Knitted Mug Cozy

Christmas, sewing, crochet 024

If you’re like me, you have a whole cupboard full of mugs with silly sayings, little kitties, or corporate logos. I have a million of these mugs, and a million other really awesome mugs, handthrown pottery ones, and so on, but somehow, the corporate logo mugs always end up at the front of the cupboard. Fight back, I say! This clever little pattern is from the very beautiful book A Knitter’s Year by Debbie Bliss (ooh, aahh—the photo styling alone is worth a look.)

This project took me less than an hour, and used up some scraps. Thrifty! Cozy! Is this thing me, or what?
