Coffee Mug Coffee Cozy

Hi Lovies! Is there anything more amazing than a coffee mug coffee cozy?!

Why didn’t I think of this before? The best way to accessorize coffee is obviously with more coffee!

This is a fairly quick project and would make an adorable gift with a bag of fresh coffee for your coffee-loving friends.

Fits your standard reusable Starbucks mug.

  • Size G Crochet Hook
  • Worsted weight yarn: mug color of your choice, black, and coffee color (mine is light brown because I like a little coffee with my creamer)
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch Markers (I use stitch markers on all of my projects to count rows)


ch– Chain

SC– Single Crochet

How simple is that?!

Coffee Mug Coffee Cozy Pattern:

Begin with your mug color, ch 36 or the amount that fits around your mug of choice.

Rows 1-12 : SC in each stitch across, ch 1, turn (35 stitches)

Row 13: in the back stitch only, SC in each stitch across, on the last stitch switch to brown, ch 1, turn (35 stitches)

Row 14: now in the back stitches of the row below the row we just completed (which are technically the front stitches of the previous row; row 12) SC in each stitch across. We will have crocheted a row into the front and back stitches of row 12. This gives your mug a lip and looks as if coffee is inside it!

  • Tie off with a short brown tail and a long mug color tail (pink for me).
  • Using your tapestry needle and black yarn, sew a cute face in the center! You’ll string a strand of black yarn onto your needle just like traditional needlework and stitch on the shape of the face. Feel free to give your cutie any face you’d like!
    • Make sure you keep the coffee on the inside!!!

  • Tie off with a long tail.
  • Using your tapestry needle and the tail, sew your handle on about an inch to the left of the face.

To join:

With the face and handle facing the inside, make a complete circle with your cozy. Using your tapestry needle, sew the ends together with the corresponding color of your mug and a stitch or two for the coffee. I usually go over the join twice to make sure it is secure.

Tie off and trim excess ends.

Flip right side out!
