St. Paddy’s Day Crochet Can Cozy Pattern Details

Skill Level

Easy

Size

Finished St. Patrick’s Day Can Cozy sizing using the yarn listed below and a H/8 (5.00mm) hook creates a can cozy that fits a 12 fl. oz / 355ml beer, pop or soda can. Please check your can’s measurements before starting.

  • Finished Bottom of Can Cozy: 2.75” without brim & 4″ with brim
  • Finished Height of Can Cozy: 4″
  • Finished Width Around Can Cozy: 9.5″ without a can & 10″ when holding a can

Gauge

  • 4″ x 4″ swatch worked flat (turning after each row) = 14 sc and 16 rows.
  • 4″ x 4″ worked in the round (not turning) = 12 sc and 16 rows.

Materials

Yarn: Any size 4 (medium) yarn.

I used Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarn, Solid. This yarn is size 4 (medium) and 100% acrylic. The size is 4.5 oz / 127.5 g. A skein is 285 yd./260m and you only need less than a quarter skein in total. 

I used the color “Kelly Green” for the main part of the can cozy; the color “Black” for the hat belt; and the color “Sunny Day” for the hat belt buckle.

Crochet Hook Size: H/8 (5.00mm)

Other: Yarn Needle, Scissors

Abbreviations

st = stitch
sts = stitches
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet

Crochet Can Cozy Pattern Notes:

  • This St. Patrick’s Day Can Cozy is made from the bottom up.
  • It is worked in the round. Do not turn your work at the end of each round (with the exception of Row 5, which is explained in the written instructions).
  • Ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  • Always start in the same stitch as the chain.
  • If you need help creating a magic ring/circle, Crochet365KnitToo has a great step by step photo tutorial here.

St. Patrick’s Day Can Cozy Pattern Instructions

Bottom of Crochet Can Cozy

With a H/8 (5.00mm) hook and green colored yarn, create a magic ring/circle.

Round 1: sc 11 times into magic ring/circle. Pull tight. Join with a sl st into 1st sc. Do not turn. (11 sc)

Round 2: ch 1. 2 sc into first st (the same st where you joined), 1 sc into next st. *2 sc into next st, 1 sc into next st* repeat until there is one st left. 2 sc into last st. (17 sc). Join with a sl st into 1st sc. Do not turn.

Round 3: ch 1. 2 sc into first st (the same st where you joined), sc into next 2 sts. Repeat: *2 sc into st, sc into next 2 sts* around until there are 2 stitches left. 2 sc into next. 1 sc into last st. (23 sc). Join with a sl st into 1st sc. Do not turn.

Round 4: ch 1. 2 sc into first st (the same st where you joined), sc into next 3 sts. Repeat: *2 sc into st, sc into next 3 sts* around until there are three stitches left. 2sc into next st, sc into next 2 sts (29 sc). Join with a sl st.

Measure your work. The bottom of the can cozy should measure approx 2.75” (which is the size of a bottom of a can). If your work is smaller or larger, I recommend starting again with a smaller or bigger size hook.

St. Patrick's Day Crochet Can Cozy Pattern

Side of Can Cozy

Round 5: ch 1 and turn (you’ll be crocheting in the opposite direction and your first st will be into the last st you made, which is attached to the ch 1 st).

In back loops only (which are the ones furthest away from you), sc into same st as ch 1. sc in the back loops only of each st around (29 sc). sl st into both loops of 1st sc to join. Do not turn.

Note: From Row 6 on, work in both loops. And do not turn your work after each round.

Round 6: ch 1. sc in each st around (29 sc). sl st into 1st sc to join.

Can Cozy Hat Belt

Round 7: change color: attach black colored yarn with a sl st.

You can leave the green yarn attached (as long as it’s in the inside of your work) and pick it back up again after the belt is completed.

Do not ch. sc in each st around (29 sc). sl st into 1st sc to join.

Rounds 8 & 9: Still with black yarn, sc in each st around (29 sc). sl st into 1st sc to join.

Side of Can Cozy (Continued)

Round 10: Change color: pick up and attach green yarn with a sl st. Fasten off black yarn and leave a tail to weave in loose ends.

With green yarn, do not ch. sc in each st around (29 sc). sl st into 1st sc to join.

I recommend weaving in your three loose ends after Round 10 is completed (the two black ends and the starting green end – not the strand you are currently working with).

Rounds 11 – 13: ch 1. sc in each st around (29 sc). sl st into 1st sc to join.

I recommend making and attaching your hat belt buckle after Round 13 as it is easier to sew on when the sides of the can cozy aren’t too high.

Rounds 14 – 20: ch 1. sc in each st around (29 sc). sl st into 1st sc to join.

Round 21: ch 1. sl st into 1st st. sl st again into same st (2 sl sts into 1st st). 2 sl sts into each st around (58 sl sts). sl st into 1st sl st to join.

Fasten off and weave in loose ends.

St. Patrick's Day Crochet Can Cozy Pattern

Can Cozy Hat Brim

At the very bottom of the sides of can cozy, there are loops sticking out at the edge of the bottom. These are called the “bottom loops.”

With the bottom of the can cozy facing away from you, attach green yarn in the bottom loop, next to where the bottom round was joined with a sl st, with the sl st from the bottom round directly to the right of where of you are attaching your yarn.

Work the instructions below for the brim from right to left.

Brim Instructions

Hat Brim Instructions: With your green yarn attached to the bottom loop, to the left of the bottom round’s sl st, ch 2. In the same st, dc. dc in next st. 2 dc in next st. Repeat *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* around. (Total sts: 41 dc sts and the ch 2 that began the round). There will be a slight gap between the last 2 dc and the starting ch 2 from the bottom’s sl st. Make 2 dc into that sl st to close the gap. Sl st into top of the 1st dc to join.

Fasten off and weave in loose ends.

Belt Buckle

With golden yellow colored yarn, ch 16.

The rest of the belt buckle is made in one continuous row.

Where to crochet in the chain

1st Rectangle Side (short): In 2nd ch from hook, sc into back ridge loop. In next ch, sc into back ridge loop. In next ch, sc x 3 into same back ridge loop.

2nd Rectangle Side (long): sc into next 4 back ridge loops. In next ch, sc x 3 into same back ridge loop.

3rd Rectangle Side (short): sc into next 2 back ridge loops. In next ch, sc x 3 into same back ridge loop.

4th Rectangle Side (long): sc into next 4 back ridge loops. sl st into 1st sc to join.

Fasten off leaving a 12″ tail. Weave in the first end to belt buckle.

Using a yarn needle, attach belt buckle to can cozy on the front center of can cozy with the rows of black in the middle.
