I knit this Halloween Coffee Cup Cozy years ago with the intent that there would be a whole bunch of seasonal cozies to follow.
I’ve still only knit the one but it is so cute that every time fall rolls around I think about making others.
The knitting pattern itself is just for the blank cozy so you could fill it with anything you like. Duplicate stitch is the key to turning this cozy festive, but you could also sew on a patch, use buttons or whatever else you like to embellish it.
- Make the background red and stitch on a tree with French knot ornaments.
- Make stripes in fall colors.
- Stitch a maple leaf instead of a pumpkin.
- Make a pastel version and stitch on a bunny face or an Easter egg.
- Or a red version with a pink heart
Someday I’ll probably get to stitching some of those, but right now I’m almost never leaving the house with coffee and if I do it doesn’t leave my car, so I don’t have much need for a cozy.
This one was originally published as a free Raverly download, but as I know a lot of people are trying to move off Ravelry I wanted to share it here, too.
I’d love to see your Halloween Coffee Cup Cozy if you make one! Share it on social with #ourdailycraft or tag me @ourdailycraft.
