Free Crochet Pattern - Crochet Mug Cosy

Theodora Goes Wild

I've seen lots of mug cosies around, and thought I would make one for myself. Having then made a few more as gifts I thought I would share the pattern with you.

It is a very easy pattern to follow, (it had to be really as I am still by no means an expert in crochet)! I used a chunky weight yarn, as it works up really quickly and keeps it's shape. I used Robin Chunky, a 100% acrylic yarn. It fits most standard mugs. The one below is an American diner style mug.

The version above has a button in a matching yarn. For the first one I used a plastic button, (pic below). I soon realised if I wanted to throw it in the washing machine, I should use the same yarn. For a smaller button you could use an Aran weight yarn, but remember to make your button loop slightly shorter. The pattern for the button is based on a free one from

yarnforward.com

Thank you Yarn Forward.
