Hi there! How are you this week? I’m doing well, my back hurts a bit from a strained muscle, but I’m doing well and starting my Fall designs! This week will be the first of the “acorn weeks.” If you follow me on IG you’ll see the acorns as they start. I hope you’re as excited as I am for these designs, because I’m so ready for Fall (as I have been for weeks if you’ve seen my other posts).
This week’s design is another super simple mug cozy design, like the Apple Mug Cozy. It’s a cute design to pull out if you have a friend who, like me, can’t wait for Fall and loves acorns… this might be perfect for them.

If you’re interested, you can purchase an ad-free downloadable pdf in my Ravelry shop for this pattern for $.50.

Materials

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

Gauge

  • 4″ = 16 scs x 16 rows

Terms/ stitches

  • RS: right side (side that faces out)
  • Ch: chainRavelry link
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet

Notes

  • This pattern is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st from the last st.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • You can replace the first row with a foundation single crochet row if you’d like to.
  • Following the first row, sc 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 parentheses means.
  • Color A is green, color B is tan, and color C is brown in the photos.
  • Also check out this post about tapestry crochet from Moogly, it’s helpful.

Finished dimensions

Height: 4.75” Width: 4.25”
