Crochet Heart Coffee Cozy

Crochet H and E hooks and worsted weight yarn are needed.

Chain 25. Check to make sure this chain fits snuggly around your take-out cup. We all tend to crochet a bit differently. Slipstitch in first chain to make a ring.

Row 1: Single crochet in each chain all the way around, join to first single crochet with slip stitch to complete the row.

Rows 3-4: Chain 3, double crochet all the way around, slip stitch in top of chain three to finish row.

Row 5: Single crochet all the way around in each double crochet, slip stitch in first single crochet to finish row. Fasten off and weave in the ends.

To embellish the front I added a crochet heart applique. You will find the crochet heart pattern here. crochet heart applique

Stitch the heart on with needle and regular all-purpose thread.

  2. With havin so much content and articles do you
    ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog
    has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization.
    Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d truly appreciate it.

  3. I made two wraps before I figured out row 2 was missing from the instructions. I kept wondering why the heart was so big. I’m assuming it’s another dc? When you’re done, do you sew it together with thread or is there a crochet technique? I know how to crochet blankets and scarves and how to simply knot it off when done but I’m trying to branch out.

    • Found a Youtube video for the sleeve. Any tips on what I’m doing wrong that I end up with gaps where I’m slip stitching the rows together? Am I simply stitching to far away? Thanks.

    • Nichole says:

      I just made one of these, and noticed that the pattern should read:

      Row 1 (after the row of chains, which I did 30 instead of 25) is the row of single crochet

      Rows 2-5 are double crochets. It looks like there are 4 rows of DC in the picture

      Row 6 is a row of single crochet

      Otherwise, the sleeve is way too short, the heart winds up bigger than the sleeve, and it looks like a coffee bracelet rather than a cozy :-)

      I realize I’m posting a tad late in the game, here, but hope this helps!
