Snowman Mug Hug

By:

Take inspiration from the outdoors for a warm crochet Snowman Mug Hug. This easy crochet Christmas pattern is one you can take with you anywhere when you need a little extra warmth for your drink. If you know a coffee or tea lover, a craft snowman mug cover would be a cute homemade Christmas gift that's functional, but also festive. You can also use this pattern to make even more mug hugs throughout the year for any occasion.

Hug fits 4" (10 cm) high mug with 3" (9 cm) top diameter and 2" (5 cm) bottom diameter.

Crochet Hooks:  3.5mm [US E-4] and 5.0mm [US H-8].
