These are super quick to make and great for summer. I like them because they keep my cans from leaving condensation puddles that might end up wetting my work. I noticed someone found them to be too big. I wonder if maybe their gauge was off. I used Lily Peaches and cream (which is the same as Sugar and cream) with a 5mm hook. Mine turned out fine.

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

If the can holder comes out too big, measure the work to the can. Make the bottom and if it looks too big, take out a row. You can also decrease at the top to make it fit a little better also.

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

@Maxielee803 if you select the text with your mouse and copy and paste it into a word document, you'll be able to make the text bigger there. Thanks for asking!

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...

This looks easy enough! I can't wait to make some!
