Quick Gift Mug Cozy (12 Weeks of Gifting Series), Free Crochet Pattern + Video

The Quick Gift Mug Cozy is one of the fastest gifts ever that pairs beautifully with a gift mug.  Fill the mug with some some tea, coffee, or chocolates for a thoughtful and lightning quick last minute gift!

This project is part of the 12 Weeks of Gifting Series!  Each week from NOW to the end of December, I'll be sharing a new pattern for something that is super easy and super quick to whip up.  We'll be using the same yarn and same hook size for every single project, just switching up the colors a bit.  Many of these projects can be made in just one sitting too!

With the holiday season fast approaching, sometimes it's hard to squeeze in the time needed to make handmade gifts for everyone on your list!  No worries, our 12 Weeks of Gifting Series to the rescue!  Click the link below for the full directory of projects:

Queue up on Ravelry by clicking the button below:

  • L (8.0 mm) crochet hook 
  • Red Heart Super Saver Chunky (Color shown is "Tea Leaf")
  • 1 Button (I used one that was about an inch wide)
  • Tapestry Needle 
  • Scissors 
  • Tape Measure

  • 10 inches long (without loop)
  • 3 inches wide
  • button loop is approximately 1 inch long

Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:


Ch 6

Row 1: Work a hdc in the second chain from the hook.  Work a hdc in each chain across.

Row 2:  Ch 2 and turn.  Work a hdc in the first stitch and in each stitch across.  Work a hdc in the top chain of the turning chain.

Repeat row 2 until the piece is approximately 9.5 inches long or desired length (depending on your mug circumference), Leaving about a finger width on either side of the mug handle.

Do not fasten off and work a single crochet all around the rectangle, working 3 sc in each corner.  At one end of the strip in the center of the edge, ch 6, then work a slip stitch at the base of the chain.  Continue working the sc edge, join with a slip stitch at the end, and fasten off.

Wrap cozy around mug to determine button placement.  Sew button to cozy using a matching piece of yarn.  Weave in any ends that remain.
