I’ve crocheted and used almost fifty different coffee cozies and other beverage sleeves over the years, and this simple version remains one of my favorite cup cozy designs to use in real life. This pattern includes my design tips for optimizing a cozy’s safety and usefulness. It’s one of my $1.99 picks for December.

This is simple, quick and easy crochet for a last-minute gift or for using up a leftover ball of yarn. Its toasty woolly goodness is especially satisfying on the coldest winter day, with a matching pair of Ugg® boots and a hot chocolate with marshmallows.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner. Alpine Cup Cozy was originally called “Tulip Coffee Cozy” and was one of the first crochet patterns I added to my own design line. I’ve updated the pattern name and pdf for winter 2012. It’s still one of the few at my website that is specifically designed for crocheters still getting the hang of crochet basics, and for inexperienced pattern readers.

I changed the name from Tulip to Alpine to reflect that it’s one of the coziest cozies (thermal, wintry) I’ve ever designed. The updated name also takes men into account: just use a darker, neutral color and leave off the tulip edging for a gender-neutral beverage sleeve.

I have written the pattern with few abbreviations, and provide International English equivalents for American measurements, yarn weights, and stitch terms. The UK & Australian equivalents are in brackets {}.

After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):

  • How to join in a ring and work in the round
  • An easy, pretty edging that will come in handy for other projects
  • The importance of a locking slip knot and a well-fitted cozy
