Crochet Minions Coffee Cup Cozy Pattern
In honor of the new Minions movie that was just released, I decided I wanted to try and make a Minion coffee cup cozy. While looking my first coffee cup cozy, the design of the Minion popped into my head. It turns out to be a bit larger than the previous one I made but I think it turned out pretty cute.
This is actually the second one I made. The first was the test and it needed a few adjustments on the placement of the eye and the black strap. When I was working on this project, I wasn’t sure if this Minion was going to have two eyes or one until it was completed.
One thing I did when changing colors in this pattern, I used an invisible join. This is a great tutorial on how to do an invisible join if you don’t know how. Pay close attention since we are counting stitches in this pattern. Once it was joined. I added my next color and went on.
Crochet Minions Coffee Cup Cozy Pattern
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
COZY PATTERN: (using the I hook)
Row 1: (blue yarn) Chain 30. Slip Stitch to beginning chain (make sure not to twist your chain). Chain 1 single crochet around. (30 stitches) This is where I would do the invisible join before changing yarn colors. Cut your yarn and crochet over the ends when you start the next row.
Row 2-7: (yellow yarn) Join your yellow yarn and *Chain 1. Single crochet around. Slip stitch to join. (30 stitches)* Repeat from * to* until you reach row 7. Instead of slip stitching to join on row 7, I used the invisible join to finish the row. Cut your yarn and crochet over the ends when you start the next row.
Row 8-9: (black yarn) Join your black yarn and *Chain 1. Single crochet around.* Slip stitch to join. (30 stitches) Repeat from * to * at the end of row 9, join using the invisible join. Cut your yarn and crochet over the ends when you start the next row.
Row 10-15: (yellow yarn) Join your yellow yarn and Chain 1. Single crochet around. Slip stitch to join (30 stitches) Repeat from * to * until you reach the end of row 15. Join using the invisible join. Cut your yarn and weave in your ends.
EYE PATTERN: (using H hook)
Row 1: (black yarn) Chain 2. Single crochet 4 stitches in the first chain. Use the invisible join to join (4 stitches). Cut your yarn and crochet over the ends when you start the next row.
Row 2: (brown yarn) Join your brown yarn and chain 1. Single crochet 2 stitches in each of the stitches. Join with invisible join (8 stitches). Cut your yarn and crochet over the ends when you start the next row.
Row 3: (white yarn) Join your white yarn and chain 2. Double crochet 2 stitches in each stitch. Join with invisible join (16 stitches). Cut your yarn and crochet over the ends when you start the next row.
Row 4: (gray yarn) Join your gray yarn and chain 1. Single crochet 2 stitches in each stitch. Join with indivisible join (32 stitches). When you cut your yarn, make sure to leave a long tail so you can use this to attach the eye to the cozy.
Attaching the eye: Place your eye in the center so it is centered over the black stripe. Using your yarn needle, sew the eye onto the cozy.
