NIN Coffee Cozy

Cup Cozys seem to be the trend right not so I figured "Why not?" Easy Yule Gift hehe. I made this for my husband but gave it to him early. I will probably make him a different one for Yule ;) This is for an over sized cup so it is big. I am going to make a smaller one soon. The hard thing is cups are all different sizes so it is hard to make a universal pattern. I didn't make it with the row going over the top of the handle because I don't like the feel of yarn on my lips when I am drinking coffee LOL

NIN coffee Cozy
By: AprilDraven
for personal use only
Hook Size: 3.25MM
Yarn: regular 4 ply worsted yarn

abbreviation meanings:
sc: single crochet
ss: slip stitch
sk: skip
FO: Fasten Off

With a magic circle ch 1
Rnd 1: Work 8 sc in circle
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc (16)
Rnd 3: *Sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep from * to * around (24)
Rnd 4: *Sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep from * to * around (32)
Rnd 5: *Sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep from * to * around (40)
*If you have a smaller cup stop after this rnd and go to rnd 8, You want it to be a tight fit so it doesn't slide off when you pick up the cup*
Rnd 6: *Sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep from * to * around (48)
Rnd 7: *Sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep from * to * around (56)
Rnd 8-10: Sc in each sc around (3 rounds)
at the end of the last round ss 1, ch 1, turn
Row 1: 15 sc, start white on pattern, when you get to the end of this row, ch 1 and turn.

*NOTE: If you want to put something else on it instead take the number of stitches wide it is and subtract that from the total amount you have. Then divide that number by 2. sc that number then start the pattern. That should center your image.*

Row 2-14: sc in each sc continuing pattern. At the end of each row ch 1, turn.

sc 4 down side, ch 1 turn (repeat 3 more times)

1 sc, ch 2, sk 2, 1 sc, ch 1 turn (this forms hole for button)

dec 2, ch 1, turn

dec 1, Fo

attach trim color and sc around border all the way around, *when you get to the tip of the strap put 3 stitches in the tip*

sew button on where it will be really tight. You don't want it to slide off when you pick it up to take a drink ;)

MeanSarah: on a plus side this is a smaller project so you might be able to do it behind his back...*wishful thinking*
