Mug Hugger Coffee Cozies are worked up using the very textured Lemon Peel Stitch. The ties are made up of chain stitches and slip stitches. That cute bow is what really makes this cozy different. It easily fits many sizes of mugs.

Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton is my favorite yarn for this project. Mercerized cotton gives the yarn a subtle shine, and it comes in 24 bold and vibrant colors. 24/7 Cotton Yarn is so easy to care for, I just throw the Mug Hugger Coffee Cozy in the wash and lay it flat to dry.
You will work the Mug Huggers in rows until the final round, where you will work continuously around the entire cozy creating the two ties and the edging.
Measures 9" long by 2.75" wide. The ties are approximately 5" long.
