Mug Cozy & Pattern

I made this cozy for a swap so very long ago and intended to write up a pattern. But, of course, life got on it's way and I promptly forgot about the pattern because of school. But better late than never!

The actual product of the pattern has some differences, a bit different from this picture but basically the same look, just easier to crochet. The cozy actually rests a little bit lower because I found that I had a bit of a drinking problem (lol) and would dribble a tad and stain the fabric.



Hope you enjoy the pattern!

I found this pattern very useful. My mother-in-law has a bit of arthritis in her hands, so a simple knot over the handle is much easier than a button. Plus, it makes it easier to fit her variously sized mugs.

I found the pattern on Ravelry.
