Tapestry Heart Cup Cozy | YouShouldCraft.com #crochet #Valentine

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).
