Crochet Coffee Cozy Pattern

Mug Cozy Pattern

Happy New Year!  I can’t believe we said goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016 already!  The past year went by so fast but I am looking forward to a new year full of yarn, patterns, hooks, and needles.

I have a quick and easy pattern to share with you today.  It’s been  chilly around here lately, and with this cold weather I find myself stopping at Starbucks on the way home from work more than ever :).  The coffee trips inspired me to make these fun and soft cup cozies!

Not only will these work great for warm beverages, but cold drinks as well!  Below is the pattern to make your own! 🙂

  1. Just curious what your stance is on people selling items made from your patterns? I always check with pattern makers for future reference.

    1. Items from my patterns may be sold but I ask that if selling online that credit be given back to me with a link to my blog. Thanks for asking!

  2. Do you have a video on how to do this? I’m not sure how to cross stitch a circle, I’ve only done washcloths and scarfs so far.

  3. Very cute! But for some reason mine turned out pretty crooked… Wondering if maybe I did the spiraling part wrong?

  4. I don’t understand the “spiraling” instructions, seems like some details are left out. Why not join each round and start a new row each time instead?

    1. Nope! No instructions are left out. I designed it to be worked continuously in half double crochets without joining because I wanted the cozy to be seamless. When you join rounds it can create a bit of a visual seam.

      If you prefer to join each round and start a new row, that will work too!

      Hope that helps!

  5. Hi. It appears thst your cozy doesn’t have a visible “Bump” on the top and bottom which I always get while working in a spiral. Any tips on how to reduce the size of bump?

    1. Hi Carolyn! A little trick for making the top look a little more even is to do a couple of slip stitches after you complete the last stitch of your last round. That should help to smooth out your uneven edge. When you don’t join your rounds and crochet in a spiral, the top does tend to be a bit uneven, but once you put the cozy on your cup it really isn’t noticeable.

      If you don’t like to crochet in a spiral, you can always join your rounds and start a new round with each round if you prefer. I chose not to join the rounds because I didn’t want a seam. 🙂

      Hope this helps!!

  6. I am very new to learning how to crochet. Your video tutorial was wonderful and easy to follow. Thank you so much!

  7. Curious as to if your yarn ever gets frizzy while you are working it? I just started this project with the exact yarn you suggested and the yarn has become so untwisted and frizzy that you can’t see the stitches..any suggestions for when this yarn starts to get messy? I was less than half way thru and had to give up…

  8. Hi Brittney. Would the coffee cozy pattern work using cotton yarn? Love your blog and patterns.


  9. Love this little project & thanks for the video. I finished this in a evening and will be giving it to a friend. It turned out perfect… thank for the free info. Totally amazing.

    1. You could really make a cozy with any kind of yarn you prefer! Just note, that if the yarn you pick differs from that in the pattern, your sizing might be off so you might want to keep that in mind.

  10. Hi! I love the look of this pattern, very pretty!
    I also love the buttons you used. I haven’t been able to find any like that. Are you able to advise where you purchased them?


    1. Hi Julia! At the end of each round, you will join with the 1st hdc of the round and not the chain. You’ll begin the round by chaining, and will put your 1st hdc in the same stitch as the join. Let me know if you have any other questions!

        1. Awesome, that’s great! I bet they are adorable! I’d love to see them! If you’re on Instagram tag your pics with the hashtag #justbecrafty so I can see your lovely work!

  11. Hi, love the pattern. Just a question, why do you need a stitch marker? Can’t yoy just go around and around until you’ve reached the desired height?


    1. Hi Jess! You definitely don’t need to have a stitch marker, but it just helps you keep your place in your crochet.

  12. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong! Mine looks like a circle (almost like a doily), and if I fold it it becomes a semicircle, not a rectangle. 🙁

    1. Hi Mikaela! It sounds like you may be unintentionally increasing your stitches each round? In the post I have a video tutorial showing how to make this from start to finish – let me know if that helps!

  13. Hello! Love this pattern but I’m wondering if there is a multiple for the beginning chain so I can make it smaller. I have 1 mug in mind that this length with be too long on. Thank you!

  14. Hi sorry if I’ve missed you saying this, but what weight is your yarn? I can’t find the yarn you used to look. Thanks!

