5 Little Monsters: Hot Cocoa Crocheted Mug Cozy

Hot Cocoa Crocheted Mug Cozy

-Compensation for this post provided by Stephen's Gourmet Hot Cocoa as part of the Mom it Forward Influencer Network-

One of our family's favorite things as the weather starts to get cooler is a cup of hot chocolate. We especially love it around Christmas time. There is nothing better than going out to see Christmas light displays or playing in the snow and then warming up with a delicious cup of hot chocolate. Hot Cocoa also makes a great gift for neighbors, friends, or teachers. You can add in a mug or two and crochet some mug cozies to wrap around them.

We love Stephen's Gourmet Hot Cocoa because it comes in so many delicious flavors You can find all of the flavors here:  https://www.indulgentfoods.com/ . Our kids love the Peanut Butter Cup and Candy Cane flavors. I also like Salted Carmel and Mint Truffle. There are lots of great choices and at the end of this post you can enter to win a year's supply, 15 cans in your choice of flavors.

I picked up a couple of inexpensive mugs at the store and crocheted cozies to wrap around them. Mugs come in so many different sizes but it is really easy to adjust the size to fit your mugs since it is just a rectangle with a button loop. They only take a small amount of yarn so they are a great way to use up scraps of yarn.

How to Crochet a Mug Cozy

You will need:

  • a mug
  • medium weight yarn
  • H crochet hook
  • large wooden button
  • yarn needle
  • needle and matching thread
  • scissors


ch 10 (to adjust the width of the cozy increase or decrease the beginning ch by multiples of 2)

Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and each ch to the end (9 sc)
Row 2: ch 1, turn, [(sc, dc) in first stitch, skip 1],  repeat until there is one stitch left, sc in last stitch (5 sc, 4 dc)
Row 3: ch 1 turn, [(sc, dc) in first stitch (the sc from previous row), skip 1],  repeat until there is one stitch left, sc in last stitch (5 sc, 4 dc)

Repeat row 3 until you have the necessary length, I did a total of 26 rows. You want it to wrap almost all the way around, leaving a gap where the handle is, it should not quite touch the handle on either side. 

Border: ch 1, turn, sc across the top working 3 sc in corner stitch, sc evenly across long edge working 1 sc in the end of each row, turn corner and sc in the first 4 stitches across short edge, ch 10, skip 1 stitch, turn corner, sc evenly across the long edge, slip stitch to the first sc, cut yarn and weave in ends. 

Wrap around the mug to see where the button needs to be, sew the button on with needle and thread.
