Chill Out Cozies for Freezer Pops! Super Simple to Knit or Crochet

Here’s a project that is very basic and easy and you don’t have to wait for the cooler weather to enjoy using what you have created! These Freezer Pop Cozies are easy enough that even beginners can complete them with your help. And with the promise of being able to use their creation and enjoy a freezer pop without cold hands, they will be totally inspired to finish the project.

I’ve included a knit and a crochet version below so either skill can be learned. Post a photo of the new knitter or crocheter on Instagram with the hashtag #redheartyarns or upload a photo to the Red Heart Yarn Lovers Gallery with their Freezer Pop Cozy to celebrate their achievement!
