My husband is a huge Star Wars fan and has watched the movies with our two daughters many times. Of course, their favorite character is Princess Leia and that is how the crochet Princess Leia Cup cozy pattern was born! This cozy was really fun to make, especially her adorable hair!! She would make the perfect gift for any Star Wars fan! I plan to do more Star Wars themed crochet cozies in the future. If you have an idea let me know! I love getting inspiration from my fans! My crochet Yoda cup cozy pattern is now available! Click here if you would like to make a cute companion for Leia!
I use a 4.0 mm crochet hook for almost all of my cozy patterns. I received that hook as a gift and have been hoping to replace it for some time as mine has some wear and tear. My local craft store only sells the inline style in that size but I prefer tapered. I have found some good replacements here if you find yourself in the same predicament! For the crochet Princess Leia cozy, I used Lily Sugar ‘n Cream in white, camomile, and warm brown. The gray belt is done with Caron Simply Soft in heathers.

Please send pics of your finished cozies, I love seeing what you all come up with.
