Waistcoat Hugger Coffee Cozy Crochet Pattern

Waistcoat Hugger Coffee Cozy Pattern

I was happily making coffee cozies for International Coffee Day while sipping on my brew when I realized that my cozies were predominantly girly. This is my response to that challenge. I love the result! This pattern takes longer than the typical cozy pattern but it looks unique and would be perfect as a gift to anyone – well worth the extra time. Enjoy, share, and thanks for giving credit back to this pattern.
