Crochet Spider-Man Coffee Cozy Pattern

The Amazing Spider-Man

Hello everyone! I’m back with a couple of new cozy patterns for you all. As much as I love making the Star Wars coffee cozy patterns, and there is certainly no shortage in those characters, I’ve decided to do a set of comic book characters this time. So I want to my source of comic book inspiration, my big brother, and asked which characters he’d like to have as cozies. The first things he said were a Spider-Man and Venom cozies.

How cool is that?!

Let’s Start With The Web-slinger

Now, I’ve made a Spider-Man logo pattern before for another project (you can find that here), which can be used for the cozies if you’d like, but it seemed to crowd the cozy a bit so I made a new version of the logo for this project. Your choice though.

Let’s jump right into it, shall we?

Materials:

  • “K” and “B” hooks

  3. The cozy is worked in back-and-forth rounds.
  4. In the main cozy, the first chain of each round does not count as the first stitch.
  5. The numbers in the brackets at the end of the instructions note the number of stitches that need to be in that round upon completion.
  6. An increase is 2 single crochets made into 1 stitch.

Assemble and Embroider

With your cozy done and your spider parts ready, get about 2 to 2 1/2 yards of black yarn on your tapestry needle. This will be for attaching the black spider to the front of the cozy and embroidering the legs. First, stick on the black head and body onto the front of your cozy. Centered around the head, you’ll use the same black fine yarn to form the legs of the spider logo. I used chain stitches to create the legs, but you can use whichever stitch works best for you.

Next, load your tapestry needle with about 2 to 2 1/2 yards of red yarn. On the back of the main cozy, attach the red head and body to the blue section. Again, centered around the head, you’ll use the red yarn to stitch on the legs of the spider logo. End off and weave in all your ends.

The End

And you’re done! You now have a Spider-Man coffee cozy. I know the part with the legs takes forever, but it’s so worth it to have a cool looking logo. Now go forth and have hot drinks!
