Patriotic 4th of July Gnome Cup Cozy works up quickly in scrap amounts of yarn.
This cup cozy would look fantastic in Christmas colors or change it up and add different embellishments for year round Gnome fun. For my crochet friends outside the United States, get creative with your colors and how you work your hat. For the Australian flag you could make your hat body blue, hat band white and the brim red. Add the stars all over the main body of the hat to be more in keeping with your flag. So many different options!
I am including instructions for both a no-sew and sew nose option. For the no-sew nose you will be working a bobble stitch for the nose while working the beard. So easy!
Pattern purchase also includes 4 patriotic themed gift cup cozy inserts for gifting or selling your cup cozies at craft fairs!
The adorable mini star appliques are perfect little stars that can be taken to any project. So quick & easy! Link to complete photo and video tutorial provided to help you with the stars if needed.
