Quick and Easy Crocheted Coffee Cup Cozey

The quick and easy coffee cup cozey is made with 9 rounds of crochet. The pattern begins at the bottom of the cup with 4 rows of dc, then to allow for the widening of the coffee cup and allowing for a firm fit, the next row is increased with 5 extra st's for the widening and uses the hdc stitch for firmness. The most popular size coffee cup used is a medium size cup, this crocheted cup cozey pattern is a medium size.

Once we have mastered the easy coffee cup cozey, we can decorate the cozey in many ways. Crochet shapes, buttons, felt etc can all be used. If it helps you, do a crochet coffee cup cozey image search for inspiration. I like to use crochet appliqués too. We can get real fancy and add a decorative crochet edge, or keep it simple and play around with color combinations.
