Every now and then, when I check on my site stats, I like to see the search terms people use that bring them to my blog. I see the usual “free skull crochet pattern” or “cute amigurumi dolphin pattern” and some times the terms are a little more random like “how to take pics of starfish”. But the one that caught my eye recently was “how to crochet a minion beer cosy”. And naturally my first thought was, “Why haven’t I made one yet?!”
So, to the person looking for a Minion Beer Cosy, thanks for the inspiration. Here you go:
