Easy Mother’s day Gift Crochet Coffee Cozy Patterns

Mother’s day is coming fast! I think that Mother’s and Father’s day celebration is such a wonderful thing, because we have time(with our crazy busy lives) and opportunity to thank our amazing parents, without whom there would be no us. Did you prepare a gift already? If no, then there is no better present than the one you made with your hands, yarn and hook, right? Going straight to the point, Mother’s day crochet gift doesn’t have to be very sophisticated or complex. It can be something as lovely and small as a crochet coffee cozy made with love and your beautiful Mother in mind. If you are just starting out with crocheting, I created two coffee cozy crochet patterns for beginners that are easy to follow and make a great finished product. You can get a pattern in our Etsy store here.

As you might discover, our patterns have names. I make these patterns with a particular kind of person in mind. And I think that naming products give them a bit of personality as well. First pattern is called Vanessa. This crochet cup sleeve is in red color and has a strong, as it’s name, design looking like a flame of fire.

Second one is called Vivian. Compared to the first design, it’s more feminine, soft and relaxed.

If your mother loves coffee then make her these two special gifts! And if you have any questions while making them, feel free to message me on Etsy or leave a comment here. Dear friend, now I’m in the process of making an easy crochet dishcloth Mother’s day gift pattern as well, so if a coffee cozy is not what you’re looking for you Mom, then come back to Cozy City blog next week to check our brand new dishcloth pattern or better yet, sign up for our newsletter to get a word about new post here right in your email!


Venice Coffee Cup Cozy Pattern.

I love coffee, who doesn’t? It always feels comfy to enjoy weekends holding a cup of fresh americano, latter or cappuchino. I’m also really passionate about recycling. Here, in South Korea people recycle bottles, cans, paper, plastic, everything you can think of. So, I believe we must help nature, even a little bit by making reusable kitchen ware including coffee mug cozies that is easy to put in your bag, beautiful and that you can use over and over again. More cozy patterns are available in my Etsy shop.

Size: cozy is 3″ tall and approximately  4″(9.5cm) wide. You can adjust it to your coffee mug by adding extra rows for length and extra stitches for width.

Materials:

  • 3.5mm (E/4) size crochet hook;
  • Phildar Cotton Laine Yarn in grey and pink colors (you can use any DK yarn);
  • Tapestry needle.

Terms (US): st- stitch; slst – slip stitch; sc- single crochet; hdc – half double crochet; dc – double crochet, petal (3 double crochet in 1 stitch).

Pattern: Cozy band

Round 1: ch34, connect your last ch to the first ch of round with slst. Be sure not to twist your whole ch.

Round 2: ch2(counts as hdc), hdc in next ch1 space, hdc all around. Finish with slst into the 2nd ch space of beginning ch2. 34 total (including beginning ch2)

Round 3-9: repeat round 2.

Round 10: ch1, sc in next st, *skip 1 st, 3 dc in next st, skip 1 st, sc in next st*. Repeat from * to * for 7 more times. You have 8 petals in total. Finish with slst into beginning ch1 space of this round. Cut and weave in the ends.

Heart: you can find heart pattern from Planet June website.

After you finish your heart, attach it to the center part of your coffee cup cozy with remaining thread yarn. And your beautiful coffee sleeve is ready. Enjoy!

Note: always make sure you fit Round 1 ch count to your paticular cup. Depending on yarn you use and size of your mug, you might need to increase or decrease number of chains. Pattern stays same. Make sure you count number of your sitches each round as you go, not to add unneccessary stitches. I prefer using cotton yarn (it’s soft, easy to wash and becomes softer with each wash), but it can be a bit expensive; other option is a mix of material (50% cotton, 50% acrylic or any other cheaper version).
