Danyel Pink recently closed her crochet website (Danyel Pink Designs) and retired from the world of crochet. Oombawka Design purchased the full rights to this pattern, which means now I can share it with you.

I’m happy to be able to include the Carousel coffee cup cozy with my other free patterns on the Oombawka Design Crochet blog.

If you, or someone you know, is retiring and closing their crochet blog, please feel free to reach out to arrange for your patterns to be included at Oombawka Design too!

Notes:

  • Cozy is crocheted from the top down.
  • The initial ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  • To hide the seam, change colors at the ch1 of each round.
  • Do not cut the yarn at each color change. Instead, carry the unused yarn inside the cozy and fasten off at the end.
  • Crochet snugly. The warmth and moisture of the coffee cup will make the cozy expand.

Proceed to finishing instructions.

Finishing Instructions

  • Weave in your ends securely.

Other Suggestions

  • Other yarns that will work well: Lion Brand Cotton, Red Heart Creme de la Creme, Bernat Handicrafter, Lily Sugar n Cream
  • If possible, I recommend putting the cozy onto the cup before filling it, just to be safe.
  • Cotton cozies are microwave-safe. Do not microwave acrylic cozies, or a cozy embellished with buttons, etc.
  • Use a different color for each of the color change rounds. Use up all those scraps!
  • If you want your cozy to be a little taller, work an additional round of SC at Round 2 and Round 15.
  • Embellish your cozy with buttons, patches, or appliqués to make it unique!
