Keep Bees Out of Your Drink with This Easy (AND CUTE!) Straw Cover Pattern!

straw cover

Easy Peasy Straw Cover

Supplies Needed:

Small amounts of Paton’s Grace, but any #3 Light Weight Yarn will work

Size D/3.25mm hook (I crochet very tightly, so you may use a B or C)

Glossary:

MC – Magic Circle (Magic Loop, Magic Ring)

beg – beginning

sc – single crochet

ch – chain

BLO – Back Loop Only

hdc – half double crochet

dc – double crochet

slst – slip stitch

FO – fasten off

Start by working 7sc into a Magic Circle.  HERE is a great pic and video tutorial for the magic circle if you don’t know how to do one.  Slst to join in beg sc.

Round 1:  ch 1, in BLO, hdc in each stitch around.  Slst to join to beg hdc. [at this point I sew on the flower, because it’s easier now than later]

Round 2:  ch 1, hdc in each stich around for 21 stitches. (be sure to skip the ch 1 from the beginning of this round.)  Slst in the next st.

Round 3:  ch 35, hdc in 8th ch from hook and in each ch back to the first one. FO.  Weave in end.

That’s it!  I added a flower to mine, but you can do anything!  Here’s the pattern for the flower I used:

Work 5sc into a MC, join with a slst to beg sc. FO

Attach petal color and *ch 3, 2dc ch 3, slst in same st. Slst in next st.* Repeat from * to * around in each st. FO leaving a long enough tail to sew flower onto top of straw cover.

Enjoy!!

    This is SO adorable and so practical for those living in the parts of the world where bees (and other critters) love to climb into any available beverage that’s left for 10 seconds unattended. If you were to think about making a few other top ideas, I know people would be happy to buy it, especially if you added a topper for the 12 oz. can.
