I have had requests to make these so I finally got around to it. Super simple to make and so cute!! All you need is a small amount of yarn, 2 buttons and thread + needle, plus the ability to knit!!
Yarn of your choice (I used wool because that is what I had on hand)
Sz 8 needles (select needles according to your yarn weight)
Regular sewing thread to match your yarn
Tapestry needle and regular sewing needle
Cast on 11.
Knit 6 rows in Garter stitch.
Knit 3, cast off 2, knit 2, cast off 2, knit 2.
Knit 2, knit through the front and back two times, knit 2, knit through the front and back two times, knit 3 (you should have 11 stitches total)
Knit in Garter stitch until your total length is about 10" (you can double check your length by wrapping cozy around the mug you plan to cover).
Cast off. Sew in tail to edges.
Sew on buttons. And there you have it!!
If you need any help just let me know!!
Happy Knitting :)
