Pattern Design + Construction:

I am in love with these tiny burnt orange hearts and the sweater-weather vibe of this cozy! Alternating between single crochet and half double crochet stitches while utilizing the back loop only technique creates an elegant look without adding difficulty. This pattern works up really quickly and makes the perfect fall-themed gift; however, you could easily change the colors of this crochet project for any season!


This crochet Rustic Heart Cozy consists of the coffee sleeve base, which is crocheted in flat rows to create a textured rectangle. The little hearts are stitched on using a tapestry needle. The coffee sleeve base is them seamed together using a tapestry needle. Our finished coffee cozy measures approximately 4" tall by 4" wide when lying flat. Another fun feature of this pattern, it can be adjusted to fit the width of your mug of choice (see the mug size adjustment detail further below for instructions).

Yarn:

This cozy pattern calls for medium Worsted Weight (4) Yarn. I love working with worsted weight yarn due to its versatility and availability in most local craft stores. The price is also usually very affordable. Worsted weight is great for coffee sleeves since it can be washed and dried. Once again, the color possibilities for this Rustic Heart Cozy are endless!


I'm using the following yarn colors in this tutorial. Of course, you can substitute different brands as long as the ounces per gram are similar.


  • I Love This Yarn, Medium 4, 7 oz / 199 g, in the color 20 / Ivory

  • I Love This Yarn, Medium 4, 7 oz / 199 g, in the color 154 / Burnt Pumpkin

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.


Coffee Sleeve Base:

With cream yarn, chain 35


Rows 1-2: SC in each stitch, chain 1 (34 stitches)


Row 3: SC in each stitch, chain 2 (34 stitches)


Row 4: HDC in each stitch, chain 2 (34 stitches)


Rows 5-9: HDC in each stitch (back loop only), chain 2 (34 stitches)



Rows 10: HDC in each stitch (back loop only), chain 1 (34 stitches)


Rows 11-13: SC in each stitch, chain 1 (34 stitches)


Tie off with a long tail and pull through the chain to secure.


The crochet rustic heart cozy is great for beginners and a wonderful crochet gift idea.

Tiny Hearts:

This portion may be easier to understand by watching the video tutorial.


Using a yarn needle and burnt orange yarn, add 11 little hearts to the top and the bottom of your coffee sleeve.


Since we have three rows of SC at the top and bottom, this provides the perfect little space to create the hearts.


I think about them as 'V's; I put two stitches (or pass-throughs) through each side (not too tight) and continue on without tying off until the end of the row.


Start each top left of the V two stitches from the last top right of the previous V.


See the video tutorial for the crochet rustic heart cozy for more detail on the tiny hearts.

Cozy Assembly / Invisible Seam:

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

  • Using a tapestry needle and the long tail, stitch the rough ends together. You can use a whip stitch, or a simple back and forth stitch. Pay close attention to the top and bottom of the join to ensure it won't pull apart when stretched over the mug.

  • Tie off toward the center and weave in the loose ends.

  • Trim any excess yarn.

  • Turn right side out.
