Rep R3 and R4: 1 more times.

Edging

These rounds (R) are worked around the entire outside of the cozy.

R1: Ch 1 and turn. Work 1 sl st in the FL of each hdc across (I worked 24). Rotate your cozy to work down the side edge. Work sl sts evenly down the side edge (I worked 9 but if you have a few more, or less this is ok!). Rotate your work to work along the starting ch row. Work 24 sl sts evenly across. Rotate you work to work up the other side of the scarf. Work sl sts evenly up the side edge (whatever number you worked on the first side edge is the number you need to work here. I worked 9 on both sides). Finish off with an invisible join and weave in ends.

Finishing

Now fold your project in half. Overlap the two side edges (the ones you worked 9 sl st on) slightly (I overlapped about 1/2 inch) and stitch them together. I used a whip stitch join. You can take a look at and choose from a few different seaming techniques here:

This what your project looks like so far:

If you want to add 2 decorative buttons – like I did – my buttons are approximately 1-inch in diameter. I hand stitched them with the same color yarn as I used in the project and tied them securely in place before weaving in my ends.

This project should take you less than 30 minutes to make – perfect for last minute gift-giving ideas- or to use up a bit of leftover yarn you have on hand from making either of these to free patterns:

  1. Hi Heather, I have a YouTube Video showing you how to find the eye of the stitch. You can watch it here: Hope this helps, Rhondda

  2. Thank you! I will add the round tutorial to my list 🙂 I’m so new to video and there is so much to remember – thank you for being patient with my out of frame moments – I’m trying to get used to where I need to be in position to the camera but it is so much more difficult than other people make it look lol

    I’m happy the tutorial(s) were still helpful 🙂 All the best, Rhondda
