By making the Huntsman Crochet Coffee Cozy Pattern you will ensure that you never burn your hand on a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate again!
Doesn’t this sound perfect for little ones as well? And, not so little ones! My son Christian always has a cozy in his pocket secretly I think in the hopes that he will need it for a drive by hot chocolate 😉
A little birdie (my hubby) also told me that it keeps your drink warmer as well! I have heard them called mug warmers – perhaps I should do a test! Should I?
One of my favourite things about the Huntsman crochet cup sleeve is that it actually looks knit!
Now, I can knit no problem I’m actually pretty good at it. Well… until I need to fix it – then I am at a total loss and heading over to moms – the master knitter to have her help me fix.
So… well the question becomes does that actually make me a bad knitter? Hmmm…. yes a good knitter just not a good fixer!
How do you crochet a coffee sleeve or mug warmer?
There are a few different styles of coffee sleeves. This one is great for travel mugs or take aways. But, it can also be adapted for mugs with handles by adding some loops and buttons. So if you want one for both – give it a go!
1. Our starting chain will be the height of the sleeve. So this is where you will want to add or deduct stitches for a taller or shorter sleeve.
2. Then we will be working rows until the desired length of the cozy is made. The length being what will go around the cup.
3. The second last step will be sewing the shortest ends together to form the tube. It is also at this step you can add buttons and loops so it can be used with a mug with a handle.
4. The last step is adding a round of slip stitches on the top of the cozy. For a nice pretty clean finish. (This step is totally optional – leave it out if you love the natural scallop looking edge)

This pattern was written using worsted weight yarn. The beautiful thing about this design though is that it works up perfectly in pretty much any yarn.
If you go larger than bulky yarn or any smaller than worsted weight yarn the size will change. So in that case I recommend crocheting your starting chain until it is 4 inches tall and adding rows till it is approximately 9 inches long.
REMEMBER – You will need to change your hook size accordingly. Check on the wrapper of yarn for recommendation.
