Who doesn’t want a baby Yoda drink cozy? This crochet baby Yoda drink cozy was created out of love for the most adorable Star Wars character and of course a need for a new drink cozy.
I was inspired by the shot of baby Yoda holding a cup in one of the Mandalorian episodes. If you’ve seen baby Yoda memes, you know which shot I’m talking about. Making this cozy was really fun and I just love how it turned out – his sweet face just melts my heart every time.
If you make this pattern I would love to know what you thought and if you come across any errors I would also love to know!
Crochet Baby Yoda Drink Cozy

- Worsted weight (4) acrylic yarn, such as Bernat Super Value in:
- Fern for the head, ears, and hands
- Oatmeal for the robe
- True Red for the heart
- 3.75mm crochet hook
- 8mm safety eyes or buttons*
- Yarn needle
- Sewing needle and thread
*Buttons and safety eyes are a choking hazard for children under the age of 3. An alternative is to embroider the eyes or use felt.
This cozy fits a 473ml beverage can. It’s a tad too tall for a shorter 355ml can but it certainly won’t prevent you from enjoying both your drink and the cuteness of the cozy.
If you’d like to make this big enough for a mason jar, check out my Bear Mason Jar Cozy pattern as a reference for the stitch count.
The cozy is made up of several parts:
- The robe is a tube shape worked in continuous rounds.
- The sleeves are hollow tubes worked in joined rows.
- The hands are created by making a series of chains.
- The head is a half circle with a few horizontal rows worked into the bottom edge for easier sewing to the body.
- The ears are created by working stitches into the top and bottom loops of the foundation chain.
- The heart was made using a variation of this pattern https://www.neacreates.com/pattern/perfect-crochet-heart/

You can assemble this in any order you like but I found this order to be the least headache-inducing.
- Sew the hands to the inside of the sleeves. I only sewed the hands to inside front so there would be a loose gap appearance to the sleeves.
- Sew each hand onto the heart with the needle and thread.
- Fold the robe collar down (Rounds 23 and 24) and pin down with a few stitches.
- With the hands already placed on the heart and collar folded down it’s easier to sew the sleeves to the robe.
- Sew the head to the body.
- Sew the ears to the head.
- Attach the eyes.
Your new beverage cozy is ready for cute action!
