Mug and Ice Cream Pint Cozy
A Free Crochet Pattern
What do you think about cozies for mugs and ice cream pints? I don’t know if you’re like me, but, I don’t like to hold things that are too hot and while I love ice cream, I don’t want my hands to be too cold either. What a conundrum!
With this cozy, you’ll keep your hands from getting burned or getting too cold while drinking tea or coffee, and while eating ice cream in a pint. Make your own unique cozy with lots of colors choices. You can go solid or stripe. You can also make your cozy taller. The choice is yours! Best of all, this is a great stash busting project where you only need a few yards of yarn to make this fun cozy. It also works up super quick!
In order to be comfortable while drinking my tea and eating my ice cream, I decided to come up with a cozy that will work for both a mug and an ice cream pint. I have a specific tea mug that I love using and it doesn’t have handles. This tea mug has a strainer that I use to steep my tea in, so I love using that. And, when I drink my tea, I like the water to be boiling so that the tea can steep and so that I can take my time drinking my tea.
When I eat ice cream, I buy pints for myself so that I can eat as much or as little as I want and know that it’s only me that’s eating the ice cream. This is where I need something to help keep my hands from getting too cold. The cozy works perfectly!

- Ch1 does not equal a stitch. Place your sc and hdc in the same st.
- When joining, skip the ch1 and join to the top of the sc or hdc with a sl st.
- Do your color changes when joining, and alternate colors as you’d like. Carry up your color to make it easier to pick up for next rounds.
- The written pattern does not include when to change colors. It will assume that you will change colors as you’d like.
- Pattern is written for both mug cozy and ice cream pint cozy. Ice cream pint cozy instructions are in parenthesis ().
- You can make your cozy taller. Just add extra rounds than suggested in the pattern.
