I love coffee! And that’s probably already been pretty clear from the last year of posts here on the blog, lots of comments about it and also mug cozies. So, with that idea in mind, I decided to have some fun with this week’s mug cozy, it’s all about coffee!
Also, I’m  having fun with graphing letters so that’s why I wanted to try this out. I have an idea for a wall hanging that will involve coffee too! Just wait and see what that’ll be.

Materials:

  • Worsted/ medium/ #4 weight yarn
  • US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle

Gauge: 

  • 4.5” x 4.5” = 19 dcs x 9 rows

Terms/ stitches used:Ravelry link

Notes:

  • The pattern is worked in the round with a slip st into the first stitch into the last.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the rows does not count as a stitch.
  • You will need to know how to work into the back loop only for this pattern, the sides are worked into the back loop only.
  • If you don’t work this pattern in the back loop only, it might end up leaning. You can block the finished item to make it lean less.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up
  • All of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets, because of this the sides portion (where all the color changes are) only tells you how many stitches to do in what color, this is what the number in the parenthesis means.
  • Rather than changing, cutting, and weaving in the ends of all the colors, the yarn is carried through the bags in the photos. Here’s a great tutorial on color changes. In this pattern, the active yarn is worked over the inactive.
  • Also check out this post about tapestry crochet from Moogly, it’s helpful.
  • Color A is green, Color B is white, and Color C is black.
  • If this pattern turns out a bit small, I’d go up a hook size. And I suggest trying out the cozy on an empty mug before you go for a full, hot cup.
  • The first st is worked into the same st as the join.
