Crochet a coffee cozy cup sleeve with beautiful texture using this free crochet pattern.
“How do you take your coffee? Seriously. Very Seriously.”-Momprenuers
I’m pretty sure my coffee needs a hug, so it knows how much I love it. <3
I knew I wanted to continue with the Kelsi Collection, but what to tackle next? Then I thought, “Who doesn’t want a cute crochet coffee cozy to match their headband or purse?” 😀
I was having so much fun on this new adventure of designing patterns. I had three designs under my belt and about 1,257 more ideas waiting to materialize from my brain! The only dilemma was choosing which one to work up next!
I knew that I wanted to expand the Kelsi Collection. By this time, the texture of this ribbed stitching had me mesmerized. I had to design ALL THE THINGS with this stitch pattern! Do you ever get obsessed with a certain stitch? or maybe even a certain color way? For me, it was this diagonal ribbing. The first two patterns in the series had been so well-received that I knew there should be more designs created with this texture.
As I was working on a Kelsi Clutch, my coffee cup caught the corner of my eye, and it was almost begging for a hug! The amount of SQUISH that this crochet coffee cozy adds to my cup is just amazing, as if I needed more of a reason to grab a cup of coffee. Now, the best part of waking up…
…is this cozy on my cup!
Skill Level – Advanced Beginner
- CH – Chain
- SC – Single crochet
- SC2tog – Single crochet two stitches together
- BLO – Back loop only
- Sl St – Slip stitch
- Gauge: 2 ½ = 11 sc / 10 rows (worked in BLO)
- Finished cozy dimensions: 9” in circumference, 3” in width
- Cozy is worked back and forth in rows as one flat piece and seamed together when finished.
- The entire cozy is worked in BLO.
- Beginning chains DO NOT count as a stitch.
- Repeat rows consist of a decrease at the beginning of each row and an increase at the end of each row or vice versa in order to maintain a diagonal edge as the piece gets longer. The decreases and increases are indicated in red.
- I chose NOT to SC evenly around the entire outside edge as a design preference, but you do you! If you want a SC trim around the whole piece, add that step in before tying off.
- Be sure to check out the other items in the Kelsi Collection including The Kelsi Headband and The Kelsi Scarf!

Before tying off, Ch 1, SC through both loops evenly around entire edge, Sl St to beginning SC to join.
Tie off, leaving a long tail for sewing.
Sew the ends together with approximately 1 inch of overlap and lining up the ridges from the rows. I chose to sew the top and bottom points down and the underneath edge, but I did NOT sew the top edge down. (see image below)
Optional: Sew one decorative button near the top of the cozy where the edge comes to a point.
Weave in ends.
