Unicorn Coffee Cozy – Free Crochet Pattern

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!

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:

Crocheting from a graph: The pattern is created in the round using 2 repeats of the unicorn graph below. Each Round consists of working stitches 1-20 twice, following the color changes written in the instructions, or from the chart. The chart is worked from the bottom to the top, from right to left, following the numbers indicated. Chart is located below the written instructions.

Each square on the chart represents 1 sc stitch. On the chart, the MC is pictured in purple and the CC is pictured in pale yellow.  The written instructions will indicate the stitch numbers to be worked in parentheses before the group of stitches.  

— Ex. (1-9) with MC sc in the next 9 st, changing to CC in the last st. 

Color Changes: 

To change colors from CC to MC, complete the number of stitches in CC indicated by the pattern, stopping at the last stitch. Create your last sc by inserting hook and pulling up a loop as usual. Drop the CC and pick up the MC yarn, yo and pull through both loops on hook with MC, sc completed. Continue to create as many stitches as indicated in the pattern with MC. See photos below.
