Today I wanted to share my Astrid Hygge Cup Cozy Crochet Pattern with all of you! This luxurious piece was a side project that I came up with back in November 2019. At the time, Bebe was quite unwell and I wanted to stay by her as much as possible while she rested. Amigurumi projects usually require tons of sewing and working with different yarns, so that was not an option for me. This project was influenced by the Star Stitch Cup Cozy by Stephanie. After creating her project (which, fail on my part by the way, because I didn’t realize none of my mugs fit the cup cozy!), I wanted to come up with something that fits my reusable cups. I experimented for a while and eventually came up with this pattern! This pretty cup cozy is worked in rounds and fits into the recyclable 16 fl oz cups from Starbucks. I hope you will have fun making your very own Astrid Hygge Cup Cozy as well! If you would like a super detailed, ad-free version, with more than 30+ full-colored step-by-step photos, you can purchase it here!
Although Bebe is no longer in this world, I still feel her presence at times. I miss her so much and I wish she I can go back to that November….
