(If you are in need of new crochet hooks, this set with the soft grip handles looks nice. I like the handles because sometimes my hand hurts when I crochet for a long time and they really help! These large eye blunt needles are also great for weaving in your ends)

The Winter Mug Cozy would make a great teacher or friend gift. Wrap it around a cute mug and fill the mug with tea bags, cocoa packets, or coffee beans. Add some cookies or tea biscuits and tie it all up in a cellophane bag with a pretty ribbon. A fun and tasty gift that everyone is sure to enjoy! 🎁

Don’t forget to pin the Winter Mug Cozy to your Pinterest crochet board using the button below!

Happy Stitching!
