Supplies Needed:

Yarn: three colors of worsted weight (standard/medium 4 weight)

I used: arylic worsted weight (for the ones in the progress photos)

color one - Green 21 yards

color two - Brown 4 ½ yards

color three - Black 2 yards


E (3.50mm)

H (5.00mm)


Tapestry Needle

Stitch Marker

Abbreviations Used:

MR - magic ring

ch - chain

slst - slip stitch

sc - single crochet

dc - double crochet

hdc - half double crochet

tog - together (also known as a decrease stitch)

bb - back bump

BLO - back loop only

Row - working back and forth

Rnd - working circumference of the piece

CC - color change

sN vs Ns -

If the number is before the stitch, that number of stitches in one stitch. if the number is after the stitch, that stitch is done over that number of stitches of the previous row. Example 5dc = 5 dc in next stitch, dc 5 = dc over the next five stitches

*sN, sN* x N -

Repeat what is between the asterisks (*) for the indicated number of repeat times (x N). example *sc 1, 2dc, tr 1* x 5: you would single crochet, two double crochet, treble crochet then repeat that sequence five times for a total of 20 stitches across the 15 stitches of the previous row.

Note: Hook sizes are the sizes of hooks I used, if you tend to crochet with a tight tension you may want to go up a hook size.

leave long tail for sewing, cut, & tie

sew ears between Rnd 3&5 of Base and 1 or 2 stitches out from lateral edge of the eye

You can fold the bottom corner of the ears to the middle one row up before sewing for the fold-over effect.


Color one (Green)

With a tapestry needle: loop yarn around 2 or three stitches between Row 1 & Rnd 2

Embellishment options:

Change the positioning of the ears, and give the little guy some eyebrows to change their expression. Adding white to the eye could give the eye more depth.

Add some white yarn and brush it would for some hair for an older dude

Add some pink yarn or some blush/fabric paint to the inside of the ears

I hope you enjoyed making this coffee cup cozy and that it brings you joy when you use it!
