Pumpkin Spice and Vanilla Catpuccinos - Free Pattern

Lets Brew Up Some Catpuccinos

 

I'm not sure how it happened, but we're more than halfway through October!  This time of year always goes by way too quickly - I wish I could bottle up Fall in New England and keep it forever!   One of the best parts of fall is all things Pumpkin Spice and warm drinks, so, I brought the two together for this adorable pattern!   Try out the Vanilla Catpuccino for year round fun ๐Ÿ‘

This body of this pattern is made in one piece which is great for beginners since there is minimal sewing involved!  I will include the pattern for the Witches hat as well as the Bow.  Grab your cappuccino's and lets get started :)

Complete Mug Handle

Attach handle at base of mug (Row 6) and between rows 12 and 13, giving it a slight curve so it mimics a handle on a mug (shown below).  If you are using cardboard for your base, trace the bottom of the mug to get the correct size and place cardboard snugly in the bottom of the mug

For those of you who aren't familiar with a Nor'Easter, consider yourself lucky.  It's a storm that forms off the coast of the North Eastern United States (I'm in the Boston area). Those of us ne…
