I wrote a crochet cup cozy pattern as part of the gifts for the participants in the 2018 Toronto Yarn Hop, which is a fundraiser for Sistering, a local drop-in and support centre for women who are homeless or precariously housed. If you can’t physically come to the Yarn Hop, you can still join us! You can donate to Sistering through this Yarn Hop link, and I will send you the pattern.

You can donate any amount, and you don’t have to let me know how much you donated or send me any proof, I trust that we all want to make a difference in someone’s life when we have the opportunity to. Simply send me an email at letting me know that you have donated, and I will send you a pdf file of the pattern in reply :)

The cup cozy uses a small amount of DK yarn and 4 mm hook. It has a dense, textured fabric that will keep your fingers safe from hot beverages. If you’re not into cats, simply omit the last row and the embroidery, and you’ll have a simple yet not-so-plain cup cozy to show off a beautiful yarn. Great for using up scraps!
