I was out at a store at the mall near me and I cam across this mug cozy that looked this but it was cloth and I wanted to make it crochet. Seriously, I was standing there looking at this thing wrapped around a bottle of lotion and thought, “this would look SO CUTE in tapestry!” and here we are. I went home, graphed it out and started on it as soon as I could. This is also a great and quick pattern, I finished it in under and hour. Fun enough, make this in green instead of red and BAM you’ve got a St. Paddy’s cozy.
You can purchase an ad-free downloadable pdf for this pattern in my Ravelry shop for $.50.
- US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook
- Worsted/ medium/ size #4 weight yarn
- .8 oz. / 42 yards
- I used Red Heart Super Saver
- Yarn needle
- 4″ = 16 scs x 16 rows
- RS: right side (side that faces out)
- Ch: chain
- St: stitch
- Slip st: slip stitch
- Sc: single crochet
- This pattern is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st of the row.
- 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.
- This pattern is worked from the bottom up
- All of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets. The directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many single crochets to make.
- In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out this helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
- You need to know how to work into the back loop only (BLO) for this pattern.
- 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. At the end of the row, slip st into both loops of your 1st st, this will help to keep your seam straight.
- Color A is white, color B is red, color C is yellow/gold and color D is black in the photos.
