Happy new year everyone!! I wish you luck, love and creativity and keep in mind that it’s happy people who make happy homes! 😉 I’m so glad that after such a long break (oh yes, it was long indeed!) I got to write for my baby blog again. 🙂
This is the first post of 2013 and I proudly present you a super-easy pattern for a wonderful cozy. After the holidays that made our hearts warmer, our favorite coffee will also be kept warm with the help of this knit accessory. Who wants to try it?
WHAT YOU NEED:
Yarn for 6mm-sized knitting needles
A pair of 6mm-sized knitting needles
A pair of scissors
Take your favorite coffee mug and measure its circumference. Cast on as many stitches as the cm of the circumference are. Keep in mind that, for the sake of the pattern, the number of stitches should be a multiple of 4. As in my case the circumference was 27 cm, I opted for a cast-on of 28 stitches instead (the closest I could get) in order to serve my pattern. Then, make a 4×4 rib stitch for the next 3 rounds. Make garter stitch for the next 2 rounds. At the next round, make one decrease every 7 stitches (I knitted two together). At the next round work on garter stitch again and finish off your pattern by making a 4×4 rib stitch for the next 3 rounds. Bind off.
Make two threads at the one end of your piece like this and sew two buttons. I picked a turquoise and a white one.
Isn’t it cute?
You can make various combinations of colors depending on the color of your mug. I hope you like it. I know i do!
