Peek-A-Boo Cup Cozy

peekabooI love the texture contrast in this crochet cup cozy pattern, jumping from straight, knit-like lines, to the “pebbled” look of the alternating single and double crochet stitches. It feels like the middle texture is “peeking” out from between the lines, thus the “peek-a-boo” title. This is a simple crochet cup cozy pattern that has lots of texture, so you don’t need any embellishments to make it look classy. But of course, since it is a clean look, it also looks great with accessories and the possibilities are endless! A nicely placed button or flower looks great! Have fun!
