CROCHET: Christmas Tree Coffee Sleeve (Beginner Coffee Cozy)

Updated: Feb 5

Hello, hi & welcome back! Today I'm so excited to share my crochet pattern for this adorable Christmas Tree Coffee Sleeve! This is a minimalist, Scandinavian design that brings the perfect amount of holiday cheer to your mug without overwhelming the eyes. These coffee cozies work up super quickly and make wonderful holiday gift ideas.

Materials (affiliate links):


  • Chain

  • SC - Single Crochet

*This pattern is designed to fit a standard Starbucks reusable mug. You can easily adjust your chain stitch amount to fit the mug of your choice and increase or decrease the pattern by that amount. For instance, if 28 stitches fit around your mug you will chain 29 and each row will be 28 stitches.

Coffee Sleeve Crochet Pattern:

With Cream, chain 35

Rows 1-12: SC in each stitch, chain 1 (34 stitches)

tie off with a long tail and pull through the last chain 1 stitch to secure

Christmas Tree:

This part is most helpful to see in the video tutorial above.

  • Using a tapestry needle and green yarn, create one vertical stitch from top to bottom in the center of your work. I call this the 'base'.

  • Then, create seven 'zig-zags' across the base (each zig-zag will have two pass-throughs of yarn).

  • These zig-zags will gradually get smaller as you work toward the top of the tree base.

  • Leave a little space at the top of the base for the snowflake star.

  • Tie off and trim any excess yarn.

  • Using a traditional needle and thread, attach the snowflake button to the top of the tree securely.


Turning the wrong side of your project outward (button on the inside), line up both rough edges of your coffee sleeve and stitch together using your tapestry needle and the long cream tail. Pay close attention to the top and bottom of the seam so the coffee sleeve will not pull apart when stretched onto your mug. Tie off and trim any excess yarn. Turn right side out!

I hope you have enjoyed creating with me!
