Star Wars Crochet Cozy Series – Part 8 – C3PO
Crochet C3PO Coffee Cozy Pattern
Hello fellow geek crafters! I am adding more coffee cozies to the Star Wars cozy series a little at a time. It has been slow going all this time, crocheting when I can, because my joints are just being stubbornly painful. But not to worry! I’m more stubborn than the pain…most days. This week’s cozy is going to be the awesome, nervous droid: C3PO! I am going to jump right into it! ((Be sure to click on the image below to go to the source and check out C3PO’s profile on the Star Wars website.))
- Sizes “K” and “G” hooks
- Worsted Weight yarn in desired colors
- Tapestry needle
Yarns I Used:
- Caron Simply Soft in black
- Big Twist Premium in premium yellow (yellow)
- Caron Simply Soft in harvest red (red)
Notes and Abbreviations
- St(s) = stitch(es)
- Ch(s) = chain(s)
- Sl st = slip stitch
- Sc(s) = single crochet(s)
- Dc(s) = double crochet(s)
- Rep = repeat
- Sk = skip
- Rnd(s) = round(s)
- FLO = front loop only
- This cozy is made in 2 separate pieces: the cozy (body) and the circle plate.
- Use the “K” hook for the main cozy and the “G” hook for the other piece.
- Numbers at the end of the instructions: In square brackets “[ ]” will be the total stitch count for that row/round.
- The first chain in each row/round does not count as your first stitch, so don’t skip your first stitch.
- The tapestry needle will be used to embroider the wires on the black abdominal portion of the cozy.
- To make the wires, you’ll use yellow and red yarn, but you can use any color that you see on the C3PO costumes throughout the film series; I’ve seen white and green used as well.

Assemble and Embroider
At this point you should have two main pieces: the main cozy and the chest plate. With about 1 1/2 to 2 yards of yellow yarn, center your chest plate on the cozy, making sure the 3 dcs are lined up like the C3PO picture above, and stitch it on to your cozy.
Now time to embroider the wires on the black abdomen area. Using what’s left of the yellow yarn, attach it to the inside of the cozy at the top lining of the black portion. From her you can use a backstitch to create the line of wires and cables. Go all the way around, leaving space for the red yarn-wires too.
Then with 1 to 1 1/2 yards of red yarn use the same backstitch to create the new line of cables over the black section.
And you’re done! Simple enough, right? Go forth and enjoy a hot drink with your new C3PO cozy. Be sure to leave me a comment or any questions below. You can also find me on the Family Craft Studio facebook, instagram, and tumblr. Happy crafting!
