I absolutely love this cup cozy because it allows me to whip up a lovely gift in no time, tailored perfectly to any occasion. I enjoy experimenting with colors to suit the theme of the event. Additionally, I often include some high-quality coffee grounds or a Starbucks gift card to enhance the gift. What’s even better is that this project requires only a small amount of yarn, making it a great way to tidy up my stash. It’s an ideal gift hard for teachers, coaches, and office friends.

In this blog, you’ll find all the information you need to craft this beautiful cup cozy, including the required materials and detailed, step-by-step instructions. But before we dive into it, I invite you to explore my Kitchen Essential patterns and Holiday patterns.

Crafting Your Perfect Gala Cup Cozy

While the Gala Cup Cozy looks great in a solid color, experimenting with different color combinations that resonate with you or match your holiday colors is a fantastic idea. Whether it’s Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, or any other special occasion, this pattern allows you to create a cup cozy that reflects your personal style and holiday spirit.

Moreover, cups and mugs come in various sizes, and so should your cup cozy! The pattern includes instructions to adapt the size to fit different cups perfectly. Whether you’re crafting for a standard coffee mug or a larger travel cup, your Gala Cup Cozy will be a snug fit.

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is written in US Terms.
  • The skill level is intermediate.
  • For this pattern, you can use a #4 worsted weight yarn of your choice, whether it’s cotton, cotton blend, or acrylic yarns. Before you start crocheting the cup cozy, make sure to try your foundation chain for fit (details further in the pattern) or swatch your gauge as other worsted weight yarns may change the final measurement of the pattern. I used some mercerized cotton yarn I had in my stash from different brands.
  • This pattern is designed for a 19 oz cup. However, for cups of different sizes, you can adjust the pattern accordingly. Start by making a foundation chain that is a multiple of 2 and equal to the circumference of your cup. Then, follow the pattern as usual and adjust the height accordingly to fit your cup perfectly.
  • To change color, simply chain 1 with the new color after you join the round with a slip stitch, drop the old color, and continue crocheting with the new yarn.
  • For neat results, crochet over the non-working yarn in the first stitch of the round to carry them upward and avoid them from being loose on the inside.
