Quick & Basic Coffee Cozy

I had some extra Swish left over from another project, and I thought: hey! What could I made with this? Something fast and simple, but also very useful. Coffee cozy time!

Coffee Cozy

I’ve found it best to put the cozy on the cup before filling it with coffee. I may modify the pattern to accommodate this issue.


  • KnitPicks Swish Lemongrass Heather
  • set of 4 US size 6 DPN (or 40″ circ for magic loop)


6 sts + 9 rows = 1″ on US size 6 needles


Stretchy enough to fit one to-go coffee/tea cup


Cast on 46 stitches and join in round.

Knit 4 rounds in K1P1 rib.

Knit 2 rounds.

Next round: K1 K2tog [K to last 3] SSK K1
Next 3 rounds: K

Repeat the above 4 rounds 4 more times.
(There should now be 36 stitches on the needles.)

Knit 1 more round.

Knit 4 rounds in K1P1 rib.


BO all stitches and weave in ends. Enjoy your coffee!
