The level required to successfully complete this pattern can be classified as intermediate, but you could crochet this cup cozy as an upper beginner too, if you’re willing to take on a challenge!

In this pattern you will find detailed instructions, a bunch of tips & tricks, as well as step-by-step pictures to help you along the way. I provide detailed explanations for pretty much everything you need to know, except for the absolute basics such as the slip knot, slip stitch, chain, single crochet and double crochet.

For the best experience, you should already be comfortable with working the bead stitch and working in the front and back loops, or at least be open to learning with the help of my written instructions and pictures.

If you’re an advanced crocheter and don’t need all the tutorial pictures, I have you covered! With your purchase, you will also be able to download a simplified version of the pattern, including only the written instructions and tips & tricks. I also highly encourage you to choose the simplified version for a more environment-friendly printing!

The pattern provides instructions on adjusting the width and circumference of the cup sleeve, so you can use it for any cup! The stitch counts and yarn suggested in this pattern will create a cup cozy suitable for a standard Starbucks cup, with a snug fit around the top and looser around the bottom. Depending on your preferences, you can adjust the stitch count, yarn used and hook size in order to create the perfect cup sleeve!
