Valentines Mug Hugs

So there are just a few days left until Valentines now, what are you making for your loved ones? We love these cute mug cosies designed by Kristen Tendyke.

Quick to knit in worsted weight Classic Elite Renaissance, this is a great little project for using up scraps of yarn left in your stash, and for having a go at simple Fair Isle if you haven’t before! This cute cosy is worked flat and there is a cable panel down either side to keep your fingers busy.

Kristen Tendyke is a knitting and crochet designer who has been developing a collection of designs dedicated to supporting the use of eco-frindly yarns.  She has recently published her first book, Finish Free Knits.

This pattern is offered for free (or with a small donation if you can), however there are lots of beautiful garment and accessory patterns also worth browsing on Kristen’s website.

On the tea front this week I have been rather into the Cosy Jasmine Green recently; it’s delicate yet flavoursome, and a really gentle way to get going in the mornings.  Delicious also with a slice of ginger cake, as tested earlier on today 🙂
