A Free Crochet Pattern from Crochet by Ellen
I find so much joy in patterns that can be made and gifted all year round. Whether this be a quick teacher appreciation gift or a birthday gift for a friend, it works up quickly and is guaranteed to get some “oh that’s so cute” and “wow! did you make this?” comments from your family, friends and co-works.
The Wildflower Cozy
• J (6.0 mm) crochet hook
• Yarn needle
• Measuring tape
hdc: half double crochet
ch sp: chain space
sl st: slip stitch

(#): Stitch counts at end of row
Skill level: Beginner
Size: Finished cozy should be approximately 4 inches wide and 3 inches tall.

If your swatch is smaller than this, increase your hook size. If it is larger than this, decrease your hook size.
