It’s a super easy pattern using half double crochet stitches. The white section is worked in the 3rd loop to give it a little more texture. (Here’s a great tutorial on crocheting in the 3rd loop.) I used I Love This Cotton yarn with a G/4.0mm hook to stitch up my cozies.
Here’s the pattern along with a link to a free PDF for easy printing.
