Crochet Owl Mug Cozy Pattern

I love how this little crochet owl mug cozy pattern (hodgepodge pattern, I should say) turned out.
I’ve been crocheting a lot lately – I pick up one craft that I like, do it for a few months (just long enough to invest hundreds in materials) and then I decide I like to do something else 🙂

I used pieces from a couple of patterns to make it the way I wanted – and though I made it for a gift, I may just have to selfishly keep it all to myself.

Except I don’t drink coffee. Not even a little. Can’t stand the way it smells, can’t stand the way it tastes, dark, light, sweetened, straight – I just plain do not like it.

But I like tea – so I could use it for my tea – except I don’t like hot tea – so I guess back to plan A – it’s a gift 🙂

You can use any colors you wish – it takes so very little of each color that I just used tiny amounts from my stash which included – however if you start with new materials below, you’ll have enough to make 8-10 crochet owl mug cozies.

Crochet Owl Mug Cozy

For the Cozy

Chain 21

Join with Slip Stich

Row 2-5, Ch1, HDC in each stitch around, join with slip stitch

On last row, do not CH1 after joining, fasten off.

For the Eyes

For the eyes, I used the Owl Crochet pattern

Her eyes turned out a LOT better than mine – still can’t figure out what I did wrong.

For the Beak

Chain 5

SC in 2nd Ch from hook and in each stitch, fasten off.


Sew all parts together and weave in ends.
For the eyes, I also sewed a couple of stitches between the two eyes, mostly to cover up a snafu, but I kind of like how it turned out.

Seriously, a 20 minute project – Enjoy


Here is where you can find the mug printable that my cozy is resting on.

You can also find a lot of patterns I’ve scooped up from the net on my Pinterest Crochet Board.

I have not seen anyone doing crochet in a long time. Years ago my mum tried to teach it to me but…..

[…] this year I’ve opened a low drawer in the closet in my craft room and had to move over 20 crochet mug cozies out of the way to get the craft bags. Those 20 cozies were a direct result of my ADD meeting a […]
