Mug Cozy Free Crochet Pattern
In my last coffee cozy post I mentioned that I had another cozy that I used for mugs at home, so I figured that I may as well post the pattern for that one now. This cozy is not stitched together so that I can button it through the handle on my coffee mug. Every person who crochets can agree that we all have a stash of our leftover yarn. Some bits are just too small to work into a project and eventually get tossed away. There are other odds and ends that are exceptions because they are just too nice to not use in something and we CAN’T just get rid of them. Making these little projects are so quick and simple. The best part is that they are great opportunities to use up these odds and ends. This mug cozy free crochet pattern uses 2 different colours because I needed to use up both pieces of leftovers. I don’t mention switching colours in this pattern, but you can switch up any time, as many times as you like.
**Please feel free to use these patterns as much as you like, but please always refer back to this post to share the pattern so that we can continue to post them for free!
- Side f Hook
- 1 ball of yarn – or a few left over balls
- ch = chain
- st = stitch
- sc = single crochet
- sl st = slip stitch
Row 1: Ch 13. Work a sc into the second st from your hook. Sc into each st for the row for a total of 12 st. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2- 35: Beginning with the first st, sc into each st for the whole row for a total of 12 st. Ch 1, turn
Row 36: This is where you will begin decreasing your stitches to form the point. *Work 1 sc into the first st. Decrease in your next st by gathering your yarn through the next 2 st, yarn over, then pull through like a sc.* Repeat this for the entire row for a total of 9 st. Ch 1, turn
Row 37: *Work 1 sc into the first st. Decrease in the next st by working 1 sc into the next 2 st.* Repeat for entire row for a total of 7 st. Ch 1, turn
Row 38: *Work 1 sc into the first st. Decrease in the next st by working 1 sc into the next 2 st.* Repeat for entire row for a total of 5 st. Ch 1, turn
Row 39: Work 1 sc into the first st. *Decrease in the next st by working in 1 sc into the next st.* Repeat * for next st. Work 1 sc into the last st for a total of 4 st. Ch 1 and turn to the outside to begin the border.
Sc into the end of each row for a total 39 sc down the side of the cozy. At the corner, ch 1, turn then sc into the same corner st as your first st for the bottom of the border. Work 1 sc into each st along the bottom. At the corner, ch 1 and turn to begin the border along the other side. Work 1 sc into the end of each row along the whole side for a total of 39 st. When you get back to the top, ch 4 and connect the ch to the other side of the top row to form a loop. See the picture below:
Now you can attach your button to the center of the opposite end of the cozy. Make sure this is securely attached. Work in any loose ends of yarn and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy your mug cozy free crochet pattern! There are so many neat ways to make these, I’m positive I’ll be making more in the near future and I will be sure to post those patterns too! Let me know if you have any questions!
