It is hot, and that means Popsicle weather! Keep those hands from freezing with crochet popsicle holders. These popsicle koozies are perfect for summertime fun!
The weather in Missouri for the past several days has hit triple digits!
It has been officially hotter than Hell – Hell, Michigan that is. 🙂
All that heat means it is time to get out the Popsicles (aka freezer pops). The boys enjoy them but complain about how their hands are SO cold.
That is when I grabbed up my hook and started working up a holder for the popsicles.
I chose to use 100% cotton yarn for several reasons:
1. Easy to wash
These holders are going to be used by children young and old. Kids make messes.
Cotton yarn holds up to multiple washes better.
If you are afraid of them shrinking, lay them out to dry (it is hot enough to put them outside with no problem) instead of tossing them in the dryer.
2. Feels thicker for a warmer feel
Even though the weight of the yarn is the same as acrylic yarn, it just feels thicker and warm.
It will help keep the cold away from little hands.
3. Absorbs condensation
It’s hot, and that means ice melts quickly and it creates some condensation.
The holders are great for any age but they are perfect for smaller children. If you have older children, you may like these freeze pop sleeves.
