Fall is in the air...already. Although I am a eternal lover of fun in the sun, the slower paced, cozy days of autumn sound pretty darn good right now. I have pulled out the sweaters, bought some new slippers and picked up some yarn to start my winter crochet projects.
First on the list are these adorable coffee mug cozy's. I have been enamored by them for some time and decided this will make a great first project. If you are a beginner at crocheting this is perfect for you. Seasoned professionals, feel free to add you own artistic twist!
Let's get to the pattern...
Row 1: CH 22, SL ST into first CH to form a loop (be careful not to twist)
Row 2: CH1, HDC in each CH around, SL ST into the beginning CH1 space (22 HDCs)
Row 3: CH1, turn work (I like to turn work so that the pattern looks like it would if it were crocheted flat), HDC in each HDC around, SL ST into the beginning CH1 space (22 HDCs)
Row 4 - 6: Continue Row 3, finish off
CH = Chain
HDC = Half Double Crochet
SL ST = Slip Stitch
Crochet patterns can be so intimidating but, once you get the hang of it, they are really quite simple. Now that I have the basic sleeve mastered, I am ready to try my hand at these guys:
How great would these be for homemade gifts? Teachers, grandparents...me, so many people would love to reciveve this unique thoughtful craft!
Have you made a coffee mug cozy, we would love to see a picture!
