Up until I made the Hot Stuff Trivet did you know that I used one of the two pot holders we have to put my hot items onto to protect my counters? It is fine and dandy when I only have one pot or dish, but when I have multiple items coming out of the oven at the same time (like on holidays) things can get a little dicey.

I don’t recommend using the Hot Stuff Trivet as pot holder though. I don’t think that it is thick enough to protect your hands from the dishes right from the oven.

The Yarn

Remember back in July 2020 when I released the Frosting Collection? I had purchased the cone of Lily’s Sugar ‘n’ Cream to make sure I had enough yarn to make all the dishcloths. I’m still working through the cone! Why go out and buy more cotton yarn when I have plenty left over.

I don’t have a whole lot more left to go before I’ve used it all. I saved myself a lot of money by buying it the way I did. If you plan on making a lot of items using cotton, I recommend buying a cone of it.

Frozen Treat Cozy

We’ve all been there, we’re eating our premium ice cream right out of the pint container and our hands are freezing. Well, look no further than the Frozen Treat Cozy to help you out!

The best part about the Frozen Treat Cozy is that it fits many of the reusable and single use cup you get at local coffee shops too. You’ll be able to see how versatile the cozy can be below.

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.

The Yarn

I used Sugar ‘n Cream 100% cotton yarn. The one I featured on this Instagram Reel (link below) is in the colorway “Holiday Stripes.” I separated the skein into all its colors to get them to line up the way I wanted.
