All About Ami an awesome blog with lots of cool ideas. I made the cozy to her instructions and I loved it! It's worth trying if you like this style because it is easy to do and looks great.
After making one of this style, I realized that it does have a few drawbacks. It will really only fit the mug size and style you make it for. I wanted to come up with a pattern of my own that would fit any mug I wanted to put it on, (even the tall, no-handle style you get at gas stations or coffee shops) and still had a nice classy look.
So after a little planning and experimenting, I ended up with something that looks like this:
This cozy looks awesome and works awesomely on any style and size of coffee mug!
Now for the pattern!
Awesome Coffee Mug Cozy:
You will need:
Cotton yarn in the color(s) of your choice
Size H crochet hook
Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in every ch across.
Ch 1, turn and sc in first sc of previous row, ch 8 and sc in last sc of previous row.
Ch 1, single crochet in first sc and in top loop of each ch in the ch 8 from the previous row, sc in last sc of previous row.
*Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across*
Repeat from * to * 24 more times.
Ch 1, sc in 2nd sc space (skipping the first sc) sc across skipping the 2nd to last sc and sc in last sc of previous row. (This is a decrease row.)
Do another decrease row.
*Ch 1 sc in each sc across.*
Repeat from * to * 10 more times.
Do 2 decrease rows.
Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc from previous row, ch 5, sc in last sc of previous row.
Sl st in same sc. ( to slip stitch, you work it just like a sc, instead of keeping the second loop on the hook, you pull it through the first.)
Ch 1, single crochet around the entire outside of the cozy with 6sc in the ch 5 loop. Join with a sl st, cut yarn, and use a yarn needle to hide the ends.
Attach your first button about 2" from the inside of the handle hole. Attach the other two buttons about 1" apart along the cozy. Use your yarn needle to hide the ends and you're done!
Enjoy your awesome coffee mug cozy.
