Crochet Venom Coffee Cozy Pattern
Hello my nerdy crafters! So I’m back with another coffee cozy. If you recall from my last post, the Spider-Man cozy, my brother also requested a Venom cozy. I gotta say, I rather like Venom as a villain. He has a common backstory that would lead him to villainy, but what I like about him is how he went back and forth in a confusing character development, from good guy to bad guy, and really battled with himself, his innate nature, and the strange symbiote goo that combined with him to create Venom; it made for a fascinating story.
So let’s jump right into it!
- “K” and “B” hooks
- Tapestry needle
- Worsted Weight and Fine Weight yarn in desired colors
Yarns I Used:
- Loops & Threads Impeccable in black (worsted weight)
- Loops & Threads Woolike in white (fine weight)
Notes and Abbreviations
- The cozy is made in 5 pieces: the main cozy, 2 spider head pieces, and 2 spider body pieces.
- The spider legs will be embroidered on with the fine weight thread.
- The cozy is worked in back-and-forth rounds.
- In the main cozy, the first chain of each round does not count as the first stitch.
- 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.
- An increase is 2 single crochets made into 1 stitch.
- Ch(s) = chain(s)
- Sl st(s) = clip stitch(es)
- Sc(s) = single crochet(s)
- Hdc(s) = half double crochet(s)
- Dc(s) = double crochet(s)
- St(s) = stitch(es)
- Rnd(s) = round(s)
- Rep = repeat
- Inc = increase
- Sk = skip

Assemble and Embroider
Okay! You should have the main cozy and 2 sets of spider parts. Now, the Venom logo is a bit different than the Spider-Man logo. With Spider-Man, 4 front legs point towards the head and 4 back legs point towards the end of the body, just like a real spider. The Venom logo has all 8 legs stemming from the head section and zig-zagging outwards together.
With about 2 to 2 1/2 yards of white yarn on your tapestry needle, begin to attach the spider pieces onto the cozy. You will need to embroider the legs of the spider in a zig-zag line. I used a chain stitch for this, but you can use any stitch that works best for you. Turn your cozy over and stick on the second spider pieces to make the Venom logo.
Done! You now have a Venom coffee cozy. Go and enjoy some hot drinks to show it off.
