‘Mug my heart out’ coffee mug cozy

heart mug

Hi there!

Ready for Valentine’s day? This year I was in the mood for some bright colors and a bit of polymer clay for my Valentine’s project. This mug cozy is unbelievably quick. 30 min start to finish. It has some hearts for embellishment, which are equally simple. You can make a ton of them to give away with crocheted/knitted gifts any time of the year (my friends/relatives love it!). Instead of using a plain button, I made my own with polymer clay. You will be seeing a lot more clay projects in the blog from now on. Yay for clay!

Can’t get enough? Check out last year’s Valentine’s project, my heart earflap hats! 

In the meantime, enjoy this pattern and have a love-filled Valentine’s day!

Cozy pattern

With 5 mm crochet hook and acrylic worsted weight yarn (I used Michaels’ Loops and threads in red)

Rd1. 6sc
Rd2. 2 sc in each st (12 sc)
Rd3.(2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next) around (18 sc)
Rd4. (2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next 2 st) around (24 sc)
Rd5: (2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next 3 st) around .(30 sc)
Rd6: (2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next 4 st) around (36 sc)
This completes the base of the cozy

Rd7: sc in each st around in back loop ONLY! (36 sc)
Rd8: sc in each st around in both loops (36 sc).
Rd9: sc in each of the next 32 st. Now you’re leaving the gap for the handle. From now on you’ll work in rounds. Turn, chain 1.
Rd10-21: sc in each of the next 32 st. Turn, chain 1.

Now single crochet along the handle gap. At the end, chain 21 then slip stitch through the first chain to make a closed loop.

Funda de taza

Empezar con un círculo mágico. Trabajar en espiral (sin unir las vueltas con punto raso) hasta que se indique lo contrario

  1. Hacer 6 puntos bajos en el círculo mágico – 6 pb
  2. 2 puntos bajos en cada punto de la ronda anterior – 12 pb
  3. (2 pb, 1 pb) * 6 – 18 pb
  4. (2pb, 1 pb, 1pb) * 6 – 24 pb
  5. (2pb, 1pb, 1pb, 1 pb) * 6 – 30 pb
  6. (2pb, 1pb, 1 pb, 1 pb, 1 pb) *6 – 36 pb

Esto completa la base de la funda

  1. Pb en la lazada/hebra de atrás en cada pb de la vuelta anterior – 36 pb
  2. Pb en cada pb de la vuelta anterior – 36 pb
  3. Pb en los 32 pb siguientes (de esta forma dejamos un hueco para el asa de la taza) – a partir de ahora trabajaremos en vueltas montando una cadena al principio de cada vuelta, es decir, no trabajamos en espiral
  4. -21 Montar 1 cadeneta, pb en cada pb de la vuelta anterior, dar la vuelta – 32 pb

Al final de la vuelta 21, montar 22 cadenetas y unir la ultima cadena a la primera con un punto raso.

Heart polymer clay button

Take a small amount of red polymer clay and work it in your hands to soften it up. Roll it into a log. Add a small amount of white, pink or another contrasting color and roll the log in your hands to mix in the color in streaks. Once you’re satisfied with the streaks, shape it into a heart and flatten it out. Make two large holes (make sure the head of your darning needle can get through) and bake the heart according to manufacturer instructions. Sew heart onto the cozy using the same yarn you used for the body of the cozy.
