Berry Christmas Cup Cozy Pattern

Berry Christmas Cup Cozy Pattern

The Berry Christmas Cup Cozy is the perfect way to gift a card-with a handmade touch. Small and fast this little 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 cozies were a great solution for this 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!

  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. Stitch multiple is 2.
  4. Finished length is 8.5” long, without sc edging.

For a red Starbucks travel cup size 9” leave a long tail. Sew short ends together forming cup ring. Finish off. 

For a larger mug, size 10-11” sc around all four sides, placing sc, ch 1, sc in each corner.

For a mug with a handle, add a button so the button loop can fit through the handle. Sew the button on one end.

For the button loop, join yarn with a ss to the opposite end, chain 20 (or to necessary measurement), ss back to the cozy edge and finish off. You can find the printable travel cup here, and the mug printable here. I printed them on cardstock, paired with a gift card!
