Red Bow Cup Cozy (Free Crochet Pattern)

It’s that time of year again.  Time to sip on piping hot cocoa, tea or coffee.I am sharing a quick and easy crocheted cup cozy pattern so that you don’t burn your hands for the next four months.  This is also a perfect project for beginners.crochet-cup-cozy-free-pattern
Red Bow Cup Cozy Pattern
I used Caron Simply Soft Yarn, a 5 mm (H) crochet hook and a yarn needle.The pattern below will fit the standard medium size disposable coffee cup.  If you are making this to fit a reusable or a different sized cup, measure your chain around the desired cup size and add or remove chain stitches as needed.Chain 32.Connect the end and the first chain with a slip stitch.

Double crochet (dc) in each stitch around for the next 8 rounds.

Fasten off  - leave a 6-8 inch tail.

You should now have a plain cup cozy.  You can leave it as it is, add a button or some type of applique.  If you want a Bow Cup Cozy follow the instructions below.


Choose the spot for the center of the bow and pinch it (see above photo).Using the yarn tail and a yarn needle, sew through the pinched area a few times to secure.  Fasten off, trim and weave in yarn tail.

    Thank you! I am new to crochet. This looks like a very easy pattern. Unfortunately, I do not know how to double crochet. I can’t seem to find a youtube video or a blog that will help me understand. Could you please do a blog article on that! I would really be thankful!
    P.S. If you do, my first project will be your watermelon water bottle holder! It looks so cute!
