Ok – so if you are new to the Celtic Weave your first attempt at this crochet cup cozy pattern may take slightly longer. I can make this cup cozy from start to finish in about 30 minutes.

The Celtic Weave is an intermediate crochet stitch. It uses front and back post stitches to create this stunning texture that is so familiar to many.

But don’t worry if you are an advanced beginner looking for a bit of a challenge! I have a video tutorial for working the Celtic Weave in the round linked below.

Inspiration behind this crochet cup cozy pattern

Time for my confession – this pattern has been waiting for it’s official release for way too long. When I say that I mean it was tested way back in January 2020!

But because it is so gorgeous I didn’t want to just throw it out there. I decided that it needed a winter release.

And so the plan was to release it in the winter of 2020. Then other patterns and events got in the way and I literally forgot about it.

Until last Summer…

So here it is!

Construction of the design

As with all of my crochet cup cozy patterns, this one is worked from the bottom up and in the round so is seamless.

You start with the ribbed bottom section and then work your way up the cup cozying a few short rounds.

The Yarn

For my cup cozy I used Paintbox Cotton aran. At the time of writing this blog post it is on sale too!

For me cotton is a no-brainer for any kitchen or bathroom pattern and it is absolutely perfect for cup cozies too!

Cotton is stronger than acrylic, so it lasts longer. You can wash it at higher temperatures and tumble dry it if necessary. And it looks great for much longer. Cotton does not pill and it is unlikely that the dye will fade very much at all.

All of this means that your crochet cup cozy (if made with cotton) will be used and look fabulous for years to come.

Materials you will need to make this crochet cup cozy:

  • #4 worsted weight cotton (approx.40 yards)
  • 5mm hook
  • Stitch markers (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle


Fits 20 oz Starbucks’s take away cup, most travel mugs and Costa take away cups.


Important pattern notes:

This pattern is written in US terms.

Pattern is worked from the bottom up, working the pattern by working the band first in rows, then joining the band’s ends to make a circle, thus working in the round for the rest of the pattern.

The Celtic Weave Video Tutorial:

There are several video tutorials linked in this pattern such as how to work the camel stitch, how to treble crochet etc.

But my video on how to work the Celtic Weave in rounds is most important for you!
