Cotton, bamboo, wool, acrylic – use what you have on hand, or what makes you happy. All you really need to do is check the fit of your cozy on your desired cup. If you find your yarn brand makes the cozy too big, you can go down a hook size. Too small? Go up a hook size. My cozy patterns are so forgiving and versatile!
How much yarn does this pattern use?
This pattern is a perfect scrap buster! It uses LESS than 20yds of yarn total for the entire project! And even though I put safety eyes on my makes, you don’t even need to do that. Feel free to embroider or crochet eyes instead! This has the added bonus of making your cozy safer if you have small children in your home.
It’s worth noting that safety eyes are a choking hazard.
Even though they are called SAFETY eyes, they’re not 100% foolproof. Littles can chew on yarn, stretch the stitches, or even bite the eye and crack it. Any of those things can cause the eye to pull free from the cozy and be ingested. Please, please, please make sure you keep any project with safety eyes in it away from children under 3 years of age!
You can also buy this pattern over at my Etsy Shop, but since Etsy is increasing its seller fees by 30% this April, we’d prefer if you shopped right here from my site!
