Crochet for a cause with this adorable and easy coffee cozy! The secret to adding depth and texture to this project, as well as making it go twice as fast, is to double up the yarn! That’s right, if you’ve never crochet with two strands of yarn before, you’re missing out! The double strand method also makes for a nice thick cozy, perfect for those hot cups of tea and coffee. Check out the video below to get a feel for the pattern, and then go ahead and get the free pattern beneath the video. Happy crocheting, friends!
