I have really been obsessed with crocheting lately. Officially caught the crochet bug. I’ve been learning lots and watching tons of youtube videos and trying to put together different things in hopes that I create some new original pattern but nothing yet.
So I still had some yarn left after though after making my scarf on my last post and I decided to just finish it off since there isn’t enough for another bigger project. So I decided to make a little cup cozie! I’ve done a moss stitch before but with only one color so I decided to give it a try with two colors and boy did it turn out better than I thought it would. This green/blue/brown ombre yarn is just a gorgeous pairing with the navy blue when it comes to this particular stitch so I’m really happy with the way this cup cozie came out. If I get a similar ombre yarn in the future, I am going to have to use this pattern with a bigger project next time.
Main Color – Impeccable Yarn, Loops and Threads in Navy
Striped Color – Impeccable Yarn, Loops and Threads, in Tropical Storm (Blue Brown Ombre)
5.5 mm Crochet Hook
9 sts per 2inches x 6 st per 2inches
When folded in half, it measures about 4.5 inches
1) This whole pattern is crocheted in Moss/Granite Stitch
2) I alternate between two colors, carrying each color yarn across.
3) We are crocheting in the horizantal so this will determine how tall the cozie is going to be. You can choose how tall to make your cup cozie by adding more or less stitches. As long as the number of stitches are an even number. In terms of how long to crochet for, keep measuring on a cup you have to see how it’s fitting. This will determine how many rows you need to crochet. Mine fit nicely with 26 rows and it isn’t too tight. If you like it snug or looser on your cup, then up to you on how many rows you want.
ROW 1 (COLOUR A)- SC in the 4th chain from the hook (this will mean that the first 2 chains are considered your first SC stitch and the 3rd is you skipping a chain). CH 1. repeat *SK 1 CH, SC in next CH, CH 1*. You should be ending with a SC on the last CH. Chain 2, turn.
ROW 2 – (COLOR B) *Skip 1 ST, SC in chain space, CH 1* repeat this sequence across. Every row from now on should end in a SC on last stitch.
ROW 3 – 26 – Repeat ROW 2, alternating colors.
(You will start to see that the colors line up really nicely like in the picture above. If it’s not, then you are missing a step somewhere like skipping the wrong stitches.)
TO FINISH – Fasten off on last stitch with slip stitch and leave a tail to whip stitch across. Weave in any lingering ends.
