Crochet Cup Cozy Pattern
Yarn: Cotton yarn 8ply (I love the look of Lion Brand’s Twisted Cotton Blend)
Hook: 3mm (I’m using this set of hooks from Amazon)
Yarn needle (for weaving in ends at the end)
Ch = chain
Hdc = half double crochet
Sl st= slip stitch
Same as my flower cup cozy, this pattern is for a 8.5cm (3,5″) in diameter and 12.5cm (5″) tall cup. Adjust the initial number of chains to fit around your cup.
Note: It’s worked by crocheting in spiral rounds. That way the seam is eliminated and it looks great from any side!
Ch 40, join the chain with a slip stitch (adjust the number of chains to fit around your cup.
Tip: As with the Flower Tea Cup Cozy, to get the right amount of chains needed for your cup – stretch the chain and wrap around the base of your cup. The ends should just barely touch. As you start working on it it will stretch.
Row 1: HDC in second chain and across. Do NOT connect the row with a slip stitch as you normally would.
Row 2: Starting the spiral – work HDC into the space between the first two HDC and across (not into stitches).
Refer to this video for more guidance!
Note: there won’t be a destinguished start and end of a row – crochet in spiral rounds.
Row 3- desired height: Continue working HDC in spiral until you reach the desired height (approx. 12 rows)
Note: Check the height of your cup sleeve and adjust the number of rows accordingly. It should not cover the whole cup, only the middle part. You may need less than 12 rows, it depends on the thickness of your yarn, the size of your hook and the yarn tension.
Last row: when you reach the desired height, work until the approx. start of row (you can see the tail of yarn where you started):
Work SC in each of the next two spaces and Sl St in the next two. It will even out the height of the row and create a smoother finish. Refer to the video above for visual guidance.
Tie off and weave in the ends.
