Snuggly Huggly Mug Hug - FREE PATTERN

The snow is all gone now - but I'm still craving hot cocoa! (Honestly, let me be real - when do I NOT crave something chocolate?!?) I decided when I came across this new stitch that I wanted to incorporate it into a mug hug.

It's called the crunch stitch - and it's a super easy stitch combo and it works up with lots of awesome texture! I love how my mug looks like it's wearing a sweater now!!!
Here's a video if you'd like to watch the stitch in action: 

Please be aware:
This is my first FULL pattern on the blog - so please be kind - I'm not a professional pattern writer, crochet designer, or yarn knotter-upper! I just came up with this design and wanted to share it with y'all. 
So if you see something that I could word different - or something you don't understand please let me know in the comments below and I'll do whatever I can to make it easier to understand, or make it correct.
I know I understand it all - but I also know that doesn't mean y'all will! (That's most stuff in my head though, HA!)
 Without further ado:

  • Row 2: 2ch (count as 1 hdc), skip 1 st, *sl st into next hdc, 1 hdc into next sl st; rep from * ending sl st into top of tch, turn. (14)
  • Repeat row 2 (42 times) --- this is to fit a standard size mug --- you may have to do more or less rows depending on your hook or mug size

  • when you go all the way around - slip stitch into first sc and finish off. weave in your ends.
  • wrap mug hug around mug with strap going around the top of the handle and across to the other side of the hug. (see picture)
  • attach button where it fits best for the strap to fit around the mug all "snuggly huggly"
  • wrap the loop around the base of the handle
  • attach the second button on the other side where it best fits to hold the sweater on.
That's it! Now you can pour that hot water in and enjoy a cuppa!

p.s. What's your favorite warm drink to make for yourself during the winter months? I'd have to say mine is a Black Spiced Tea with a dash of milk and honey!
