Crochet Captain America Coffee Cozy Pattern

Crochet Captain America Coffee Cozy Pattern

Hello again my crafty creators! As part of my Marvel crochet binge, I’m made a Captain America coffee cozy pattern for you all. If you’ve read my other coffee cozy posts in the last weeks, you’ll know that I’m making these on my big brother’s request. As a comic book fan, like my brother, I found this crafty endeavor totally worthwhile. Throughout all the years of costumes to sift through for this cozy, there were a few details that seemed to remain relatively similar as the time passed. Stars and Stripes! So I went with the early Jack Kirby version of the costume where the shield first became round instead of the triangular one.

Notes to Start

Take a moment to review these notes before you begin the pattern. It’ll give you a general overview of what to expect and what you might encounter.

Expect the yarn to get a tad tangled!

Notes:

  1. This pattern will be worked in rows for the cozy and in rounds for the Captain America shield.
  2. The cozy will be worked in two pieces, and the details will be embroidered.
  3. Numbers at the end of the instructions: In brackets “[ ]” will be the total stitch count for that row/round.
  4. Keep an eye out for color changes; you’ll need to keep all working yarn strands on one side of the finished cozy to hide them (the inside of the cozy)   {side note: I used both ends of my blue yarn on both ends to make it easier to switch to blue when needed.}
  5. The first chain in each row/round does not count as your first stitch, so don’t skip your first stitch.
  6. The star on the shield and the cozy are going to be embroidered on. {side note: If your shield comes out wider than your cozy, it’s okay if it overlaps the top and bottom edges. Just stitch up the sides to attach the shield and let the top and bottom overlap; it’ll look when Captain America wears the shield on his back.}

Embroidered Stars/Rim:

First, we’ll do the star on the cozy. This will be done on one of the blue rims of the cozy. Using about 1 yard of white yarn, use the tapestry needle to make the outline of a star (point up), then fill in the star, trying to keep its shape.

Next, we’ll do the star on the shield. Using the white yarn left over from the first star, make the outline of a star in the center of the shield, keeping within the blue center. Then fill in the star, trying to keep its shape.
