Introducing the Mahogany Cup Cozy Crochet Pattern: a quick and easy way to add a touch of charm to your favorite cups. Designed with simplicity in mind, it’s ideal for crocheters of any skill level.

When I’m in need of a speedy gift for a friend who’s tough to shop for, my go-to gift is a coffee cup dressed in a handmade crochet sleeve with a box of coffee beans. It’s a simple and enjoyable project that makes for a thoughtful present. Using just leftover yarn, I can whip up a stylish cup cozy in no time.

I chose variegated yarn to let the colors blend naturally, resulting in a unique and visually appealing result. However, if you prefer, you can always select your favorite colors or opt for a solid color instead.

I also chose a bulky yarn that I had on hand for this cup cozy. Not only does it offer a delightful texture and feel, but it also ensures the project comes together quickly. Nonetheless, feel free to use your preferred weight of yarn; simply remember to adjust your foundation stitch accordingly for the optimal fit.

The gorgeous variegated yarn I selected was enough to create a fantastic visual effect and give the cozy a trendy look. That’s why I decided to ago for a simple yet elegant stitch: the half double crochet (HDC) stitch.

As a coffee lover myself, I chose a large cup for this project. However, don’t worry if you prefer a different size cup or yarn weight—I’ll walk you through how to adjust the pattern to fit any size cup or yarn weight you prefer.

But before you proceed, I invite you to check out my Peppermint Cup Cozy pattern—a delightful cup cozy that’s perfect for Christmas gifting.

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is written in US terms.
  • The skill level is easy
  • The pattern is designed for a 19 oz cup, but for different cup sizes or yarn weights, simply adjust your foundation chain to fit snugly around the bottom of the cup. Then, crochet to the desired height. Easy peasy!
  • For a perfect fit, especially if your cup is narrower at the bottom and wider at the top, here’s a tip: crochet the first 4 rounds with a slightly smaller size hook. After that, continue the rest of the pattern with your main crochet hook. This adjustment ensures that your cup cozy will snugly hug the shape of your cup from top to bottom.

Special stitches

Half double crochet stitch:

Like other stitches, the half double stitch has two loops at the top. But if you take a closer look, there’s a hidden loop behind these two, named the “third loop.” To work into it, simply turn your work slightly and insert your hook under this loop. For a visual demonstration, watch the video linked here.
