This cup cozy is knit in the popular waffle stitch pattern of the Boxy Dishcloth. This time, a superwash merino wool is used for warmth, while also making it machine washable for any spills!

Knit the boxy cozy in the regular size for medium to large cups, or the large size for large to extra large cups.


Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport (100% superwash merino wool; 136 yd [125 m]/1.75 oz [50 g]). Approximately 25 yards are required for the regular size cozy and 32 yards for large. Shown here in #818 – brown, and #1946 – gray.


US size 6 [4.0 mm] double pointed needles (dpns) or size needed to obtain gauge.


22 sts and 34 rnds = 4″ [10 cm] in waffle stitch pattern worked in the round.


Regular size cozy = 3 1/4 in. tall, unstretched.
Large cozy = 4 1/4 in. tall, unstretched.
Both cozies fit most common hot drink cups.

  1. Fyi – your pattern says K2, p1 to end on all 3 rows.
    I think you wanted p2, k1 on the 2nd row?
    Thank you for sharing this though – I am enjoying it 🙂
