Circles to Squares Coffee Cozy

School is about to start just in time for our Coffee Cozy number four! This coffee cozy holds a classic technique - the granny square, and makes it into a fun and new style of gift. This coffee cozy works up really quickly and paired with a $2 reusable coffee cup from Starbucks and you've got a perfect gift for that new teacher, a new boss, or an old friend; really anyone!

Don't stick with my color scheme (unless you really like it). Make all of the circles yellow to bring a little sunshine to your friend's day. Make them all red for a threesome of apples for any new teacher. There are so many possibilities so let your imaginations run wild and then tag me so that I can see the results of all of those creative juices flowing! (Instagram: @9603designco).
