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
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.
Base of Cozy:
Start with Color one (Green)
Row 1: Working in bb, starting in 2nd ch from hook, sc 29 (29)

sew eyes about Rnd 2&3 of base with 3 stitches between eyes.
Ears: Make Two

Rnd 8: sc 6, 3sc, sc 6 (15)
option: for more of a pointed ear sub the 2nd sc of the 3sc for a picot stitch
slst in 1st stitch of Row 7 then slst into last stitch of row 7
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
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!
