Nothing says winter to me like warm sweaters, comforting throws, and hot cups of tea and cocoa. With this in mind, I want to share with you one way I help to make my own fall experience that much more special and that is by adding a DIY Crochet Coffee Cup Cozy to my favorite fall mug.
I originally got the idea for this post after seeing several staffers at my public library sporting their cozy clad cups on their desks and I knew that those cup covers would make a fun and frugal crochet project this fall.
These cozies are not only simple to make but they can also be customized. For my own cozies at home, I added a loop at the top and bottom of my cozies that helps to secure the cozies in place and to feel more secure in hand.
These cozies also make for great inexpensive, zero-waste holiday gifts. And the best part? As these cozies require around a half hour to crochet and require only a fifth of any given skein to create, chances are you’ll have several unused balls of yarn in your stash you could utilize to make several of these cozies this weekend at home.
After making yourself one, you’ll definitely want to make one for everyone on your gift giving list this year!
While making these cozies please keep the following terms in mind:
- HDC: Half Double Crochet
- Ch: Chain
- ST: Stitch
- SC: Single Crochet
Here’s how you can make your very own crochet cup cozy this season:
So, that’s it, folks. How easy was that? As always, be sure to pin the graphic above for quick reference when making your cozies at home, and remember, have fun!
Now I want to ask, do you have a go-to crochet pattern each winter season?I’d love to hear about your cold weather projects below!
