I thought I"d crochet some mug cosies as little Christmas presents with some more wool from the stash. They are very simple to make. First make a chain long enough to go around the edge of the base of the mug and then work enough rows of half dc (UK) to reach nearly the top edge (must leave room for drinking without getting a mouthful of frizzy yarn). Join with 2 chain to the other edge and work 2 rounds of single crochet (UK) up the side, around the top and down the side to give it a border. On the second time around the edge I crocheted a 15 chain loop which would reach over the handle of the mug and affix to a button on the other side.
|I worked about 10 rows of half double crochet.|
Speaking of Christmas, do I throw away this yarn cone or keep it? I thought it would do nicely for a crocheted Christmas tree.
