Coffee Cup Cozy


I created this cozy because my local coffee house doesn’t provide the sleeves to protect against the heat. Plus, the coffee always splashes out as I’m driving so I have designed this cozy to button closed and soak up any splashes. Button it open when you are ready to drink. And since it’s cotton just throw it in the wash when needed.

Materials: Worsted Weight cotton – Size G crochet hook

Change colors at any point to customize your coffee cozy. I have used a variegated contrasted by a solid for the one pictured.

Ch 36, slip st to first chain to form ring (be careful not to twist the chain).

Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc in same ch and in each chain around. Slip st to beginning st. (36 sc)

Rnd 2: Ch 3, 3 dc in same st, skip 3 sts *4 dc in next st, skip 3 sts* around. Slip st to top of beginning ch 3. (9 fans)

Rnd 3: Slip st in next st and in between the 2nd & 3rd sts of fan (center of fan). Ch 3, 3 dc in same space, *4 dc in between 2nd & 3rd st of next fan* around. Slip st to top of beginning ch 3. (9 fans)

Rnd 4: Slip st in next st and in between the 2nd & 3rd sts of fan (center of fan). Ch 3, 3 dc in same space, *4 dc in between 2nd & 3rd st of next fan* twice.

Rnd 5: Ch 1, turn so that wrong side is facing. Slip st in next st and in between the 2nd & 3rd sts of fan (center of fan). Ch 3, 3 dc in same space, *4 dc in between 2nd & 3rd st of next fan* twice.

Rnd 6: Ch 1, turn so that right side is facing. Sc in top of same st. *ch 3, sc in next st* five times.
