New Free Pattern: Sideways Stitch Mug Cozy (with video)

sideways stitch mug cozyIt's getting cold, and I'm drinking more hot beverages... One of these mug cozies decorates my cup and allows me to hold and sip it while it's still hot.

This project also showcases one of my favorite stitch patterns - the "Sideways" stitch! Which looks great with color changing yarn.

I'm getting the hang of video editing, and enjoying making these video patterns lately - there will likely be many more to come! This one was alot longer than the Heart videos, and took a lot more work! Phew. I hope someone enjoys it.
