Kate Coffee Beanie Cozy is here!

Kate Coffee Beanie Cozy is here!

Today we release our Kate Coffee Beanie Cozy (or CBC as we refer to them). It uses the same gorgeous and timeless stitch combo that is in all of our Kate designs. It is a great collection for girls of all ages from children to the more mature lady. So far we have a gorgeous warm wrap, a hat and scarf and now the CBC with a wristlet following soon!

If you have been following us for any length of time you will have probably realised that we get inspired by stitch combos and have quite a few collections that we keeping coming back to and adding to.


Naming our collections

We name our collections after the people we love. This particular collection was named after one of my sisters, Kate. We are also starting to add to our Hannah collection (another sister and Kate’s identical twin) and we have some Susan items (both my mum and my baby sister are called Susan). Sara has the Paige collection named after her daughter and the Robin collection named after her father. You get the idea!

We recently did a pattern tutorial on our YouTube Channel for the Kate Scarf!

These videos show you how to work the stitch combo you need for any of our Kate Collection patterns!


A practical gift

Our coffee beanie cozies make fantastic gifts. I team mine up with a Starbucks 20 oz cup and / or gift card when I am looking for something quick.

The Kate Coffee Beanie Cozy is more of a feminine design, but we do have more unisex designs too.

Feel free to check out

  • the herringbone cbc here,
  • the grit stitch cbc here and
  • the bean stitch cbc here.

They make great gifts for teachers, teens, adults, that last minute gift for a co-worker.



You can use them for your hot drinks during the autumn and winter and for your iced drinks in summer! My daughter uses hers on her shush drinks (they are basically ice with flavoured syrup) and she insists that there is always a couple in my handbag to use as required! Here she is using hers about a year ago – when we were allowed to go out places and have some fun!

works on hot or cold drinks!
Great for any age!

N Stitch Crochet Mug Cozy Pattern

mug rug pattern

The N Stitch crochet mug cozy is exactly what it says – its a mug cozy made using the N stitch.

You need this N Stitch Mug Cozy!  Also called mug rugs, these are great scrap busters. They made great gifts for just about anyone – relatives, friends, teachers, house-warming gifts, donations… And they are a cute addition to hampers.

Here in the UK people drink hot drinks all year round. We are known for our love of a nice cup of hot tea after all! So, on those meh days these are great when you just want to pop on that oversized sweater and curl up with a book or movie and your favourite hot beverage.

Have you tried the N stitch?

We originally used it in the farmhouse spa set. And it wasn’t until we were asked to use this set for a CAL in another group  that we realised how many people had not heard of this stitch! I mean, it’s gorgeous. And it’s not as complicated as it looks. It requires you to know how to do a half double crochet and a slip stitch.

We also use this stitch in our Shades of Spring afghan. Again, most of our testers hadn’t come across it before. One, a designer friend, went on to use it in a design for a preemie hat and blanket. There was a good four or five stitches that none of the testers had come across in the afghan. But they enjoyed them all! It made us realise just how many stitches there are that are under-used and under-appreciated by designers.


To work this pattern you will need:


Finished size – approx 10.5’’ (including the tab) x 3’’

To make it larger increase row 1 by multiples of 2.

How to work the N Stitch

The N stitch is worked over two stitches. Skip the first stitch,




hdc in the next stitch,



working into the skipped stitch, insert hook from top to bottom of front loop only,




yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull thru ONE loop, yo,



insert hook back into the stitch you did the first hdc, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through all 4 loops on hook.

Isn’t the texture wonderful?
