A gift for a dear friend.

I wanted to make a just right gift for my friend, Amy. She works in an office and is a bit of a coffee addict–there is always a nearly full mug on her desk! Inspired by the coffee cozy I had made for myself, I decided to make one for Amy and the mugs she typically uses, but with some twists…

The button closure for my mug cozy.

Thus, the Franken-pattern-mug-cozy was born.

Knit in Spud & Chloë Sweater Life Jacket because Amy’s favorite color is orange, I tweaked things here and there, used a few numbers from this or that pattern, grabbed a fantastic button out of my button stash, used a coffee mug from my house for testing…and now it is aliiiiive!

The perfect, Amy-inspired custom mug cozy. I really love how it turned out and hope Amy does, too.
