Puff Stitch Mug Cozy

Here is my pattern for a mug cozy. It’s crocheted up with the same stitch as was used in the placemat, dishcloth and coaster patterns.

Why use a mug cozy? Because it serves as a coaster as well as an insulator to help keep your cup of tea (or coffee) nice and warm. And what I really like about it is that you don’t have to remember to place the mug on a coaster after each sip. Just slip the cup into the cozy and away you go.

I attached a crocheted button to help keep the cozy in place, but any button will work if you’d rather have a smaller or fancier one.

The Yarn

Bernat Handicrafter Cotton is a good choice, but any similar yarn will work with this. I used leftovers from a big ball.

The Stitch Pattern

This pattern is worked with a slanted puff stitch for a nice thick fabric and pretty textures.
