Louise Smith designed this set of Rainbow Mug Hugs in Simply Crochet issue 40, and now we’re giving the pattern away as our Christmas gift to you!
From the start of Christmas Eve until 11.59pm on Sunday 1st January 2017 you can download the pattern free, on Ravelry here.
They’re worked in four shades of Rowan Pure Wool Worsted, and Louise’s designs used fabulously retro shades – but you could easily pick whichever colours suit your colour scheme. Using trebles, half trebles and double crochet they’ll work up quickly, and you can adjust the length of the two fastening button loops so your cosy will fit comfortably around your chosen cup. Remember we use UK crochet terms, so if you need a conversion from US terms use our chart here.
They’re great if you’re ready to take the next step from Granny squares, or want a quick project to use up small amounts of yarn left over from other patterns.
So enjoy the patterns, and Merry Christmas from Simply Crochet.
