Coffee Cup Cozy

Coffee Cup Cozy

Nothing like a cool crisp fall morning to make you want to have a hot cup of coffee (or hot cocoa)! Keep your hands protected with this easy coffee cup cozy made with the super soft velvet yarn.

I promised another fall pattern using this wonderful pumpkin color of Yarn Bee’s Velvety Smooth yarn and here it is – the Velvet Coffee Cup Cozy!

This project is perfect for beginners because it is made with a simple variation of a beginner stitch – single crochet.

You’ll love how the cozy feels in your hands while you crochet and while you sip on your favorite hot drink!

This coffee cup cozy is a quick and practical project perfect for a gift or for yourself.

Special Stitches and Abbreviations:

Sc (single crochet) = Insert hook into stitch; YO, draw up a loop; YO, pull through both loops on hook

Front Loop Only = There are normally 2 loops at the top of each stitch and usually we insert our hook into both loops when working a stitch; For this technique insert hook into only the front loop of each stitch

ch = chain

YO = yarn over

sp = space

sk = skip

hk = hook

lp = loop


Cozy is worked back and forth in rows

Then the last and first row are joined together to form a small tube

Lastly both the top and bottom are edged with both colors


With Pumpkin color ch 9

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hk and in each ch across. Turn. (8 sc)

Row 2: Ch 1, working in the front loop only, sc in each st across. Turn.

Repeat Row 2 until measures 8 1/2″ long (approximately 18 rows)

Fasten off leaving a long tail for assembly

Finishing and Assembly:

Join with sl st in any st on top edge; ch 1; work sc evenly around the top edge; join with sl st to 1st sc. Fasten off.
