Crochet the Berry Christmas Cup Cozy with the Free Pattern

Crochet a mug cozy that’s filled with texture. Warm and comforting for those cold mornings, this crochet cup cozy will delight with it’s texture.

The free crochet cozy pattern uses just scraps of leftover yarn. The Berry Christmas Cup Cozy is the perfect way to gift a card-with a handmade touch.

Small and fast this little mug cozy doesn’t take much time or yarn. I love a good scrap yarn project.

The Berry Christmas Cup Cozy pattern uses the uneven berry stitch, which gives a lot of bang for your buck. I love the texture on this one.

I’d love to be able to gift everyone in our lives with some handmade squishiness, but time is always a factor. These little crochet cozies were a great solution for this busy time of year.

I so dislike just giving gift cards. It feels so impersonal, especially as a maker. It is so much more satisfying to whip up a little love and gift them together.

Once I crocheted the Berry Christmas Cup Cozy, I knew I needed some printables to make these little projects even more giftable.

I created pdf printables for an iced coffee cup cozy, a to go coffee cozy and mug cozy that can be found in my Etsy shop.

  1. Ch 1 counts as a slip st and you will work into it on the next row.
  2. The ch 1 used to close the berry st does not count as a st. So you will need to skip it so as not to increase your st counts.
  3. To simplify keeping track of stitches, I’ve included the ch 1 used to close the berry st in the stitch count, but remember not to work into them.
  4. Stitch multiple is 2.
  5. Finished length is 8.5” long, without sc edging.


3.5 sc x 4 rows sc = 1”
