Hello there my darlings! Going zero waste doesn't have to be boring. I came up with a travel cup cozy crochet pattern to prove just that! If you want to drink your hot coffee or tea in style and ditch the paper cozies that end up in the trash, this is a perfect chance to do so! This travel cup cozy works up in a few minutes and takes up a small amount of chunky yarn. It's perfect to bust out your yarn stash and it will make a wonderful and eco-friendly present for the upcoming holidays! You can also use my easy crochet mug cozy to pair your gifts!


Here is how to make them!

You will need:

A small amount of yarn. I used the one in the photo from the Flying Tiger. It's a very soft synthetic fiber in a reach teal color.

A 7.00 mm hook.

A cute iron on patch. I used a cactus one and a "You had me at hello" one both from the Flying Tiger.


Yarn needle

Now it's time to embellish your travel cup cozy. You can do pretty much anything you like but I loved being able to just iron on these cute batches on mine. You just need to make sure to put a towel over the sticker and set the iron on the hottest setting. It will take 2-3 minutes for the glue to melt so take care not to burn your towel (or your hands). Let the cozy to cool a bit and then you are set!

Put one in your bag and now you will never need a paper cozy again! You can also use it on your own thermos or reusable cup!

Oh, for those who don't crochet, the coffee cup cozies are also available on my etsy shop.
