Coffee Cozy


(This pattern originally appeared online at Craftown.com. Copyrights have now reverted to me, the designer.)

Got mocha? Perfect for personalizing your "cup of joe" - this cute coffee cozy adds a little flair to your drink! Create a quirky coffee cozy with my free crochet pattern for yourself, a friend or as a quick gift. This project is simple and easy and great for beginners or anyone wanting a relaxing crochet project. Make some in a variety of colors and color combinations to really personalize your coffee cozy creations. This simple cozy would make a nice teacher gift too, paired with a coffee gift card of course!

*Note: This coffee cozy was made to fit a 16 oz. cup but could be easily adapted to fit larger or smaller cups.

Bring It Together:
Using yarn and a yarn needle, sew the button onto the coffee cozy, approximately 2 inches in from edge on opposite side of button closure loop. This will make your coffee cozy fit snuggly on an average sized cardboard or Styrofoam 16 oz. coffee cup. (See image.)


Extras: The yarn I used tended to curl up so you may want to block this project when finished and before giving as a gift. Or use my shortcut: I saved a 16 oz. disposable coffee cup and used it as my form for the finished cozy. I put the cozy on the cup for a few days and that took out the kinks in the project, as the cup keeps the cozy on tight. Enjoy using or giving your finished coffee cozy!

Rock the hook,
Tia
