Rombus Coffe Cup Cozy

This fun coffee cup cozy is a very quick and easy small project between big projects or perfect for stashbusting.

It is available in 1 size only, to fit a 12 oz. /340 ml travel coffee cup. 
The pattern is using front post treble crochet stitches to create a nice, textured look.

I CREATED A PHOTO TUTORIAL FOR ROUNDS 4, 6 and 8, YOU CAN FIND IT HERE.

Difficulty:           Intermediate

Size:                     To fit a 12 oz. /340 ml travel coffee cup

Gauge:                4 SC = 1”

Materials needed:

  • 5 mm (H) size hook
  • approx. 20-25 grams (34-42.5 metres/37.2-46.5 yards) of Drops Loves You 8 100 % cotton or any other 100% cotton,aran/worsted weight yarn
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors

Stitches used and Abbreviations:

CH = chain

ST = stitch

SK= skip

SLST = slip stitch

SC = single crochet

HDC = half double crochet

DC = double crochet

FPTR = front post treble crochet

FPTR2tog = front post treble two together

*-* =repeat pattern between these symbols

Additional terms/ Special Stitches:

Stitching in the 3rd loop only of HDC:

Look at the top of the stitch and locate the sideways ”V”, bend the stitch to look at the back and you should see another ”V”. You will be working into the back loop of that ”V”. This creates a nice, braided look.

Front Post Treble Crochet:

Yarn over twice, insert your hook from the front around the post of given stitch, from right to left, yarn over and finish your treble crochet as usual.

Additional notes:

  • Each round starts with a Chain 1 or 2. This is NOT counted as a stitch
  • US terms used throughout
  • If you need some help with the stitches, there’s a PHOTO TUTORIAL for round 4,6 and 8 in a separate PDF file
