By day, I'm a mild-mannered museum worker, laboring for truth, justice, and item-level location tracking. By night, I'm an obsessive crocheter who falls asleep thinking about charts and colorways and stripe patterns.
When I first started crocheting, I spent a lot of time buying into the myths about what crochet could and couldn't do (and worse, about what I couldn't and couldn't do). Several uninspired scarves and a disastrous ripple afghan later, I decided that was a boring attitude to take, and I'd have a lot more fun (and produce better work) if I just made what I wanted to make and figured it out as I went along. Several years down the road, I now love crochet more than ever, and I'm so excited to be along for the ride as it goes in new and interesting directions.
My rock band will be called the Yarn-Bombing Hooligans. I don't expect that I will survive the zombie apocalypse.
An easy pattern for a crocheted coffee cup/travel mug cozy--a cute and reusable alternative to the disposable cardboard sleeves you find in coffee shops. (Not to mention, it's a great way to show off your crafty spirit as you go through the day!) The cushy stitching will insulate your hands and absorb any drips or condensation, plus it can be thrown in the wash and used again and again.
This pattern features staggered increases, which prevent the "peaks" that sometimes form when crocheting in the round.
This pattern is written using standard American English crochet terms and abbreviations.
You're welcome to sell what you make from this pattern, though I would appreciate credit as the pattern designer. You may NOT sell, copy, or otherwise redistribute the pattern itself, in either electronic or hard-copy form.
Gauge is not critical for this project--as long as it fits your coffee cup, it's the right size!
