I've seen all sorts of beautiful mug cosies on my travels round blog world and then recently, on a visit to the Owl and Sewing Cat in Eastbourne I saw one in real life, which was crocheted. Having seen it close up I decided to have a go at counterfeiting it! As I'm a fairly novice crocheter, this is the kind of adventure I can cope with!
Using my delicious wool from The Fluffatorium in Dorking, rooster almerino dp, and a size 4 hook I cast on enough stitches to go round one of my mugs and started crocheting! Eureka! It works and now, with the addition of one button, I have a mug cosy all of my own - a bit wobbly but hey!!.
There are other patterns I like, particularly a cable knitted one, but I don't have a pattern for that, and I'm not such a good knitter as to be able to make it up, so I'll stick to this one for now, and maybe a few variations for friends and family. But if anyone could direct me to a pattern??
