No more burned fingers, and no more cold coffee. Coffee cup cozies are such a good idea. I made up a few of these for my coffee connoisseur daughter. You can’t just have one.
They’re really quick and easy to make up and use tiny bits of yarn. I used Theresa Grant’s pattern on Ravelry. If you don’t know how to do a fpdc (front post double crochet) and a bpdc you will find a great tutorial here (fptr and bptr in English terminology). These were made up using a variety of different yarns, some blends and some acrylics. It’s best not to use 100% cotton, as it doesn’t have enough stretch. And my hook was 4mm.
These are perfect for little gifts or stocking fillers, and it’s always a good idea to keep a couple in your handbag. These particular ones are plain and simple, but they can be dressed up with ribbons, flowers, embroidery or any number of other embellishments. I’d also like to make a few of the kind you would use on a coffee mug. There are some fun patterns out there for those, and they can be used by tea lovers too.
