Mug Cozy and Split Puff Stitch Tutorial




It may be August, but many of us are starting to prepare for the holiday season and upcoming markets.  This quick and easy Coffee Mug Cozy is perfect for stocking stuffers and your Craft Fair / Market table.

They can be made with any worsted weight yarn of your choice.  However, I prefer and recommend cotton for its absorbency and how well it holds up after multiple washes.





You can adjust the length of the cozy by adding or removing rows, depending on how large of a cup you will be using it with.  The width of the cozy, with suggested materials should measure approximately 3.5 inches.


Note on sizing:  when you are measuring the length you will need for your cup, leave about 1.5 inches for the button wrap and room for the handle between the ends.



Also - How adorable is that button?  I grabbed a pack of these on clearance a while back with no idea what I would use them for, but were too cute to pass by (I know you can relate)  I was so excited to finally have a little project to use one on

What You'll Need: 

  • Size F/3.75mm Crochet Hook 
  • I love this cotton yarn (or your preferred worsted weight yarn)
  • Button
  • Tapestry needle (check out this bent tip needle by Clover, I started using these a couple years ago and haven't looked back since)




Special Stitches:

Split Puff:
Yarn over, insert hook in specified stitch, pull up a loop, x2, yarn over and insert hook into next specified stitch, pull up loop, x2.  Yarn over and pull through all 9 loops.  After row 1, SP is worked into the top of the previous puff stitches.

Yarn Over, insert hook in specified stitch, pull up a loop (do this twice - 5 loops on your hook)

Yarn Over, insert hook in 2nd specified stitch, pull up a loop (do this twice, total of 9 loops on your hook - there are only 7 shown in the above photo, this was taken after the first Yarn Over and pull up a loop)

Yarn Over and pull through all loops, CH 2



Puff:
Yarn over and insert hook in designated stitch, draw up loop, x2.  Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops






Pattern Notes:


  • Ch 2  at beginning of EVEN rows counts as HDC
  • Ch 3 at the beginning of ODD rows counts as HDC + CH1
  • Repeat stitches between { }
  • Each Puff and Split Puff stitch are worked into the "eye" (or top) of the puff stitches in the previous row.

Ch 2, Puff into top of last SP, and SP over the same SP and next SP, CH 2


Repeat across and place a Puff in the last SP.

DC in turning Chain



R3: CH 3 (counts as HDC + CH 1) SP (over first Puff and next SP), {CH 2, SP (over same SP and next SP)}. repeat across to last SP, SP (over same SP and Puff) Ch 1, DC in 2nd CH of turning chain

CH 3, SP (over first Puff and next SP)

End of Row 3, Chain 1 and DC in 2nd stitch of turning chain


Repeat rows 2 and 3 until desired length.




Ch1, do not turn - evenly space SC stitches along the length of the cozy, when you get the row of SC we started with, SC in the next 9 stitches, ch 20, sk1 sc, sc across.

Continue around the cozy until you get the first SC from the border, sl st to join.


Sew button between the last and second to last row of the pattern repeat - I suggest testing this placement first just in case you have to make any adjustments.

If you know me, or follow me on social media you'll know that gaming is one of the few things I do as much as I crochet.  Recently, they remastered and released the first 3 Spyro games - and let me tell you, this girl has gotten in her Spyro time.  

A few nights ago, in a complete crochet slump, I spent the night playing the third installment, Spyro: Year of the Dragon - when the inspiration hit me.  I had chased down an Egg Thief.  He bobbed, I weaved (flew off a cliff, it happens).  When i caught him, an adorable baby dragon popped out of the egg.   I knew I needed 1,…

They say that fashion cycles, sometimes this is a terrible idea (stonewashed jeans should never, ever be a thing again), but sometimes its a good thing, like now, when scrunchies make their come back.





This scrunchie pattern is ridiculously easy.  I'm not even sure we can call it pattern - its more of a How To.

First, lets talk about the yarn.  Bernat Velvet Yarn, this stuff is AMAZING.  If you haven't gotten your hands on some, even if you aren't making scrunchies, I recommend it.  Just keep some on hand to touch and caress every once in a while.  You don't even have to make anything with it.



This yarn is Bulky weight (5) and calls for a 6.5mm crochet hook.  Its much thinner, and softer, than their blanket yarn.  However, I will note that because of the texture of…

It's officially winter here in New England, and mother nature has come through with that cold air we never seem to get used to.  It's a whopping 11 degrees out currently, and my ears are cold just thinking about it!

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…
