Crocheted Coffee Press Cozy {Free Pattern!}

I gave up on my coffee press a couple years ago... the coffee would never stay warm enough by the time I got to the last cup!  French press cozy to the rescue...



I was inspired by Alyssa at Hands Always Creating and all the mug cozies she has been making lately.  My friend Stephanie recently taught me to crochet (I've been a knitter for years) and I love it!  I kind of made the pattern up as I went.  I added some ribbing for a little interest, but you can do straight double crochet for the entire thing if you want.


Crocheted French Press Cozy Pattern

What you'll need:  2 skeins sport or worsted weight yarn
(I used contrasting colors)
Size M (or similar) crochet hook
2 medium or large buttons
needle and thread

Let's get started!
Using 2 strands of yarn (you will use both strands for entire pattern), chain 16
Row 1:  Skip 2 chains and DC for rest of row (14 sts)
Row 2:  Chain 3.  DC in first st and each st after to end of row.  Turn (14 sts)
Rows 3-12:  Same as row 2
***I added a little ribbing in next few rows... you can continue with a regular DC if you want through the end of the body of the pattern (rows 13 - 23)***
Row 13:  Chain 3.  FPDC in first st and each st until end of row.  Turn (14 sts)
Rows 14 - 18:  Same as row 13
Rows 19-23:  Same as row 2
Tab:
Row 24:  Chain 3.  DC in first st and next 2 sts.  Turn (4 sts)
Rows 25-26:  Same as row 24.
Bind off
Other Tab:
Row 27:  Join yarn at other end of row 23 with a sl st.  Chain 3.  DC in first st and next 2 sts.  Turn (4 sts)
Rows 28-29:  Same as row 24.
Bind off and weave in edges.

Sew a button to the 3rd st of row 2 and another button to the 12th st of row 2 (or you can place your buttons wherever works best for your coffee press).

Wrap cozy around your press and button through one of the sts in each tab with the needle and thread.

Let me know if you decide to make one!  Thanks for stopping by.

Blessings,
Jamie
