Barista Mug Cozy

If you’re like me, there isn’t anything better than a nice mug of coffee in the morning to start your day. Somedays you feel like adding a little something to that mug; no, not booze (no judgement here), something to the OUTSIDE of the mug.

The Barista Mug Cozy is just that thing you need to help dress up your mug. It can also cover up a seasonal phrase like “let it snow” in the middle of June.

The Yarn

I used some of the Sugar ‘N Cream I still have left over from my Frosting Collection to make my white mug cozy. Cotton works best but if you have partial skeins of acrylic laying around (which I’m sure you do) that will work too.

Go ahead and use whatever yarn you want. I think that’s one of the best things about this pattern; you can use any type or color of yarn you’d like.

The Barista Mug Cozy is a great gift idea too. It can be made in just about an hour and completely adjustable to any mug.

Just like with the Winter Hills Cozie, head over to your local dollar store and grab a few mugs. While at the grocery store, buy individually wrapped tea bags, hot chocolate, or sample sized bags of coffee. Throw them all together and you have the perfect gift in just a few hours and for less than $5.00 each.

Alpine Scarf

Who is ready for my first design of 2021? Well, look no further because it is here!

The Alpine Scarf is a easy to follow triangle scarf or shawl pattern. It is going to be a go-to for your winter accessory that adds that extra touch of elegance we all deserve sometimes.

The Yarn

I decided to go with a Caron Latte Cake for the yarn on the Alpine Scarf. The yarn is so soft and has a beautiful texture to it.

Once the scarf was complete all I pictured was a snowy night in a quant mountainside town. The perfect accessory to wear on a date while walking the quiet storefronts in a resort town in the mountains. I was watching a lot of holiday Hallmark movies at the time if that helps you visualize it too.
