Crochet Pattern: Snowflake Mug Cozy

By Amy Yarbrough – 7 Comments
The cool days are coming, or already here for some, which means that hot tea in the morning is even more necessary than before, or so we tea drinkers would have you believe. Mug cozies are the funnest way to accessorize your mug because you can design them any way you might choose. There are a handful of ways to make them, but all are very simple and enjoyable. 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.
