Free Crochet Pattern: Classic Mug Cozies

This is a very easy pattern that I created a year ago and now I decided to make it free. The pattern works well for a standard dollar store mug. It adds volume and warmth to it. I never thought mug cozies are much of a practical thing, but they definitely look nice as a winter decoration. You could put them on display in your farmhouse kitchen or use them whenever you feel like your mug needs that extra hug 🙂
