Football Can Cozy

Crochet this fast and easy Football Can Cozy.  It makes a fun gift.   You can also choose to your team colors.

Here is an Easy to Crochet Father’s Day gift.   A can cozy.  It works great for soda and beer cans as well as for beer bottles.    I used it using brown and white as a traditional football colors but you could also use your team colors.   I have also made these and embroidered the words  Dad or Initials instead of adding the laces.

This can cozy uses only basic crochet stitches and works up super fast.   It’s also a great way to use up your yarn scraps.  I have also included the link to a free Video Tutorial for visual learners.  You will find the link on the last page of this post.
