Coffee Cup Cozy Pattern

I started making these coffee cozies a few weeks ago.  I was going to use someone else's pattern, but just could not find exactly what I wanted.  I designed this after my french press cozy pattern.  I am really happy with how this turned out, and I hope you have the same results.



Pretty gorgeous, right? I have given these as gifts and people seem to really love them. I have sent them simple (below) or adorned (above). Men prefer the simple way, but I just love the cute adornments! I have crocheted both stars and flowers and attached them. Lovely, I say. Then again, the simple looks fabulous too!




Please feel free to use this pattern for personal or small scale sales use.  Just don't go mass producing these in a sweatshop. I would appreciate it if you linked back to my pattern if you sell a finished product online. If you sell it at a craft fair, no linkback is necessary. Enough of the small talk, here's what you really want... the pattern!


Coffee Cup Cozy
Supplies:
  • Small amount of yarn.  I like worsted weight, but you can just use whatever you have and adapt the pattern accordingly.
  • Size H Crochet Hook (I have also used G and I, like I said, the pattern is adaptable)
  • Yarn Needle
  • Flower Embellishment (I like using this pattern, but feel free to use whatever one you like, or none at all!) or Star Embellishment (pattern to come soon!)


Abbreviations:
Ch - Chain
SS - Slip Stitch
HDC - Half Double Crochet

Instructions:
Round 1: Chain 14
Round 2: skip first 2 Ch, HDC in each stitch across, Ch2  (12 hdc)
Rounds 3 - 22:  HDC in each stitch across, Ch2 (basically continue in the same manner until your piece is approximately 8" when laid flat). On the last round, skip the Ch2 and Fasten Off.
Finishing: Lay the coffee cozy flat, lining up the first and last row.  SS in both rows to seam together.

Flip right side out and attach embellishment.


Simple, right? And lovely! Go ahead and make one today! Pair it with a gift card to a local coffee shop and you will have an excellent birthday gift!!

  5. I don't quite understand the pattern. Is it worked in the round or flat? If it is flat then do you graft the two sides together when you are done? If you can't tell, I am fairly new to crochet.

    1. Hi Laura,
      No problem! It is worked flat and then you sew (graft) the two sides together when you are finished. Let me know if you have any other questions!
