Crochet Pattern: Pumpkin Mug Cozy

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on October 23rd, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 1 Comment
With the arrival of autumn, everything is orange, brown and yellow, with a smidgen of green. Personally, my favorite color palette. You see it in the trees and the fields, and we celebrate the season with adding these same colors to our décor. Wrap you favorite mug in this autumn inspired cozy to add to the festive spirit. With a band of single crochet and a pumpkin applique practically worked in one round, it’s very simple and works up quick. For another mug cozy, check out last weeks Snowflake Mug Cozy.

Here is one using some simple stitches and some wintry embellishments! The pattern is made to fit an average size mug, but squeeze it over a taller mug and you might like it just as well.

With crochet thread and seed beads, this eyewear retainer will keep your glasses handy with personality. The fine chains of crochet hold the straps on the earpiece without the need of rubber to keep them in place. Experimenting with size hook and thread will give you different results, if you prefer a thinner strap. Don’t forget to add more chains if using smaller thread. Enjoy this pattern and let me know your ideas! Beaded Eyewear Retainer

Sometimes the easiest projects are the most enjoyable to make because of their simplicity. This scarf is a great way to show off your favorite chunky yarn, as well as work with a super large hook for a change. The scarf in the picture was made with Hometown USA in colors Washington Denim and Dallas Grey, both wonderful colors from a lovely yarn. For an extra chunky scarf, double the amount of chains. You can also add more chains, and knots, to give it your own personal flair. As always, have fun! Chunky Chain Scarf

Like its predecessor (the Giselle Earrings) this necklace exhibits charm and delicacy on its wearer. Make it in your favorite crochet thread and complement it with your choice of beads. The beauty of this pattern is that it works up quick and easy. If you like, use a little craft glue to stiffen the ends of the thread to prevent fraying after wear. Giselle Necklace1
