This crochet cup cozy sleeve is an easy and quick crochet project!
Scroll down to see the free crochet pattern.
Yarn: Any 100% Cotton yarn, 8ply (DK, light worsted)
Ch = chain
Hdc = half double crochet
Sl st= slip stitch
Note: 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.
The cup cozy is worked by crocheting in rounds and joining the rounds with a slip stitch. I made the flower mainly to conceal the seam that is slightly visible on the side. If you don’t want to have a seam or make a flower then I suggest to crochet in spiral rounds (see my Crochet Simple Cup Cozy pattern). When crocheting in spiral rounds you eliminate the seam alltogether so your cup cozy will look amazing from any angle! 🙂
Flower Cup Sleeve Pattern
Ch 40, join the chain with a slip stitch (adjust the number of chains to fit around your cup).
Tip: To chain the right amount of chains 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 should stretch.
Row 1-16: Ch 1, Hdc in first stitch and across, sl st (total 40)
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 16 rows, it depends on how tall your cup is!
How to crochet a Flower
You can make the flower in any colour you like, I made one in the same colour as the cup cozy and another one in white.
Chain 4, join in a circle.
Petal: chain 4, make a Puff stitch (yarn over, insert your hook into the space inside the circle and pull up a tall loop. Repeat 7 times. You’ll have 15 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all loops. Chain 1 to secure the Puff st). Chain 4, slip stitch to circle (refer to photos or watch the video below).
Repeat 3 times for each petal.
Chain 15 to make the stem.
Attach the flower by sewing it on your cup cozy with the yarn needle. Make sure it’s on the side where you joined the rounds on top of the seam.
To give you a visual guidance on how to crochet a flower take a look at my post How to Make Crochet Flowers. There is also a video demonstration if you scroll down to the bottom of the page. There I’m using different materials (yarn and crochet hook size are different) but the process is the same. You can make three, four or five petal flowers – it’s up to your preference!
Weave in ends.
Hope you enjoed it! 🙂
