My cozy came out much to large. I tried a couple of times, but each time it was huge.

Sounds good. But why can't I print the instructions in larger print.

When you make this you "can" use them for in the car and not leave rings in the cup holders. Which over time is very hard to get out. If making these for the car you can make them to match the interior of the car or do them in a contrasting color, to show off your handy work. If you use this handy cozy, for every day use, they can be washed, where as a foam cozy can not. My 2 sons birthdays are in the month of June and I'm going to put their initials on each of them for a personal touch. Hope my ideas spark some ideas of your own... Happy Crocheting...
