With Father’s Day right around the corner, I want to give my dad a gift I know he’ll love – his favorite beer. And while I know the beer will be well appreciated on its own, I want to make my gift to him extra special, so I’ve decided to dress his favorite brand of brew with personalized beer labels.

To top it off, I’ve made my father a couple simple crocheted beer cozies to accompany the rest of his gift. I wasn’t able to find a pattern for this project on the internet, so I created my own. This pattern is quick and simple, and a great project for beginners! You can even experiment by adding or subtracting rows to vary the height, or you can switch colors on new rows to add stripes in any pattern that you’d like:

Beer Cozy Pattern
Worsted weight yarn, size 5.5 (I) hook.

Chain 4. Slip Stitch into 4th chain from hook to form a ring.

Row 1: Chain 2. Make 9 half-double crochets into the ring. Slip Stitch into top of chain to complete the round.

Row 2: Chain 2. Make 2 half-double crochets in each stitch, minus the last stitch. Make one half-double crochet in the last stitch. Slip stitch into top of chain to complete the round. (20 stitches)

Row 3: Chain 1. Make 2 single crochets in each stitch minus the last. Form one single crochet in the last stitch. Slip stitch into top of chain to complete the round. (40 stitches)

Row 4: Chain 2. Make 1 half-double crochet in each stitch, skipping every third stitch. Slip stitch to the top of chain to complete the round. (27 stitches)

Row 5: Chain 2. Make 1 half-double crochet in each stitch, skipping every fourth stitch. Slip stitch into the top of chain to complete the round. (22 stitches)

Row 6: Chain 2. Make 1 half-double crochet in each stitch. Slip stitch into the top of chain to complete the round. (22 stitches)

Row 7-16: Repeat row 6.

I think my dad is going to love his gift! I chose labels and bottle collars in the style of Old Guys. I was even able to use the labels on my blank 4-pack bottle carriers. The whole presentation is really nice, and I can’t wait for him to see it.

    Hi great idea, could these be made in cotton to whisk away condensation or would it not stretch enough?

    Hey Denise. Sure! Cotton should work just fine. The only thing to keep in mind is that you might have to test it out on a bottle while you’re crocheting to make sure your gauge allows room to fit your bottles.
