Corgi Coffee Cozy - Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Mar 27

Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm so excited to share my free crochet pattern for this adorable Corgi Coffee Cozy! He is the perfect mug companion and a quick crochet project! This adorable corgi face will bring a smile to your face each time you pick up your mug!

This Corgi Coffee Cozy is comprised of the coffee sleeve base which is crocheted in rows to create a flat rectangle, the ears which are added to the base, the muzzle, and the rosy cheeks which are stitched onto the base using a tapestry needle. The coffee sleeve base is seamed together at the end using a tapestry needle. The finished coffee cozy measures approximately 4" tall by 4" 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).

Yarn Colors:

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!

  • I Love This Yarn in the color 'White'

  • I Love This Yarn in the color 'Light Peach'

  • Burnt Yellow/Gold (Sorry, I'm not sure!)

  • Black (Sorry, I'm not sure!)


This pattern is written in US crochet terminology.

  • Chain

  • Magic Circle

  • Slip Stitch

  • 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.

*You'll want to consider the ears in your size adjustment and make sure they end up evenly spaced accordingly depending on how many stitches you increase/decrease; the goal is to have the entirety of both ears visible on the edges of your mug when looking straight forward with however many stitches in-between the ears that requires*

Corgi Coffee Cozy - Free Crochet Pattern

Coffee Cozy Base:

With white yarn, chain 35

Rows 1-5: SC 34, chain 1 (34 stitches)

on the last stitch of the 5th row, switch to yellow/gold yarn leaving a long white tail.

Rows 6-12: SC 34, chain 1 (34 stitches)

Tie off with a relatively short tail.


Join in the 11th stitch of the 12th row counting from right to left.

Row 13: SC in the next 5 stitches, chain 1 (5 stitches)

Row 14: SC dec, SC in the next 3 stitches, chain 1 (4 stitches)

Row 15: SC dec, SC in the next 2 stitches, chain 1 (3 stitches)

Row 16: SC dec, SC in the next stitch, chain 1 (2 stitches)

Row 17: SC dec, chain 1 (1 stitch)

Tie off pulling through the chain stitch to secure.

Skip 4 stitches and repeat Rows 13-17.

Using a tapestry needle, weave in the loose ends on the ears.

Finishing Row:

Join to the far right stitch (what would have naturally been the 13th row had we not added the ears) and begin single crocheting across the entire row and over the ears.

The exceptions to single crocheting on this row will be:

  • Slip stitch in the bottom corners of the ears (4 slip stitches; 4 corners)

  • At the tops of the ears, right before the very top stitch: chain 1, SC in that top stitch, chain 1 again

At the end of the row, chain 1 and tie off with a long tail.

Crochet Corgi Muzzle:

With white yarn,

Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 6, pull tight (6 stitches)

Round 2: 2 SC in the first stitch, SC in the next stitch* (9 stitches)

Round 3: 2 SC in the first stitch, SC in the next 2 stitches* (12 stitches)

Round 4: SC in each stitch (12 stitches)

Slip stitch, chain 1

Tie off with a long tail

Using a tapestry needle and black yarn, stitch on a small triangle nose.

Use the tail from the magic circle as stuffing for the nose or add some polyfil stuffing if you'd like.

Use the long tail and a tapestry needle to stitch the muzzle onto the coffee sleeve in the center between where the white and yellow/gold meet.


Attach the safety eyes on either side of the muzzle approximately 3 stitches from the muzzle. In order for the eyes to lie as flat as possible against the mug, I like to use a wire cutter to trim the excess posts on the back of the safety eyes.

Rosy Corgi Cheeks (Make 2):

With peach yarn,

Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 6, pull tight (6 stitches)

Round 2: 2 SC in the first stitch, SC in the next 2 stitches* (8 stitches)

Slip stitch, chain 1

Tie off with a long tail

Using a tapestry needle and the long tails, stitch the cheeks onto the face in the white portion next to the eyes.

Assembly / Invisible Seam:

  • Fold the coffee cozy with the wrong side out (face on the inside) and line up the rough edges.

  • Using a tapestry needle and the long white and yellow tails, stitch the rough ends together. Pay close attention to the top and bottom of the join to ensure it won't pull apart when stretched over the mug.

  • I like to tie off by double/triple knotting the tails together on the inside and trimming any excess yarn.

  • Turn right side out.
