As promised, here’s another free crochet pattern. Just like the dishcloth pattern I posted a few weeks ago, this one is pretty simple and only uses a little bit of yarn. I love mug cozies, they dress up a plain coffee cups and help to keep the coffee warm longer. They also make a nice gift…I made some for teacher gifts last year and included the mug as well.
Skill level: Easy
- ch – chain
- sc – single crochet
- dc – double crochet
- sk – skip
- Cotton worsted weight yarn – 50g (enough to make 4 cozies)
- Crochet hook – Size 8/5.00mm
- Blunt needle
Gauge: Not important
Row 1: 1sc 1dc in second ch from hook, *sk next ch, 1sc 1dc in next ch, rep from * to end of row, ch1 turn.
Row 2: *Sk next st, 1sc 1dc in next st, rep from * to end of row, ch 1 turn.
Rep Row 2 until work measures 8″ from beg.
Next row: Sk 1st st, sl st in the next 2 sts, 1 hdc in each of the next 4 sts, turn ch1.
You will now be woking on these 4 sts to make button hole strip.
Next row: 1 hdc in each st, ch1 turn.
Rep last row until button hole strip measures 2″.
Next row: 1 hdc in 1st st, ch 2 and sk next 2 sts, 1 hdc in last st.
Work sc border evenly around, working 3 sc in corners and 2 sc into ch2 button hole space. Join with a ss in 1st sc.
Fasten off and weave in ends. Sew on button.
And, if you’d rather purchase this cozy already made, it’s available here. Hope you like this pattern!
