Crochet Star Stitch Pumpkin Coffee Cozy

With Fall here, what better way to show off your favorite Fall beverage than with a cute cup cozy. I know that it may sound silly to wrap your disposable coffee cup in some yarn but I love to accessorize when I’m out and about and yes, I accessorize my coffee cups too. Who wants those boring little cardboard sleeves when you can have a cute and colorful cozy that you made yourself? I thought, what better way to pay homage to my favorite fall beverage (the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte) than with a pumpkin coffee cozy. Here’s the pattern:

Instructions:

Cozy:
With I 5.5mm Hook and Color A

Step 1: Ch 17
Step 2: Pull up a loop in the second ch from hook
Step 3: Pull up a loop in each of the next 4 sts (You should have 6 loops on your hook.)
Step 4: Yarn over and pull through all 6 loops on hook (This is your first star stitch) Ch 1 to close the star (This becomes the “eye” of the star)
Step 5: Insert your hook into the “eye” (ch 1 space) of your completed star and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook)
Step 6: Insert hook into the back of the last loop of the previous star and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook)
 
Step 7: Insert hook into the same chain as the last loop of the previous star and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook)
Step 8: Pull up a loop in each of the next 2 chains (6 loops on hook)
Step 9: Yarn over and pull through all 6 loops. Ch 1 to close the star.

Repeat steps 5-9 all the way across and end with 1 hdc in the last ch (same ch as the last loop of previous star) (6 star sts)

Step 10: Ch 1. Turn. SC in the top of the hdc.
Step 11: 1 sc into the “eye” of the next star.
Step 12: 2 sc into the eye of each star, all the way across. 1 sc into the top of the t-ch, turn. (13 sts)
Step 13: Ch 2, yarn over, insert hook in 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Pull up a loop in each of the next 3 sts.

Step 14: Yarn over and pull through all 6 loops on hook. Ch 1 to close the star.

Step 15: Continue with the star stitch (steps 5-9) all the way across ending with 1 hdc in the same ch as the last loop of the previous star.

Repeat steps 11-15 ten more times, ending with a row of sc (I wrapped my cozy around my cup to determine the right length. If your cozy is still too short to wrap around your cup, add a few more rows until you reach the desired length)

Ch 1, turn, 1 sc into each of the next 5 sts, ch 3, sk 3 sts, 1 sc into each of the last 5 sts.

Sc evenly around the entire cozy. Fasten off and weave ends with the yarn needle.

For Pumpkin Applique:

With F 3.75mm Hook and Color B
  1. Magic circle.
  2. Ch 2, 12 dc in magic circle, join in the first dc with a sl st (not the ch 2.)
  3. Ch 1, [1 hdc, 1 dc] into the first st, 2 dc into each of the next 3 sts, 1 hdc into the next st, sl st into the next st, 1 hdc into the next st, 2 dc into each of the next 3 sts, [1 dc, 1 hdc] into the next st, sl st into the last st. Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.
  4. Join Color C in last st of previous round.
  5. Ch 3, 1 sc into the 2nd ch from hook and the next st, sl st into beginning st of previous round. Fasten off and weave ends.

Position your applique onto the center of the cozy. Sew your applique onto the cozy. Wrap the cozy around your cup to determine where you need to position your button. Sew your button on and you are all done!

  1. i have learnt how to the star stitch but having trouble when i turn it ,it looks lobsided any help on what i am doing wrong please let me know

    1. Hi Janet! I would check your tension. Make sure that you are using the same amount of tension when you turn. Also, if the loops on the hook are not all a consistent size, it could cause it to be loose. I hope that helps!

  2. That is SO pretty! I just starting knitting and I'm not very good yet, but I'll definitely be putting this on my idea list.
