The Woodland Crochet Cup Cozy is really fun, fast and easy to make.
If you or someone you love – loves coffee, tea or any other beverage making this crochet cup cozy pattern is a must. Made from super bulky yarn it is one of the fastest cozies to make out there!
My favorite thing on the weekend is getting up early and having coffee with my husband Steve. It has been tradition for years and the boys know this our mom and dad time. One of these mornings that Steve pulled out an old worn out crochet cup cozy that I had made him years before.
I was surprised that he still had it – and that it had been used so much! He told me that he used it every day on the way to work because actually keeps his coffee warmer. I don’t know why I was actually surprised by that – after all, cozy is warm right? I decided it was time replace his rather feminine cup cozy with something a little thicker and more masculine.
That’s when I designed this Woodland crocheted cup cozy. I decided to make this one with buttons so it can be used for a mug as well. Steve is very particular about his mug handle, it needs to be big enough that he can fit two fingers through the handle in order to hold his coffee. So this one wraps around nicely and does up with two buttons accommodating any cup size. (Just make shorter or longer as needed) 🙂
I made the Woodland cup cozy from some leftover scraps of Lion’s Brand WoolEase I had in two different colors. That wasn’t in my initial plan but I ran out of the charcoal so finished it off with some gray. In the end I managed to dig out some old buttons that went pretty well too. 🙂
I was really happy with how it turned out using the two different colored yarns and I’ve actually continued to make this pattern this way ever since. I hope that when you see this, you think of someone special in your life that you can make it for. I am about to make up some for a Christmas party/Dinner my best friend has been having for our group of friends for over 25 years now. Anyways, I would love to hear and see what you made from this beautiful textured crochet cozy pattern. Oh and if you love this and want to make a matching crochet hat I have a pattern for that too!
