I’ve seen can cozy/koozie mitts before but many of them didn’t have a bottom to hold the can in or they didn’t use a warm enough stitch to make it worth while. I wanted to create something the would allow your hand to stay a little warmer while also allowing you to use it on both hands and not worry about your can/bottle falling through. This makes the perfect gift for yourself or a loved one this holiday season!
Abbreviations: ch – chain, st – stitch, sts – stitches, sc – single crochet, sl st – slip stitch, WST – waistcoat stitch, PM – Place Marker

Begin by chaining 11 (16 if you want a longer sleeve).
Row 1: Sl st in the 2nd ch from your hook. Sl st in each st across. Ch 1, turn your work.
Row 2-40: Sl st into the back loop only of each st across. Ch 1, turn your work.
Join your last row to your chain row with slip sts. Chain 1, turn your cuff and evenly pick up 28 sts around the side of the cuff (which will now become the top of the mitt). Do not slip st to the first st.
You will work in the round to complete the mitt. Do not sl st to the first st, just continue to work in the round.
Row 1: 2 wst in first sc. wst in each st until you get to the last st. 2 wst in final st of the round.
Row 2: Wst in each st around.
Row 3-4: Repeat Rows 1 and 2.
Row 5-10: Wst in each st around (32 sts).
Splitting the Mitt
Row 1: Chain 10, Wst in the 16th st. Wst in each st around.
Row 2: SC in each ch. Wst in each st around.
Row 3-19: Wst in each st around.
Sl st to the first st of the round, cut your yarn and weave in your end.
Working up the other section for fingers/thumb
Begin by inserting your hook into the last st of the previous round (not the first st of the round) and tie on new yarn as shown below. This method will help to close up the gaps by working into the st that has all been worked into on the opposite side and create more room for your fingers and thumb.
Row 1: Wst in each st until you get to the 16th st where you connected with chain sts from the other tube worked up for your fingers. Wst into each base of the “v” that was worked into the chain sts of the other finger tube created.
Row 2-18: Wst in each st around.
Sl st into the first st of the next round. Cut off a long enough tail to join the tubes together. Make sure when joining your tubes, you don’t stitch all the way through, preventing your fingers to pass freely to the other side if they’re longer than one of the sections you created. Weave in your tail once you have completed your join. To see the method I used for joining my tubes together, watch this video:
Creating the base for the can/bottle
Begin with a magic ring. Ch 1, 6 sc in the magic ring. Tighten it down as much as you can.
Row 1: Working in the round, put two sc in the first sc, PM and complete 2 sc in each st around. (12 sts)
Row 2: *Work 2 wsts in the first sc. wst in the next st. Repeat from the * to the end of the round.
Row 3: *work 2 wsts in the first st. Wst in each of the next 2 sts. Repeat from the * to the end of the round.
Row 4: *Work 2 wsts in the first st. Wst in each of the next 3 sts. Repeat from the * to the end of the round.
Row 5: *Work 2 wsts in the first st. Wst in each of the next 4 sts. Repeat from the * to the end of the round. Sl st to the first st of the round. Cut off your yarn leaving a long enough tail to stitch to the base of your mitt.
Stitch the base to the bottom of the mitt taking care not to stitch all the way through causing it to close up on the finger and thumb space. If you’d like to view how I stitched mine on, you can do so by watching this video:
