Crochet Coffee Cup Cozy: the inspiration

I have been inspired to make a coffee cup cozy for a long time now! It is fun, and creates a lovely crochet gift for a loved one. A lot of people are now using a reusable take away coffee cup around the world, instead of a disposable one. This has created the need for reusable and washable cup cozies. This is a one size fits most coffee cups, and can be tailored and customized for men and women. Indeed, if you are crocheting this coffee cup cozy for a man, you can easily skip the frilly shell stitch edging. This cup cozy will instantly become more masculine!

This is a super easy project!

You can also switch up the colors with this project. The best part is, you can make it in a lot of different shades. You can then have a variety of cup cozies available every time you need one!

Crochet Coffee Cup Cozy: the yarn

This project uses basic and good quality 100% acrylic yarn for ease of use. Indeed, in this type of project, you need the yarn to be solid and easily washable. I used Scheepjes Colour Crafter DK yarn in shade 1722 Alphen for one of my cup cozies. For the second one I created, I used Stylecraft Special DK in shade Fiesta, one of my favorite yarns and shades. I love how these colors just pop! These are both DK/light 3 yarns, and you can substitute these with any of your preferred yarns and brands.

As I previously said, this crochet project is perfect for everyone. If you want to make this cup cozy more masculine, or simply less feminine, you can just skip the frilly shell stitch edging. You will then have a basic and easy to transport cup cozy.

The shell stitch edging however does add a little je ne sais quoi which makes this project special. It elevates the look and creates a cute and feminine vibe. I know I love it!

Let me know what you think of this project. A crochet cup cozy has been on my “to do” list for a long time, and I am very pleased with how it’s turned out. I will be making plenty more different cup cozies in the future, so watch this space!
