FreezePop Cozy - Free Crochet Pattern


It's SUMMAH-TIME!!! It's time to be outside, at the lake, on your bike, and giving your kids (or yourself) a freezing cold sticky treat to stay cool.

FreezePops (or any of the other brand names you call them, but I don't want to get in trouble with trademarks) are a summer staple. My older kids tend to dive right in, giving no thought to that thing that happens when your hand gets stuck on something cold. But my youngest is a little pickier - or smarter, we can't tell yet. She asks for a washcloth to wrap around it before she'll hold the pop.

But as all the special people in infomercials say... There's got to be a better way!


Out of that inspiration came this quick and fun summer project - FreezePop Cozies! That's right, I found one more thing we can wrap in yarn to make it better.

And this one has a secret weapon.

To sweeten it even more, there's not only a hole at the bottom for the used plastic to pull through, but I added an optional hair band - those tiny tiny ones for kids - that actually keeps the pops pushed up. It's great for the little ones (and the lazy ones). You can take big enough bites, guaranteed to give you a brain freeze.
