CROCHET PATTERN - Carousel Coffee Cozy

These coffee cozies are perfect for to-go cups from your favorite coffee shop! They work well on icy cold pint glasses and pints of ice cream, too!

Materials
G/6 (4.0 mm) crochet hook, yarn needle, scissors

Yarn
4 small amounts of worsted weight cotton
Samples shown using “Lily Sugar N Cream”.

Size
One Size fits most to-go cups, travel mugs, and pint glasses.
Finished size = 4.75” wide x 3.5” tall

Gauge
7 SC and 8 Rows = 2”

Difficulty
Easy

Stitch Guide  
MC - Main Color, CA/CB/CC - Color A/Color B/Color C, CH - chain, SC - single crochet, SK - skip, SL ST - slip stitch, ST - stitch

Special Stitch
LSC - long SC (spike) = SC over the CH-1 space into the ST of the previous round

Notes
  1. Cozy is worked from the top down.
  2. To help hide the seam, change colors at the CH-1 of each round.
  3. Do not cut the yarn at each color change. Instead, carry the unused yarns inside the cozy and fasten off at the end.
  4. Crochet snugly.  The warmth and moisture of the coffee cup will make the cozy expand.

Other Suggestions
  • Other yarns that will work well:  Lion Brand Cotton, Red Heart Creme de la Creme, Bernat Handicrafter
  • If possible, I recommend putting the cozy onto the cup before filling it, just to be safe.  
  • Cotton cozies are microwave-safe.  Do not microwave acrylic cozies, or a cozy embellished with buttons, etc.
  • Use a different color for each of the color change rounds.  Use up all those scraps!
  • If you want your cozy to be a little taller, work an additional round of SC at Round 2 and Round 15.
  • Embellish your cozy with buttons, patches, or appliqu├ęs to make it unique!
