I don't know how to crochet so I have been trying to knit them and NO I am not putting the sorry evidence on here...although it would give you all a good laugh...hmm I'll maybe consider it.
One of my favourite blogs to read is Attic 24, Lucy's crochet is absolutely amazing and she very kindly has a lot of free patterns on her blog, in all of her patterns she describes how to do each stitch in such a way that even I can follow. So I thought what the heck I'll try and crochet a mug cosy, I have used just one simple stitch, don't ask me what cos I don't know! This is what I've made.
It looks like they are showing us how to make these in next months Mollie Makes (thats where the tea bag idea was from) I think it looks knitted though so if there is a proper pattern I may try knitting another one, I'm hoping there will be some ideas for the fastening around the handle as well. I am very happy with this one and I will be making more as it only took an evening and it was easy yay :D.
