I love my Sheetz™ coffee, and I love making cup cozies to use while holding my Sheetz™ coffee. I decided, as we slide into Spring, that I needed a pretty, flowery cup cozy. That gave me the idea for this beautiful lavender flower cup cozy. Some people have also said that the flowers look like hyacinth so depending on your favorite, it could be either. Either way, it’s beautiful and gives it that farmhouse charm.

With E (3.5mm) hook and green yarn, ch-2, insert hook into 1st ch (2 loops are now on the hook).
Row 1: Ch-1 in left-hand loop only. Remove left-hand loop (careful not to drop or unravel this loop). Ch-1 in right-hand loop only. Place left-hand loop back on hook.
Row 2- 12: Repeat Row 1 (11 more times).
Stem will measure approximately 2½” long.
Row 13. Pull a loop through both loops on hook. FO. Weave in ends.
Don’t worry about perfection of working in every loop. Nature is often not perfect, that is what makes it so beautiful. You could even try purposely skipping a few loops between rows and petals to give it a parser look. There is many different types of Lavender in the wild.
With E (3.5mm) hook and purple yarn, sl st in 1st loop of top of stem. There are four loops per i-cord row (see pic below).
Round 1: *work picot, sl in next loop* repeat 3 times, work picot. ( 4 picots)
Round 2: sl st in loop directly below 1st loop of previous round, *work picot, sl st in next loop* repeat 3 times, work picot.
Round 3-7: Repeat row 2 (5 more times) (approx. half stem)
FO. Weave in ends.
At this point, the flower’s petals will be appear more stacked. Before sewing on to cozy, give the flower a slight twist so petals appear more random.
Cut a small amount of jute twine. Group flowers together and tie jute twine into a bow around flower’s stems. Sew flowers to front of cup cozy.
