Free Reindeer Cup Cozy

I found this great pattern that would make a great gift.


Christmas is coming but I know that I don't have to tell anyone out there.
One thing that I can never go without at Christmastime is most definitely my hot cocoa. If you're like me, then you will definitely appreciate this Reindeer Cup Cozy. Not only will it keep your coffee, tea, or hot cocoa warm longer, but it will also protect your hands. The best part, though, is the adorable reindeer pattern that makes this crochet coffee cozy so festive and perfect for the holidays. It will make your children smile when they drink their cocoa.
