How to Crochet a Penil Grip

I love using my pencil cozy on my Apple pencil and fineliner pens. They feel so much more secure, and having the extra width and a better grip reduces fatigue. This is especially helpful for young students and older adults. But it also just feels better and gives you more control.

You can experiment with different kinds of yarns to see what feels best to you. Just adjust the number of chain stitches at the beginning and adjust the rows to fit around your pencil or pen.

Keep in mind that you can use the cozy’s for colored pencils and crayons.

In the video, you’ll see step-by-step instructions on how to make a crochet cozy. I’ve geared the video toward beginners so that anyone can make one.

How to Crochet a Pencil Cozy:

I used medium yarn (4) and a number 5 hook. It took 5-6 yards of yarn, so this is a great project to use up your scraps!

Chain 14 (You can make it longer or shorter.)

sc in the second chain from the end.

sc 12 more to make a total of 13

ch 1, then turn

sc 13, ch 1, turn

Repeat rows of single crochet until you have a total of 4 -5 rows. Test how 4 rows fit around your pencil or pen; if it just touches, you can stop. If you can’t make the ends touch, crochet one more row and test again. For a regular-sized pencil, the width of your crochet should be 3cm or 1 1/8 inch.

Pull the yarn through the last loop and cut off around 20 inches or 50 cm.

Whip stitch the two sides together.

Hide the leftover ends by sewing them into the crochet and trimming the excess.
