Tunisian Crochet Coffee Cozy: Free Pattern by Vickie Howell

MATERIALS

Small amounts of bulky yarn, in colors: A & B. (I used Vickie Howell for Mad | Tosh HOME in colors: Heart Hands and Pinky Swear)

US M Knitter’s Pride Ginger Tunisian Crochet Hook

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

4″/10 cm tall x approx. 10″/25 cm circumference (slightly stretched)

 

GAUGE

Pro Tip: Want to use a lighter weight yarn? No problem. Simply switch to a smaller hook size and crochet a chain that’s about 1″/2.5 cm shorter than your cup’s circumference, and in multiples of 2. From there, follow the pattern as is!
