This easy-to-crochet mug cosy comes with the added features of a base that doubles as an inbuilt coaster, and a pocket on the front for holding your favourite teabag. Made using single and half-double crochet, its skill level is easy and is a good project for learning how to crochet in the round. It is designed to fit a standard mug, but can be easily adapted to fit different sizes.
