My grandmother was an amazing artist with a crochet hook. I’ve never been all that great at it since I tend to keep my stitches rather tight, but I decided to go ahead and start with something small to get myself back in practice with crocheting. Since my husband and I drink so much coffee, I decided to make a mug cozy. The pattern that I used can be found on Craftsy.com (p.s. I love this site for patterns. So many free ones 🙂 ). It was super easy to make and the directions were really easy to follow. The one I made is pictured above with the red mug and blue cozy. I’m kind of proud of it since I got it on the first try. I think it’s cute and it really helps my husband to not burn his hand on the mugs that don’t have finger holes big enough for his fingers; plus it doubles as a coaster! What’s not to love about that? Hope you enjoy and give it a shot 🙂
