With the Super Bowl over and done, and my present home team the Carolina Panthers defeated by my future home team of the Denver Broncos (which I guess makes sense, right?), next up is Valentine’s Day! V-Day is not my jam, but I kept seeing beautiful red and pink heart crafts on Craftgawker and Pinterest, and I started to feel kind of left out! I spotted the Heidi Cowl from Divine Debris, and a little light bulb went off. I used her idea of rotating solid and outlined hearts to create the pattern for my tapestry crochet cup cozy!

Of course, this coffee cozy isn’t only for Valentine’s Day — just pick a different color scheme (gray and yellow perhaps? monochrome blues?) and you’re good to go! Next time you’re at Starbucks, you can just say no to that cardboard sleeve because you’ll have your very own reusable, handmade, crocheted-with-love tapestry cup cozy! With adorable hearts! Perhaps green is the new color of love? Lo siento dudes, that was a lame eco-friendly pun. #sorrynotsorry

The tapestry heart cup cozy pattern uses 3-4 different colors at once (I chose red, hot pink, and white) and requires a lot of color changes and counting. However, it’s a small item and the whole cup cozy is worked in single crochet, so a beginning crocheter could use 2 colors and tackle their very first tapestry project!

I’ve provided the color-coded graph (above) for those of you that prefer to work from the chart, but if you prefer a written pattern it’s outlined below.

I began by making a yarn bobbin (from a clothespin) for each of my heart colors. In this case, I made two red bobbins and one hot pink bobbin. This helped my to keep my yarn from becoming tangled, and made it so I didn’t have to carry the red yarn through the whole piece. I carried the white throughout the whole cup cozy, but only carried the red in the red heart section, and the hot pink in the pink heart section. Hopefully this makes sense!

Color A = White (background)
Color B = Red (solid hearts)
Color C = Hot Pink (outlined heart)

When you finish, leave long yarn tails so that you can correct any imperfections as you weave in your ends. For example, I had some areas where the white yarn I carried could be seen behind my red stitches, so I wove in through that area to hide the white.

Border:
Connect Color C (hot pink) at a corner and crochet 2 sc. Begin to sc across. In each corner, crochet 3 sc. Unlike my picture, you’ll want to crochet from right to left (my border ended up being wrong-side up and I had gone too far before I noticed it).

When you’ve reached the end of your border, crochet one more sc in the space where you began (there will now be 3 sc in the first corner). Do not tie off yet.

Fold your cup cozy in half and line up the sc stitches along the horizontal border. sl st together. Trim yarn and weave in ends.

That’s it!! Pop that bad boy onto your coffee cup and you’re good to go! My finished cup cozy was about 10.5 inches in diameter and 3.75 inches tall. If you need a smaller cozy, you could use a smaller crochet hook, or you can crochet the sc border on the top and bottom, but skip the sides (just slip stitch them together in the border color).
