Mugglers -- Mug Rug and Wrap to crochet

Keep your mugs snug and cozy with these two quick and easy to make crochet projects--a square mug rug to catch spills and a wrap to keep your mug and beverage hot. You'll need scraps of Lily Sugar 'n Cream (worsted weight dishcloth cotton) and a size H (5 mm) crochet hook. Raid your scrap basket for the 16-30 yards needed for each project. You'll also need a button for the mug wrap. A button with a shank works well for this project. The mug rug measures 4" x 4". The mug wrap is 9" x 3.25". Here's a picture with the wrap on a mug and another laying it out flat.

I think this colorway is called Butter Cream Ombre in Lily Sugar 'n Cream dishcloth cotton.

Wrap up a set of these with a mug. Tuck in some candy, a packet of hot chocolate, some cookies, etc. as a thoughtful and inexpensive gift for someone.

These designs are worked in Tunisian (afghan stitch) crochet. This type of crochet creates a denser fabric than regular crochet stitches. You don't need a Tunisian hook for this project. It is small enough for a regular crochet hook. The instructions are written out. A basic understanding Tunisian crochet might be helpful.

The pattern can be found in my Ravelry pattern store.
