Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm so excited to share my Baby Yoda Coffee Cozy Free Crochet Pattern! He is the cutest Star Wars themed mug companion and is a quick crochet project! This coffee cozy is also an excellent Star Wars Gift Idea!
This Baby Yoda Coffee Sleeve is comprised of the coffee sleeve base, head, ears and arms which are all then stitched together using a tapestry needle. The finished coffee cozy measures approximately 4" tall and 4.5" wide when lying flat. This pattern can be adjusted to fit the width of your mug of choice (see the coffee sleeve base pattern detail below for adjustment instructions).

I receive many questions regarding the specific yarn colors I use for my projects! Oftentimes, I use leftover colors in my yarn stash that I have lost the labels for or have acquired secondhand without labels, so I apologize if I cannot list them all each time! Below are the specific brands/colors I do know for this particular pattern!
Cream (Sorry, I'm not sure!)
This pattern is written in US crochet terminology.
SC - Single Crochet
SC dec - Single Crochet Decrease
* - Repeat sequence until the end of the round
Mug Size Adjustment
This pattern is designed to fit a standard Starbucks reusable mug. However, you can easily adjust your chain stitch amount on the base of the coffee cozy pattern to fit the mug of your choice! You'll chain the amount that fits perfectly around your mug + 1 chain stitch. For instance, if 28 stitches fit perfectly around your mug you will chain 29 and each row will be 28 stitches.

Row 7: SC dec, chain 1 (1 stitch)
Continue up the left side with a row of slip stitches around the entire ear (chaining 1 in each corner).
When you arrive back to the tip of the ear, chain 1.
Tie off pulling through that chain stitch to secure and weave in the loose end.
Using the long tail from the beginning of the ear and your tapestry needle, stitch the two corners of the bottom of the ear together. They 'roll' inward to create the curve of Baby Yoda's ears. Then attach to either side of the head. Tie off and trim any excess yarn. Set aside.
Baby Yoda's Arms (Make 2):
Round 1: In a magic circle, chain 1, SC 4, pull tight (4 stitches)
Round 2: SC in each stitch around (4 stitches)
on the last stitch of the 2nd round, switch to brown
Round 3: SC in each stitch around (4 stitches)
Slip stitch, chain 1
Tie off with long tail, pulling through the chain to secure.
Baby Yoda Coffee Cozy Assembly:
You can choose any order of assembly that you'd prefer! This is just what worked best for me!
Using the long tail from the base of Baby Yoda's head, stitch the bottom half of the head onto the coffee sleeve base. The top half of the head sits above the top of the coffee sleeve base.
Now, attach the safety eyes through the head and the back of the coffee sleeve base, securing the backs.
Using the long tails and your tapestry needle, attach the arms (I actually created the seam below before attaching the arms so I could see where they would sit on the mug).
How to Create an Invisible Seam:
Fold the coffee sleeve with the wrong side out (Baby Yoda on the inside) and line up the rough edges.
Using a tapestry needle and the long tails, stitch the rough ends together.
Tie off and trim any excess yarn.
Turn right side out.
I hope you have enjoyed creating with me! I had so much fun designing this Baby Yoda Coffee Cozy Free Crochet Pattern!
