With three kids, Freeze Pops are a summer staple at our house. My girls always want me to wrap it up in a paper towel so their little hands don’t freeze. As a stay-at-home mom I am always on the hunt for ways we can save a little money. Paper towels are expensive people!! I really try to use my dishcloths (crocheted of course) and towels as much as I can. This little freeze pop cozy is the perfect solution for cutting down on my paper towel use. And I can still toss them in the wash if someone gets a little messy.
I have oodles of little scarps of cotton yarn in my stash. This is the perfect quick and easy project to use them up. This freeze pop cozy is made in continuous rounds of single crochets. Very beginner friendly!
- #4/Worsted weight cotton yarn
- 5mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
- Stitch marker
Gauge and Sizing
- After round 2 your circle should measure approx. 1 in. across
- Finished cozy measured laying flat: 1.25 inch wide x 4.75 in tall
- I use US Terminology
- Mc: magic circle
- Sc: single crochet
- Sl st: slip stitch
- St: stitch
- This pattern is worked in continuous rounds.
- My advice is to weave in your ends as you go. It pretty difficult to get to them once your cozy is complete (ask me how I know lol).
Round 1: Make a Mc. 6 sc in ring. Do not join. (6)
Round 2: Place stitch marker in 1st st of round. 2 sc in each st around. Do not join. (12)
Round 3-21: Move stitch marker to 1st st of round. Sc in each st around. Do not join. (12)
On last round sl st to 1st sc and finish off, weave in ends and enjoy a yummy popsicle.
This also works great for frozen Go-Gurts (another staple at my house)!!
This little pattern is great because you can easily customize it to suit your liking… solid colors, stripes, color blocks. Whatever you want. Just join your new color at the end of the desired round!
Are you planning on selling your crochet goodies at craft fairs and markets this summer? These little gems would be a perfect addition to your table.