      1. Thank you! I’m very new to crocheting so some of the terminology used across the board is a bit confusing! Lol

  15. Thanks so much for sharing your pattern. Took me just a few minutes to get it made, while the hubby is watching the super bowl. Fantastic pattern, fast easy and looks great. And best of all in the morning when I make my tea… I won’t burn my fingers. ? lol
    Thanks again,

    1. Hi April! I’m so happy you enjoyed the pattern! And it also works really well for iced drinks in summer so your fingers won’t freeze!! Happy crocheting! 🙂

  16. Hi Brittany I love this pattern and just learned how to crochet and found your instructions very easy. I already gave one as a gift. I love the color of the yarn you used in the tutorial. Do you know what that color was. Thanks

    1. Hi Sue! The yarn I used in the pattern and tutorial is Lion’s Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn (pictured in colors Linen, Charcoal Grey, and Silver Grey). Unfortunately Vanna’s Choice is now discontinued but Red Heart Super Saver Yarn is almost identical and comes in very similar colors. Red Heart can be found in pretty much any large craft store chain if you’re located in the US. Hope this helps!

      1. Hi Brittany,
        Thank you for your response. In the tutorial, where you laid out all the supplies, what color was that yarn or am I wrong in thinking it wasn’t linen, charcoal grey or silver grey. I just thought it was a very pretty bluish color LOL. The computer could’ve altered the color. Not sure, but I do appreciate this pattern that you created and I found some tumblers on amazon to use with the cozy for Christmas presents (Copco) . I had gone to Starbucks with a cozy to see if they had tumblers other than the disposable kind and the girls behind the counter saw the cozy and said they would buy them. Just thought I’d share since it’s your pattern!! Great job!

        1. Oh yeah! It does look like a blue in the video, I don’t think I noticed that before!! It was definitely my poor lighting in this early YouTube video that made the color look different, haha! That color was Charcoal Grey.

          And thats a great idea to get tumblers to go along with the cozies as gifts! Also, thats wonderful if you decide to sell your cozies! They are great sale items because you can make a lot of them with not too much yarn and time. I wish you all the best if you do decide to sell your finished cozies!! 🙂 Happy crocheting to you!!

  17. hi, I have been learning to crochet forafew years I am seventy eight and you are the first person to teach me anything!! you are so slow and easy to understand ! thank you I just completed my first complete project and I have learned so much. thank you

    1. Hi Lenda! This makes me so happy to hear, and you have just made my day! Welcome, to the world of crochet. I can’t wait to hear about the next project you choose to make, so be sure to keep me posted! 🙂

  18. I plan on making these and selling them so I get more money to buy supplies to crochet soap sacks for charity. I was wondering if I needed to get written permission to sell the items I make from your pattern? Selling them will make it easier to buy soap and cotton yarn to make soap sacks for charity.

    Thank you for posting your pattern, I love it!

    Crystal L.

    1. Hi Crystal! Yes, you are allowed to sell items made by my patterns! I just ask that if selling online, you link back to my website (www.justbcrafty.com), and you must use your own photos to sell your handmade items. To learn more about the process please check out my pattern permissions page here! (https://justbcrafty.com/pattern-permissions)

      I wish you the best of luck with your business! 🙂

  19. I was wondering how much yarn is used to make one of these adorable cozies? I’m really looking forward to starting this project!

  20. Thank you for the pattern and video! You made it super easy to follow. I used to crochet In middle school with my grandmother, now in my 30s I’m trying to pick the skill back up. Thanks again for this quick and easy design!

  21. Hi! Love your patterns! I’m having trouble joining chain circles without twisting them. Do you have any tips on that?

    1. Hi Mylah! Thanks so much, and thank you for your question! That can be a bit tricky… my tip is to lay the chain flat out in front of you and to orient it so its perfectly straight and flat. While its laying out flat, fold it in half onto itself making sure that its free of any twists. Put your hook into both the first and last chains. The chain should still be free of twists, and you can now slip the last chain through the first chain, and then begin as usual. I still sometimes get a few rows into a project and realize I’ve twisted my chain and the only thing to do is to rip it back and start again.😅
      I’ll be adding this to my list of tutorials to do! Happy crocheting, friend!
