Warm and Toasty – Crochet Mug Cozies

by | Crochet

UPDATE: You can purchase the pattern here, or try this free pattern of my own to make a basketweave cup cozy!


I’ve been crocheting almost every night, and I finally have some pictures to show what I’ve been up to – mug cozies!

(Here’s my “mug cozy turkey”, cause you know, Thanksgiving is comin’ up!)

I don’t drink name brand coffees in the disposable cups (I don’t drink coffee at all), so the little coffee cup cozies are not much use for me, but mug cozies are great!  I do drink tea, and hot chocolate and even soup in ceramic mugs, and I hate having to hold the mug only by the handle, don’t you?  And that ceramic sure gets hot in a hurry!

These mug cozies are cute and colorful and pretty easy to work up.  I used a pattern from Ollies Boutique on Ravelry; her directions are easy to understand and the cozies have a great nubby texture to them.  The cozies are worked up in Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarn, and boy did I go a little hog wild when Michaels had a yarn sale.  I got the personalized buttons from WearhouseIndustries, and altered the mug cozy pattern slightly in order to crochet the buttons directly into the piece instead of adding it at the end.

I’m making a bunch of these for my 2nd craft fair coming up (see my first one here), so I hope they sell!  If not, they’ll be going up in my Etsy shop.  I think they’re great for stuffing some stockings or for teacher’s gifts, or maybe I’ll just keep some for myself!

Do you use mug cozies?  What are your favorite colors, or, which colors should I make more of?
