It’s Friday already? Alrighty then, time for another free crochet pattern as part of JJCrochet’s Free Pattern Friday.
I woke up this morning and was brainstorming what I could make and offer as a free crochet pattern for FPF. I wanted something quick for summer, something useful, something practical. Something people could make that would work crochet into their everyday routines. A couple months ago one of my good friends, C.J., suggested I made crochet coffee cozies. I instantly loved the idea, but hadn’t gotten around to crocheting up a prototype until today. So thank you, C.J. for your inspiration!
C.J.’s Crochet Coffee Cup Cozy
- Size E (3.5mm) crochet hook
- Size F (4.0mm) crochet hook
- Small amount Worsted Weight Yarn. I used Vanna’s Choice Solids.
With smaller hook (size E), Chain 25. Join with sl st to first chain.
Round 1: Using larger hook, Ch 2 (counts as first hdc now and throughout), hdc in each st around (25 st). Join to first hdc with sl st.
Round 2: Ch 2. *Ch 1, skip 1 st, 2 hdc in next st* Repeat around until beginning. Ch 1, 1 hdc in same last st. Join to first hdc with sl st.
Round 3: Ch 2. 1 hdc in first ch-1 space. *2 hdc in next ch-1* Repeat around until beginning. Join to first hdc with sl st. (Note: Do NOT ch-1 between each hdc cluster.)
Round 4: Ch 2, hdc in each st across (25 st).
Round 5: Repeat Round 2
Round 6: Repeat Round 3
Round 7: Using smaller hook, Ch 2, hdc in each st across (25 st).
Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Choose different colors for each round or alternate a striping pattern. Below is the color scheme for the two coffee cozies pictures:
- Round 1: Bright Coral
- Round 2: Gray
- Round 3: Purple
- Round 4: Bright Coral
- Round 5: Purple
- Round 6: Gray
- Round 7: Bright Coral
- Round 1: Olive Green
- Round 2: Grass Green
- Round 3: Grass Green
- Round 4: Olive Green
- Round 5: Grass Green
- Round 6: Grass Green
- Round 7: Olive Green
Experiment with your own colors to create your very own crochet coffee cozies to match your style. They’re reusable, easy to wash, and a greener alternative to paper covers. Happy crocheting!
