Wow. I had no idea everyone would love the Quick and Easy Mug Cozy so much! I had several requests when creating this pattern for a travel mug cozy so I decided to write out this quick and easy pattern for you.
This pattern also features a ribbed top and a seed stitch pattern of sc, ch-1. I love the texture this adds to the fabric!
I’ve created several of these for gifts and am including a gift card to a popular local coffee shop in our town. These are always received well by my coffee and tea-loving friends and family.
Quick and easy pattern + gift card = one more gift off the list! I’m really liking the fact that I am using up my leftover smaller bits of yarn with these simple gifts!!
