Coffee Cozy








Tomorrow night a bunch of us girls are getting together for a learn to crochet + wine night. Should be a lot of fun! I was trying to find an easy beginner pattern to use, and became very frustrated after looking and looking and coming up with ......nothing! So I decided to write my own pattern. I made these coffee sleeves last year and I used mine every time I went to Starbucks or DD. They are much nicer than the disposable ones they give you, and they cut back on waste, AND they are super easy to make. I usually like to do my sleeves I use with ribbing but since this is a starter pattern I figured the easiestway to do it would be a simple easy sleeve done in single crochet. So here it is....enjoy!!


Materials needed
Size H / 5 mm crochet hook
worsted weight yarn, in any 2 colors
A being the main color (mine was a pink)
and B being the accent color ( I used cream)
yarn darner
3 buttons
Needle and thread

Chain 12
Rnd 1 SC in 2nd ch from hook and all the way a
cross chain 1 turn - 11 stitches
Rnd 2 SC all the way across
Rnds 3-36 repeat round 2 break off A

Round 19 attach B ch 1 sc across do not turn



sc all the way around entire coffee sleeve adding an extra sc in each corner

with right side together and forming a ring, slip stitch the two ends together break off and weave in all ends





(I like the way the raised edge of the slip stitch looks on the outside of the sleeve, if you prefer the flat side as your "right side" just sew the buttons on the flat side)

sew your buttons vertically near your B color

voila!

  1. I can't wait to try this!! And I think the headband pattern I have just calls for single crochet around the outside of it too...so after doing the border on the coffee cozy, I'm hoping I'll be good to go on my headband as well!! :) So excited!

  2. Single Crochet is super easy!! You will get it in no time. Is the headband pattern knit and crochet?

    I bet people might even finish them while we're hanging out.
