Frozen Treat Cozy

We’ve all been there, we’re eating our premium ice cream right out of the pint container and our hands are freezing. Well, look no further than the Frozen Treat Cozy to help you out!

The best part about the Frozen Treat Cozy is that it fits many of the reusable and single use cup you get at local coffee shops too. You’ll be able to see how versatile the cozy can be below.

Springtime Crochet Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crochets By Trista Springtime Crochet Blog Hop! I’m so glad that you’re here with us.

For the month of March 2021, you can look forward to at least one FREE pdf download each day. I’ve gathered over 30 different designers and each of them have so much to offer in the world of crochet.

You can find patterns for almost anything this month; including amigurumi, home decor, and fashion accessories. I’ve gotten a sneak peek of all the designs and you’re in for a treat… they are all FABULOUS! Take a look for yourself.

How It Works

Each day a new designer will be offering their pattern for FREE and for only 24 hours.

I will be adding the featured designer’s links and pattern daily at 7:00 AM EST. The designer is only obligated to offer their pattern for the 24 hours. You will not be able to get the free download on any other day except for their featured day.

For each day there will be a button to click that will bring you to that designer’s site. From there you’ll want to read all the details of their post on how to get the free download. While there, subscribe to their email list, give them a follow on social media accounts, and leave a comment for them.

Then, AFTER you’ve read all the wonderful details of the pattern, look for this button below to grab your FREE pdf download for the day. Please note that not all the designers offer their patterns through Ravelry, some sell patterns through their own websites.

Each day the coupon code will be different, so make sure you’re coming back here to make sure you have the correct one. Codes are usually case sensitive so pay attention to capitalization.

Featured designers will be shared in chronological order. Why have it this way? It is so you can see what some of the other designs were (just as a back-up if you’ve missed any).

I take joy in promoting other designers, I want them to succeed and to reach as many of their goals as I can. I’m a firm believer of community over competition. We all have something different to offer in the world of crochet.

Bring on Spring Blog Hop

Featured in the Bring On Spring Blog Hop hosted by Through The Loop Yarn Craft. From February 1st through March 1st a different designer will be featuring a pattern to help shake off the winter blues and to look forward to warmer weather and brighter days.

The Yarn

The yarn I decided to use was “Lion Brand’s ZZ Twist” in the color way Lilac. About a year ago I was able to score 10 skeins for $1.00 each, normal price is roughly $5.00! For that price, I had to give it a try.

I used the same yarn on my Sizzling Summer Tee, just in a different colorway. This color worked better than the Periwinkle. For some reason when I was making the top, the yarn was acting weird, various knots and the twists were coming undone. It flowed really easily this time, just the way most of us like it.

Supplies

725 yards Lion Brand ZZ-Twist (or comparable worsted weight yarn)
I/5.50 mm Crochet Hook
Scissors
Measuring Tape
Stitch Markers
Blocking materials (optional)

Gauge and Finished Size

Gauge: 14 Stitches x 7 Rows = 4”

Size: 22” Wide x 60” Tall

Stitches Used

Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet
Rs – Right side
SDc – Starting Double Crochet
STr – Starting Treble Crochet
Sk – Skip
St(s) – Stitch(es)
Tr – Treble Crochet
Ws – Wrong side

Stitch Definitions

Starting Double Crochet – (also known as Long Chain Double Crochet or Chainless Starting Double Crochet.) Pull up your loop to the height of your usual Double Crochet. Yarn over, insert into the 1st St, yarn over, pull through the stitch, yarn over, pull through two loops on the hook, yarn over, pull through the remaining two loops on your hook.

Starting Treble Crochet – Worked the same way as the Starting Double Crochet but the height of a Treble Crochet.

Pattern Notes

Pattern is written in American crochet terms.

Ch 3 can be substituted for SDc.

Ch 4 can be substituted for STr.

A stitch count is provided at the end of each row.

Availability

The pattern is available to purchase on Ravelry, Etsy, and Ribblr.
