How to Crochet a Travel Cup Cozy Free Pattern

Learn how to crochet the Coffee Bean Travel Cup Cozy without putting your crochet hook down. This step by step tutorial shows you how to crochet a faux seam so that your cup cozy is joined into a sleeve as you crochet it.

I love how much texture is packed into this small crochet travel cup cozy pattern. The mini bean stitch really shines here. Quick and beautiful are both important when we consider crocheting all those handmade gifts.

The Coffee Bean Cup Cozy covers both those criteria. Plus this pattern works to use up lots of little bits of yarn you might have left over from larger projects.

Yarn

I used Crafter’s Secret, a #4 medium worsted weight yarn for the to go cozy pictured. You can use any medium weight yarn. I’ve been wanting to try stripes in this travel cup cozy, but haven’t gotten to it yet!

Stitch

The stitches used in the Coffee Bean Travel Cup Cozy are a mix of half double crochets and the mini bean stitch. I’ve linked up tutorials for these in the Stitches + Special Stitches sections.

Construction

This Coffee Bean To Go Cup Cozy is joined and turned after each round. This allows us to crochet the cozy into a sleeve without having to sew it together. It will also preserve the texture of the stitches.

Finished Dimensions

4″ wide when flat x 3″ tall, and fits a 9” travel to-go cup

Adjustment

To adjust height of cup cozy repeat Rows 4-7, or any combination of rows you like. Alternatively, you can leave off a row of hdc if you need a smaller version.

To adjust the width of cozy increase or decrease the number of stitches in twos, then add one more. You need an odd number of stitches.
