Free Pattern: Chiffon Cake with Fruit Topping (Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, cube box)


I got an order in my Etsy shop for  this custom tissue cozy. It’s a combination of this pattern for the main body of the cake and the toppings from my free pattern.

Fruit close

It took me a minute to figure out how I wanted to arrange the fruit on top, since there isn’t a lot of room to work with, plus, you can’t really put fruit over the tissue opening! But I think it turned out really cute!

Free Pattern: Citrus Twist – Lemon, Lime, Orange



This is a quick pattern for a lemon, lime, orange, or citrus slice to add on top of your cozies!

In the past, I have crocheted these with Cascade 220, since it comes in so many great colors, but I modified the pattern a little bit for a more regular worsted weight yarn, like Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, because it is more accessible in stores.

For any kind of citrus slice, there will usually be three colors: A) the fruit flesh color, which is general more pale than the skin, B) white, or the rind color, C) the skin color.

Free Pattern: Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting (Red Heart Soft, Deborah Norville Everyday Worsted, cube box)


This pattern is basically the cube-shaped version of white Chiffon Cake, with the major difference being that this cozy will show the “inside” of the cake with some cake layers and frosting.

I chose Red Heart Soft for the chocolate because I think it’s a really nice, rich color. I generally prefer working with Vanna’s Choice, since I like the feel of it personally, but you really can’t beat the color here of the Red Heart Soft. I chose Deborah Norville Everyday Soft Worsted for the yellow, because it is really bright, saturated, and kind of a cartoony version of what I imagine yellow cake to be. But you can pick your favorite cake flavor and frosting flavor to work up this cozy. (You can click on photos to enlarge them.)

Free Pattern: Turkey Tissue Box with Roasted Veggies

TurkeystarI realize that this is not a cake at all, but, it’s still a tissue box cozy! The pattern is free at and includes the turkey, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, and lettuce dish cloth.


If you wanted to, you could use this pattern for baby carrots on a carrot cake tissue cozy.


If you leave the tops off the tomatoes, they can instantly become cherries :).
