STRIPED MUG COZY
Finished Size: About 10” long (not including small “bridge” connector piece) and 3” tall. Fits standard 10-11” circumference mugs.
Gauge: 9 rows of 8 SC each will make a 2” square
Stitches Used: Ch, SC, Sl St
Yarn: Approx. .7oz of your favorite lighter-medium worsted weight yarn (I used Bernat Satin in “Lagoon”).
Button: One button, 1” diameter
Hook: Size H (5.00mm)
Notions: Yarn needle for weaving in ends. You may sew button on with yarn and appropriately sized needle, or you may use a needle and appropriately colored thread.
Notes Pattern is written in American standard terms. Pattern is worked in repeating groups of two rows, alternating colors. You do not need to cut the yarn as you go; carry it up to the next time you use it. The edging will hide the carried yarn. In the photo above, Color A = white and Color B = blue.
Row 1: With Color A, SC in 2nd Ch from hook; SC in each St across (10 SC)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. SC in each St across (10 SC)
Row 3: Attach Color B. Ch 1, turn. SC in each St across (10 SC)
Row 4: Ch 1, turn. SC in each St across (10 SC)
Row 5: Switch to Color A. Ch 1, turn. SC in each St across (10 SC)
Row 6: Ch 1, turn. SC in each St across (10 SC)
Row 7: Switch to Color B. Ch 1, turn. SC in each St across (10 SC)
Row 8: Ch 1, turn. SC in each St across (10 SC)
Rows 9-38: Repeat instructions for Rows 5-8. You will end on Color A. Continue to Edging.
Edging, Button Loop & Bridge
Switch to Color B (you no longer need Color A). Ch 1; turn. SC in next 9 Sts. 2 SC in next (corner) St. Working along first long edge, SC evenly across. (HINT: Adding a SC for every row will result in an overcrowded edging. So instead, add 2 SCs in each white section, and 1 in each blue section across.) After your SC into the corner, Ch 18. Sl St back into the same corner St to form a loop. SC across short edge. Ch 4. Bring your cozy around (as though it’s wrapped around an imaginary mug) and Sl St to the corner of the opposite end of the cozy (see photo) to form a “bridge”. SC back across the bridge. Continue to SC evenly across the remaining long edge (see HINT above). Join with a Sl St to the bridge (see photo). Fasten off; weave in ends.
Using yarn or thread of your choice, attach 1” button to cozy on the opposite end from the buttonhole loop. The center of the button should sit 3/4” from the short edge of the cozy, and 3/4” from the top (long) edge.

I love this pattern it is perfect for my mom since she drinks a cup of tea in the morning on her porch !!!!
You are awesome I love your patterns especially the mug coat my cup tea alway’s goes cold too quickly, I think I will make some today. I am Australian,and I had 4 Boys that are all grown up now and have kids themselve’s. It did get a bit Hectic when they were young and growing up but I would change anything.Thank you for the free patterns you are so clever. Joy
I love this pattern and would like to make it larger to fit my husband’s and my glass mug, which is about 12ounces, and has a larger handle. Is this possible? Thanks so much. I appreciate you sharing your talents!
It’s possible, if you’re ok with eyeballing it. It would probably just involve more rows and perhaps a couple extra stitches per row.
