Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm excited to share my Elf Coffee Cozy Free Crochet Pattern with you! Elf is one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies so I thought it would be fun to spread Christmas cheer with this quick and easy coffee sleeve. These work up super quickly and make excellent crochet gifts for the holidays!
Each coffee cozy is crocheted in rows to create a flat rectangle. The edges are seamed together using a tapestry needle and the buckle embellishment is added at the end. The finished coffee sleeve measures approximately 4 inches tall by 4 inches 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).

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.
