A little Berry for Your Cup!

Ok, so it’s getting close to that ever wonderful hot cocoa time of year. To bring that full force I‘m going to share the pattern for my Berry Cheesecake cup cozy. I have one in Cherry and made my baby sister one in Blueberry. I know I have tons of early morning football games with my kids and I’m not the only one sitting on the sidelines with a hot cup. I like to distinguish myself from everyone else. I also have a reusable hot cup that the cozy will fit perfectly onto as well.
If you’re a beginner, don’t worry, this is simple and consists of mainly single crochet.
