Fall Leaves Cup Cozy – Crochet Pattern

Fall is my favorite season by far. I just love the changing of the leaves and the beautiful warm tones the season brings. So I just had to design a Fall cozy that incorporated some of beauty in it. And what better to capture those beautiful colors than Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in the Polo color. The variegated yarn changes hues so subtly, it captures the beautifully imperfect colors of nature perfectly.

It’s been awhile since my last post, which was also a cup cozy back in the Spring. Work has been keeping me pretty busy, it’s hard to find time to get some of my ideas designed, written up, and photographed. In fact, I have some patterns that I’ve jotted down, but they need pictures or finished. Hopefully I can start making more time to finish some of my ideas. It’s tough sometimes being a full-time mom with a full-time job and so many hobbies.

Materials:

  • Less than a skein of worst-weight cotton yarn in cream
    (I used Red Heart Scrubby Smoothie Yarn in Loofa)
  • Small amount of worsted-weight yarn in various fall leaf colors

  • Size H (5.0mm) Crochet Hook
  • Size E (3.5mm) Crochet Hook

Size: 10″ Circumference x 3½” Height
Guage:
4 rows x 4 stitches = 1″ in
