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 3, SP (over first Puff and next SP)

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,…

Some of you may be familiar with Sammy's friend, Tony Smokes (below).  Tony is available as a purchase only pattern on my Etsy Shop.  Both Tony and Sammy came to me in a moment of ... inspiration 😅but it took a while before I put hook to yarn and completed the pattern for Sammy.  I'm so happy I did, and that I get to share this with you all for free.

Easy Crochet Decoy Wasp / Hornets Nest

With Spring here and Summer making their return, so are Wasps and Hornets.  By now, we all know how important all species of bees are. While some may not be as cute and fuzzy as others, it's important we do what we can to coexist with them outside and not cause them harm.  This decoy nest will deter Wasps and Hornets who create hanging nests from making their home on your porch or in your yard.  This is great and safe alternative to sprays and pesticides.

Learn to make Cat Butt Coasters!

To purchase a PDF, add free version of this pattern, you can do that via THIS LINK at a very low price.    

If there's one thing all cat lovers know to be true, it's that at a cat will ALWAYS present, and offer you their butt, and you have no choice but to accept.   That was the inspiration for this fun and quick pattern.

For this project, I decided to use Lily Sugar 'N Cream 100% Cotton Yarn in Coral Rose and Overcast.  I chose this yarn because it's an affordable sturdy cotton yarn that you can throw in the wash over and over again.  If you wish, you can substitute any other worsted weight cotton yarn you prefer

This a great project for those left over balls of yarn that aren't quite big enough to make much of anything with.  You can mix and match all sort of colors to create a unique look and even replicate your own cat's butt!

These are also great if you upcoming craft shows and fairs.
