This is my free pattern for how to make an amigurumi Coffee Cup! It’s the same size as a regular coffee cup and there’s lots of scope for you to decorate it however you want. This pattern is a great introduction to amigurumi techniques and it is suitable for a beginner crocheter.
This pattern is tech edited and tested.
