Stitch Guide 
BL – back loop, CH – chain, DC – double crochet, HDC – half double crochet, MC/CAmain color/color A, SC – single crochet, SL ST – slip stitch, ST(S) – stitch(es)

Notes
  1. Make sure your circle measures 3.25” after Round 3, and the height of the cozy fits your mug.
  2. The CH-1 or CH-2 at the beginning of each round does NOT count as a stitch.
  3. Be careful not to work your Star Stitches too tightly.
  4. This cozy works best on mugs that have handles centered on the side of the mug.
  5. Please do NOT put cozy into microwave.  Acrylic/synthetic yarns and/or buttons may melt or warp.




Special Stitches
First Star = CH 1, draw up a loop in BL of 1st ST and in BL of next 2 STS. Yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook.
Star Stitch (Stars) = CH 1, draw up a loop in the CH-1 just made, draw up a loop in BL of the ST immediately below (the same ST as the last loop of the previous star), draw up a loop in BL of next 2 STS.  Yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on hook.



Instructions:

With MC, start with magic ring.
Round 1:  CH 2, 12 DC in loop, join to 1st DC.  [12 DC]
Round 2:  CH 2, 2 DC in each DC around, join to 1st DC.  [24 DC]
Round 3:  CH 2, (1 DC in next, 2 DC in next) around, join to 1st DC.  [36 DC]  
*Circle should be same diameter as bottom of mug.  Approx. 3.25 in/8 cm.
You will now begin working in rows.
Row 4:  (work in BL only) CH 1, make First Star, make 15 Stars, CH 1, SC in next, leave last 2 STS unworked, turn.  [16 Stars + 1 SC]
Row 5:  CH 1, HDC in SC, 2 HDC in each CH-1 space across, HDC into side of First Star (see pic), turn.  [34 HDC]
Row 6:  (work in BL only) CH 1, make First Star, make 15 Stars, CH 1, SC in both loops of last HDC, turn.  [16 Stars + 1 SC]
Rows 7–10:  Repeat Rows 5 and 6 twice.
Row 11:  CH 1, HDC in SC, 2 HDC in each CH-1 space across, HDC into side of First Star.  Fasten off MC and turn.
Change to CA. 
Round 12 (trim):  Join CA with a SC in the BL of last HDC worked, SC in BL of remaining 33 STS, CH 13 (button loop made), SC in same ST, work 2 SC down into end of each Star row, SC in BL of 2 unworked STS from Row 4, work 2 SC up into end of each Star row, SC in same ST as join, fasten off.
Sew button to opposite corner from the button loop.  
Set mug inside cozy, give it a little stretch to shape it into place, and fasten loop onto button over top of mug handle.

Other Suggestions
  • Try solid, variegated or self-striping yarns.
  • To make a larger cozy, make sure Round 3 is the same size as the bottom of the mug and repeat Rows 5 and 6 as needed.
  • Add a crocheted flower, ribbon, patch, or other embellishment to your cozy to make it unique.
  • Crochet every 2 rows using a different color.  Use up your scraps!
