Materials:

  • 5.5 mm "I" crochet hook 
  • Worsted weight yarn of your choice (I used Red Heart Super Saver in "Blue" and "Cherry Red")
  • Tapestry Needle 
  • Scissors
  • Optional: Patch and either a glue gun or needle and thread to sew it on (scroll down to see the version with the patch below!)

Sizing: 


I made this cup cozy to fit a 16 oz coffee cup (grande). If you need to modify the circumference, you can work more or less starting chains to begin. To modify the height, work more or less rounds. 


Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:

Instructions:

Note: I made two cozies, one was worked by working just one color before switching colors for a striping effect. For the other cozy I worked two rounds of red, 5 rounds of blue, then two more rounds of red. I then attached the patch to the center of the wide blue stripe. Feel free to make yours exactly how you like!


Part 1-The Cozy (worked in rounds)

Ch 28, join with a sl st in the furthest ch from the hook.
Round 1: ch 2, then work a hdc in each ch. Join with a sl st to close round.
Round 2: ch 2, then work a hdc in each ch. Join with a sl st to close round.
Repeat row 2 for a total of 9 rounds or desired height.
To continue onto the cape, do not fasten off the yarn and continue below.

Part 2-The Cape (worked in rows)

Ch 2, then work a hdc in each of the next 10 sts.
Row 1: ch 2 and turn, then work a hdc in each st across.
Repeat row 2 until cape is desired length. I made the cozy with the patch have a cape the same length as the height of the cozy. For the striped cozy, I made mine roughly half the size.

Weave in any ends that remain and if you'd like to add a patch, do so by hot gluing it or sewing it on. Do NOT iron it on! If you used acrylic yarn , it will most definitely melt your project!
