Coffee Cup Cozy

I had seen some patterns for a coffee cup cozy and took 2 patterns to make my own.

I used one from Crochetville user vigilant20 and one from Crochet me Magazine by Kelly A. Jackson.

Worsted weight yarn and any novelty yarn for the edging.
Size H hook
Do not join rounds unless stated. Use stitch marker to mark beginning of the round.

Chain 31, join with sl st to form a ring

(Chain should be about 7 3/4″ – depending on how tight or loose you crochet/type of yarn used/size hook used, simply make sure your beginning ring is about 7 3/4″ around, increasing the stitches by one stitch every other round for a total of 4 increased stitches. Keep crocheting until the cozy is 3 3/4″ tall.
