The pig cup cozy pattern is very similar to my dog cup cozy pattern, he just has different ears and a button nose.

If you are interested in purchasing a cup cozy I have a few designs here.

And if you would like to buy a PDF copy of this pattern, you can find that here.


What You Need

  • 5mm and 4 mm crochet hook
  • Pink cotton yarn (less than a skein)
  • safety eyes
  • button for the nose
  • darning needle

Stitches Used

  • ch – chain
  • slst – slip stitch
  • sc – single crochet
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • dc – double crochet
  • st – stitch
  • sc dec – single crochet decrease
  • sc3tog – sc 3 together (just like a single crochet decrease, but with 3 sc)

Important Tip

The chain 1 at the beginning of each row is not counted, and do not work in it.  Slip Stitch to the first half double crochet (or single crochet) in the round, and work the first stitch of that row in the same stitch as the chain.

ch 8

Row 1 – sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 5 st, 4 sc in next st, (working in back of st’s) sc in 5 st, 2 sc in next st, slst to 1st sc (18)

Row 2 – ch 1, sc in 2 st, sc3tog, sc in 2 st, 2 sc, 2 sc, sc in 2 st, 2 sc, sc, 2 sc, sc in next 2 st, 2 sc, 2 sc, slst to 1st sc (22)

Row 3 – ch 1, sc, sc dec, sc dec, sc, 2 sc, sc, 2 sc, sc in 2 st, 2 sc, sc in 4 st, 2 sc, sc in 2, 2 sc, sc, slst to 1st sc (26)

Row 4 – ch 1, sc in each around, slst to 1st sc.  Fasten off, leaving 18″ for sewing.

Now we need to assemble all of the parts.  First, I prefer to put the button on to the muzzle, them sew the muzzle onto the cozy.  Then put on the safety eyes, last sew on the ears. If I don’t do it in that order I can’t seem to center anything.

I hope you enjoy the pig cup cozy as much as I have.
