Along with millions of others here in Midwest USA, I’m burrowing in for Snowpocalypse Pt. 4 tonight! (Seriously, will this crazy winter EVER give us a break?) While most people rushed to the grocery store this afternoon to empty the bread and milk aisles (as is tradition in our area whenever rough weather is imminent), Irushed to Hobby Lobby to grab some yarn to keep me busy over the next few days while my boys and I are snowed in.

Snowstorms aside, it’s time to switch gears to the season of love… Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! So, here’s a cute little love-themed mug cozy  you can whip up quickly to wrap around your hot or cold drinks. This cozy has a button closure so it will work on both standard sized mugs AND your favorite to-go beverage.

This cozy uses a variation of the HDC, called HDC Ribbing. I abbreviate it as “RibHDC” because I can’t for the life of me find an official abbreviation for it. (If you know what it should be, let me know in the comments!)

You can take a look at the tutorial here. It’s a very simple little trick to master and gives a beautiful faux knit look. It can only be done on the HDC stitch, as you’ll see in the tutorial. Give it a try!

Heart Applique

vdaymugcozy-heart

Cut a heart out of a piece of felt, about 1.5″ high x 1.5″ wide. (I eyeballed mine, but if you aren’t comfortable with that, you can find some free clipart, print it and cut out, and trace it onto your felt.) Using thread the same color as your cozy, sew around the edges as shown.
