Yarn: Any 100% Cotton yarn, #3 light worsted/DK/8ply
Abbreviations (US Terms):
Ch = chain
Hdc = half double crochet
Sl st= slip stitch
Note: This pattern is for an 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 the round 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 you work in spiral rounds (see my Crochet Simple Cup Cozy pattern). When crocheting in spiral rounds, you eliminate the seam altogether so your cup cozy will look beautiful from any angle! 🙂
Cup Cozy Crochet Pattern
Ch 40, join the chain with a Sl St (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 it around the base of your cup. The ends should just barely touch. As you start working on it, the cup cozy should stretch slighly.
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 cover only the middle part, not the whole cup! 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 with Sl St to create 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 seven 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 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. Ensure it’s on the side where you joined the rounds on top of the seam.
To give you 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 sizes 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 the ends.
Hope you enjoyed it! 🙂
