Keep your coffee and tea hot, but your hands not too toasty with this simple mug cozy! The multicolor yarn will make different patterns as you crochet, so each cozy will be unique. Then you can choose between five shapes of wooden buttons to finish the piece with even more personalization. I think these make great small gifts, stocking stuffers, and office gifts.

    Begin by chaining 10, or long enough to cover ¾ of your mug’s height.
  3. Image or video 
    Turn the chain, and single crochet into each stitch. Once you reach the end turn again and continue to make single crochet rows until your piece is long enough to wrap around your mug with about an inch to spare.
  4. Image or video 
    For the final row, single crochet into the first 5 stitches, then chain 16 and single crochet into the last 5 stitches to form the button loop. Cut your yarn and weave in the ends.
  5. Image or video 
    With your yarn needle, attach a button on the beginning end of the cozy. The button should be placed so that when the loop goes over it, the cozy fits securely around the mug.

    You can make a set to keep, or give them away as gifts to the coffee and tea lovers!
