Candy Cane Striped Mug Cozy – Free Crochet Pattern

Holiday Stashdown Crochet-a-long 2016 Edition | www.thestitchinmommy.com

Welcome to the Holiday Stashdown CAL 2016 Edition!

I am so excited to be participating in this year’s Holiday Stashdown CAL! This week, I have a super quick and easy project that makes a great last-minute gift. My Candy Cane Striped Mug Cozy takes less than 2 hours to make and can be made with any yarn in your stash! You can swap the candy cane colors for school colors to make a varsity mug cozy or change it out for the colors of the rainbow for something more bright and cheerful! For this pattern, I used some Lion Brand 24/7 cotton yarn that I had left over from another project.
