Cool DIY Coffee Cozy


  • Yarn {your choice of color}
  • Crochet hook, size I/6
  • 25-28mm button
  • Thread, scissors, needle


  1. Foundation: Ch 10
  2. Row 1: sc in second chain from hook and each chain across, turn {9 sc}

  3. Row 2: ch 1, sc in first sc and in each across, turn {9 sc} *Repeat Row 2 until your piece reaches approximately 8 3/4″.
  4. This length will comfortably fit a Starbucks cup. Have an empty cup on hand that’s the size you want to use your cozy for so that you can determine how long it needs to be to wrap the cup completely with just a bit of overlap.
  5. Buttonhole: ss in first four sc, chain 6, skip fifth sc and ss in last four sc. This will accomodate a 25-28mm button.  If your button is smaller or larger than that, adjust the number of chains that form your loop.

  6. Border: 2 sc in corner stitch, sc along long edge evenly until you reach the corner.
  7. 2 sc in corner stitch, sc along short edge, 1 sc in bottom corner and evenly in every stitch until you reach the final corner, sc once in corner and in first 3 ss, ss in 4th sc, ss in each ch of the button loop, ss in next ss, sc in final 3 stitches.

  8. Join, cut, and tuck ends.
  9. Sew your button in place.  Wrap your cozy around a cup to see where the button needs to go.

I am always on the look out for projects that are really easy to complete. My crochet club likes to make things like these and donate them. This would be perfect to donate to the local church for bingo prizes. Our homemade goodies are always a favorite.

I work in a small office and from time to time we get treated by the boss for coffee, latte or hot cocoa. I love to run the errands and this would be so cool to present each associate with there very own coffee cozy on the next go round. I know they will all be surprised. With these being able to me made in little time, I know I can have them ready for my next coffee run.

I love this idea and can't wait to make a few of these for the holidays. They will make great gifts for the people in my life who love coffee!

This coffee mug cozy reminds me very much of the cozies that I made a few years ago to give to all my son's teachers at school. I tied bakery twine with a tag to add to the homemade appeal. Everybody loved their cozies. For me, they are one of the most satisfying and fun gifts to work up. They use up a ton of your stash and odds and ends yarns, and nobody even knows that. They think you picked out specialty yarn just for them!

This crochet coffee cozy is a good project for beginners and it's cute for gifts and for keeps. Think about all the colors in your yarn stash and all the possibilities with cute buttons. I love to give simple gifts like this with coffee gift cards or coffee cups.

Great idea for coffee cozies, thanks for sharing! Lately, struggled with the same problem and used another approach. I made coffee sleeve out of cardboard. Fits really good and keeps my hands pretty comfortable. By the way, it's protecting more effectively than original one. Uploaded on my channel here https//youtu.be/yxiYeaAaOo?t=1m47s

This One Hour Crochet Coffee Cozy is the best pattern for a beginner. Pattern is easy to read, pictures help see what the final project looks like. All you beginners should start with one of these to make sure you enjoy the art of crocheting. It will not take you long to work one of these up and they could even be used as gifts. Have fun and enjoy this project.

This pattern is adorable and I love the bright yellow yarn! I would love to make some of these to sell at our town's annual Christmas fair in December. These are the type of items that sell really well. I am wondering if my daughters might be able to make these. Has anyone tried it with a 14 year old? She likes to knit on a loom and maybe this could even be adapted for that as well.

This is a great beginner project, it was easy to follow and gave great instruction. I was able to work up several of these for co-workers who thought it was so cute. I am going to make several more for my home for company to use when they come over and have coffee.

This cute little crochet cozy is a great project for a brand new crocheter like me. This would be super cute to put on a reusable travel mug as a gift for a coffee lover.

Here is another great project that is easy to crochet up quickly and can be used for presents for teachers, postal worker, librarian, or paper delivery person. These would also go fit great as stocking stuffers. I think I am also going to make some of these with the kids names on them. That way they will feel special when we go out for coffee, they can get their hot chocolate, and they can be like the grownups.

Since this is so easy to make I have decided to make up a bunch of them and keep some in the glove box of my car. They are not just good for hot coffee but for the hot chocolate that I get the grandkids and also when a cup is too cold for their little hands.

This is so cute! thank you.
