Crochet Coffee Mug Cozy Tutorial

Once I get up and get the kids ready for their breakfast, I like to get my hot tea ready. It used to be coffee and someday I will be drinking coffee again...oh how I miss it! But for now, this is a season that calls for hot tea. <3

My mug, one of my favorite ones, is lime green, which to me represents peace, calming, soothing. I got it a few years ago while I still lived in Michigan at a whole foods type of store.  

Thought it needed a bit of dressing up, plus I was in deep need to learn a new stitch. So put the two things together and resulted in a new mug cozy.  Today I am sharing with you how I made it, the free pattern and instructions on how I made mine. Hope you enjoy it and make your own too!  Remember to pin it to Pinterest so you can find later too.

Let's get started!


Yarn: Cotton Yarn - I Love This Cotton by Hobby Lobby in taupe color.
Hook: Size G Clover hook
Yarn needle


Start off by measuring your mug's circumference. Subtract 2-3 inches to allow your cozy to stretch and to fit snuggly on your mug.

My mug measured 10 in circumference.


This pattern uses the Even Moss Stitch. It gives great texture, it's very pleasant to the eye and works quickly.  Looks complex, but the instructions actually make it very easy to produce this stitch.  Have fun!

Estas instrucciones son para hacer el punto Arroz en crochet, otras veces llamado el punto Musgo Parejo.  Me encanta este punto porque tiene mucha textura, se ve bonito, y se puede completar rapidamente. A pesar de que el punto se ve complicado, la verdad es que es muy facil de hacer.  

Ch. 40 to fit a 10 in circumference mug
Row 1: Skip first ch, sl st into next ch, *hdc into next ch, sl st into next ch; rep from * to end, turn. 
Row 2: 1ch, skip first st, *sl st into next st, hdc into next st, rep from * ending with sl st into tch, turn.

Repeat row 2 for 6 rows. 


Cadeneta de 40 para que alcanze una circumferencia de 10 pulgadas (25.4 cm aprox). 
Fila 1: Salta la primera cadeneta, punto razo en la siguiente cadena, *media vareta en el punto siguiente, punto razo en la siguiente;* repite desde * hasta *.  Da vuelta tu trabajo. 
Fila 2: 1 cadeneta, salta el siguiente punto, *punto razo en el siguiente punto, media vareta en el punto siguiente,* repite desde * hasta *. Termina esta fila con un punto razo en la ultima cadeneta. Da vuelta tu trabajo. 

Repite la fila 2 por 6 filas mas. 

Now, choose one of your short sides and work a single crochet (Sc). Depending on how many rows, you did is how many stitches you'll get (x2). I had 12 sc in total. 

Escoge uno de los lados cortos y hace un punto bajo en cada punto. Dependiendo de cuantas filas hayas tejido, sera la cantidad de puntos que tendras (x2). Yo obtuve 12 puntos bajos en total. 

Repeat 3 rows of 1 sc in each stitch. Ch. 1 at the end and turn. 

Repite por 3 filas, haciendo un punto bajo en cada punto. Haz una cadeneta al final y gira tu trabajo.

Now you will be working on your buttonhole: 

Ahora comenzaras a hacer el ojal. 

Crochet 1 sc in each of 5 stitches, ch.3 (I did 5 to accommodate the size of my button). As you are chaining you are also skipping the 3 sc from the row below.  Count your 3 stitches and then SC (single crochet) on the rest of the row. 

Teje 1 punto bajo en cada uno de los 5 puntos, cadeneta de 3 (Hice esto para que me alcanzara el boton). A medida que vas haciendo tu cadeneta, te iras saltando esta misma cantidad de puntos de la fila anterior. Cuenta que hayas saltado 3 puntos bajos y luego continua haciendo puntos bajos en el resto de la fila. 

Last row: 1 sc on every stitch, including 1 sc in each chain stitch. 

Ultima fila: 1 punto bajo en cada punto, incluyendo 1 punto bajo en cada cadeneta. 

Sew button on opposite side. I went for a large red button I had in my stash from when my local Joann's had had a big sale on buttons.  

Cose un boton al lado opuesto. Yo escogi un punto grande y rojo que ya tenia en casa y me gusto mucho el look que le dio.  

Mira como quedo! Ahora teje uno tambien y muestrame como te quedo. :-) 

Look at my new pretty! Go ahead and make as many as you'd like! 

Happy Crocheting,

~ Fabi

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links. The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric : More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet , it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes. Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress. Related Projects that use the Crochet Fabric Fusion Technique:
