The Boxed Bead Koozie is something I have wanted to make for quite a few years. The ironic thing is it took me being pregnant with my second baby to finally get around to making it! I knew I wanted to make a koozie of some sort but was not sure of what to stitch or yarn I would use. I originally was set on using Lily Sugar n’ Cream but after many attempts, I was not getting the stitch dimension or stretch I wanted from the 100% cotton yarn. So I went into my stash and pulled out old trusty Bernat Home Dec yarn.

I can’t say enough how much I love Bernat Home Dec yarn! It was one of the first yarns I ever purchased and helped tremendously when I was first learning how to crochet. There’s something about the tubular shape that just makes the stitches look so defined and clean. I know this yarn is impossible to find in person but I have found great deals on it on both eBay and Amazon. The yarn is perfect for absorbing moisture on a hot summer day and the natural stretch makes it easy to get on and off any beverage.

After I decided on what yarn to use, I was still struggling with what stitch. After trying a dozen or so different stitches, I fell in love with the Boxed Bead Stitch. The extended single crochets fenced around each Bead Stitch gives so much definition making the finished koozie very eye-catching. After my first prototype, I decided to test it out at our local park with my favorite matcha latte and immediately started getting compliments from other moms. After that, I knew I had a winner!

My low cost ETSY download also includes bonus printable koozie inserts for gifting or selling. These koozies make really great and easy gifts for family or friends.

Notes

  1. You will check your gauge after completing the base and then measure the diameter of it laying flat.
  2. Finished Size Measurements made with koozie laying flat. 
  3. I recommend using a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each row.
  4. If you would like to change colors: yarn over with new color before completing the stitch before your color change.
  5. The Boxed Bead Stitch is compromised of two special stitches: 
    1. Extended Single Crochet (esc) is how we maintain an even row height in between each bead stitch.
    2. Slanting Cluster aka Bead Stitch (slcl)
