Unicorn Coffee Cozy – Free Crochet Pattern
I don’t know about y’all, but I can’t live without my coffee. I know I’m not alone there! While my Keurig at home makes some pretty mean dark roast, I love me some Starbucks! Hot or iced, a lattè is my favorite drink, hands down! You?
But that lovely Starbucks lattè makes my poor little hand hot or cold to go with it’s lovely rich coffee self! What is a coffee loving girl to do? Well if she is creative and crafty, she will design herself a Unicorn Coffee Cozy, that’s what she will do! And so, she did! 🙂
As such, with this delicious motivation for design, and a Crochet Unicorn Hat Pattern fresh in my mind, a Unicorn Coffee Cozy (to match) was born! With the usual amount of trial and error, and lots o’ lattès for inspiration (I NEEDED those cups to get the fit just right, I swear! 😉) I found just the right sizing and got the image tweaked the way I wanted. Or as close as any perfectionist could get! 🙂
I am so excited to share this fun, Free Pattern with you! My Unicorn Coffee Cozy Design is quick and fun to make. Make one for yourself to make your coffee look fabulous! Added bonus is that your hand is kept just the right temperature while you enjoy that jolt of life… er … I mean caffeine! 😉
You can make one for a coffee loving friend – Unicorn Coffee Cozies make a great gift – especially paired with a Starbucks gift card. Better yet pair this awesome Unicorn Coffee Cozy gift with Y-O-U as you two enjoy a cup of coffee together! Make sure to also make a Cozy for yourself, and you’ll be the envy of the coffee shop!

I am thrilled to welcome you back for the next step in our Learn to Crochet Series – the Single Crochet Stitch! Just a few simple steps take you from a chain to a stitch – and with a single crochet you can make almost anything!
This Learn to Crochet Series was designed to help you learn to crochet in the same manner I learned! I learned to crochet with the help of books, YouTube videos (like those you will find below!), and beginner patterns, rather than having a formal “teacher” to speak of.
I like this method of learning without pressure, at your own pace, and in your own time. Perfect for busy moms or students who need to work at their own pace! Or those who don’t have a lot of free time to take a class or seminar, but are eager to learn! Crochet is a wonderful creative outlet! For me, crochet was IT! I hope it is for your too, but if it isn’t, learning this way won’t cost you much time or money – Hooray!

A lot of us are moms and we don’t have a lot of free time to take a class or seminar, but we are eager to learn! Eager to have something to call our own – a creative outlet! For me, crochet was IT!

Foundation Crochet Stitches
Learn to Crochet Series
Hello friends! Thanks so much for stopping by! Welcome to the first installment of Weekend Crochet – Tips & Tricks! Today I will share one of my favorite methods that I have learned as a Crochet Artist. Foundation Crochet Stitches!
I will be sharing a both a written description and a video tutorial for each of the Foundation Crochet Stitches. Included are Foundation Single (fsc), Half Double (fhdc), and Double Crochet (fdc) methods.
The Foundation Crochet Stitches are a great technique to add a bit more stretch to your work than a traditional chain offers. I love to use Foundation Crochet to when making hats, mittens, and crochet crowns to name a few! I highly recommend the Foundation Half Double Crochet (fhdc) method for the first round of my Basic Crochet Crown and Crochet Dinosaur Crown Patterns!
