Personally I run to coffee in the mornings but come evening I usually reaching for a steaming cup of Earl Grey Tea.
I designed this simple crochet cup cozy to fit my ceramic mug. It provides great insulation and grip.
This crochet cup cozy is great for both the beginner and more advanced crocheter alike. It is worked using simple stitches in continuous rounds. The simple stripe of colour gives it a classic look.
For this crochet pattern your are going to need a little bit of a worsted/medium weight cotton yarn. I am using the Bernat Handicrafter Cotton by Yarnspirations.
You will also need a 5 mm crochet hook. I will be using a wooden streamline one by Furls Crochet.
Finally you will also need a yarn needle and scissors for finishing off, and a stitch marker. As this pattern is worked in continuous rounds (meaning you will not join at the end of each round), you will need something to mark the first stitch so that it does not get lost.
Ad free PDF copies are also available for this crochet pattern. You can purchase a PDF from either my Etsy or Ravelry Shop:
