Crochet Mug Cozy Pattern {Stash-Busting Project!}


Make an easy crochet mug cosy with this easy pattern for beginners.

The pattern requires basic crochet knowledge, creating a chain and using double crochet for each stitch.

I made this using cotton yarn in two colours and a 4 mm (US G/6) hook. I chose neutral coloured cotton from Rico yarn, in nature (white) and clay (brown).

I then added a square cut wooden button to fasten the cosy around the mug. You can, of course, us any colour combinations and buttons.
