‘Tis the season for white elephant gift, and other kinds of gift exchanges, including one of my personal favorites: The mug exchange. This little Christmas treat allows you to get rid of that ugly mug you got for Christmas last year, or find a new tea cup for your already ridiculously out of control collection. Either way it can be tons of fun. For me, as a person who is not a fan of the “ugly” trend for the Christmas season (ugly sweaters, mugs, costumes etc.), I’ve decided to crochet myself through this trend as well. And, as my gift to you: Here is a little present so that you can avoid it as well.
Worsted Weight Yarn
Size J/6.00mm Crochet Hook
Sc in previous row leaving 3ch unworked, turn
Sc back and forth on remaining sc until piece measures 4 ½” or ½” from rim of mug
Ch 5, sc back in initial st (making a loop which will be used to catch the button)
Weave in all loose ends.
