I had crocheted a nice blanket for one of the managers at work, then decided to make one for another manager, then when that was done decided to make a coffee mug cozy for the store admin.
Then I felt like I should make something for the rest of the managers, so I decided on a simple coffee sleeve pattern that I cold whip out quickly and used yarn from my stash. Yay for de-stashing!
For the coffee sleeves I followed this pattern, which looks fancy but is really super simple. I would suggest using stitch markers to mark the last stitch in each row, because it’s very easy to miss a stitch.
I used this pattern for the mug cozy, which again was super simple and easy. I did end up adding another row, because when I tested it on one of my mugs it only came up about halfway. I also chained more for the loop so it would be easier to get over the button. I would suggest not fastening off your loop chain until you’re sure that it’ll work for you.
I left them on everyone’s desk – wrapped of course – when I went to work yesterday, so I’m not sure how everyone liked them. I’m working tonight, so I’m sure I’ll find out then.
