Hi everyone! This is a revision for an old post of my blog, I’ve changed the photo and simplify the tutorial! With this pattern you can realize some cover mug with different colours and buttons!!
needles n. 4 mm / US 6
2 buttons (2cm / 0,75 inches)
Half a ball of cotton (with a ball you can knit 2-3 mug cover)
I’ve used Drops Design Muskat, I love it, it’s simple to knit and to wash!
Cast on 17 stitches on the needle.
Knit 18 rows in garther st. (knit all rows)
NOW : knit 2, cast off 13 st, knit 2.
NOW: knit 2, cast on 13 st, knit 2.
Knit in garther st for 54 rows.
NOW (for the buttonhole) : knit 2, cast off 3, knit 7, cast off 3, knit 2.
NOW: knit 2, cast on 3, knit 7, cast on 3, knit 2.
Knit another 2 rows.
Cast off all the st.
Sew the buttons at the mug cover!
I know it’s very very simple!!!
They are very beautifoul in every colours, also in two colours.
This mug covers are perfect as funny and easy gifts, that will surely be appreciated.
I wait you on Ravelry and Instagram!!!
