Nothing better than having lots of hot drinks on hot days, and to make these moments even more charming, how about investing in a coffee mug cozy? Sipping on a hot chocolate and holding it to warm your hands and not letting the hot chocolate get cold has a comforting feeling. In addition to making your dishes look even more interesting, they protect your fingers in case you bump them into the cup with very hot liquid.
I didn’t know about this item, it’s been a while since it entered my daily life. As soon as I found this pattern, I made a point of testing and seeing how it looks. It’s easy to do, it doesn’t need much skill. If you’ve never crocheted, it’s a great piece to start with. The stitch is simple and the piece is small.
When I started to crochet, small pieces were the ones I made the most. It’s faster to finish the piece, and whenever it’s done, we’re very happy and proud of our work. This motivates and excites me to continue and have several covers ready. You can assemble kits, so the whole family gets protected, beautiful and personalized mugs.
