Espresso Chip Coffee Cozy – Free Crochet Pattern

Coffee might just be my kryptonite. Anyone else have that problem? So, I created the Espresso Chip Coffee Cozy. It’s the latest pattern in my Ice Cream Social Collection.

It’ll keep your coffee warm and your hands from getting too hot. And it’s a great pattern for when you need a great last minute gift!

What’s the Ice Cream Social Collection you ask?

When I named my Neapolitan Dreams baby blanket I thought, hmmm . . . . . There should be a whole collection of patterns named after ice cream flavors! Add that to the fact that the whole quarantining life has me missing people and well, the Ice Cream Social Collection was born.

The links to the Ice Cream Social Collection are at the bottom of this post.
