Cabled Mug Cozy

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

18 sts + 28 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in cable pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

2/2 LC (2 over 2 left cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k2, then k2 from cable needle.
Yo (yarn over)
A way to create a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.


COZY
Cast on 52 sts.
Row 1 (WS): *P2, k2, p4, k2; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2.
Row 2: *K2, p2, k4, p2; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.
Row 3: Rep Row 1.
Row 4: *k2, p2, 2/2 LC, p2; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.
Rep Rows 1-4 until piece measures about 1 3/4 in. (4.5 cm) from beg, end with a Row 1 or 3 as the last row you work.
Next (Buttonhole) Row: K2tog, yo, work in pattern as established to end of row.
Continue to work in pattern as established until piece measures about 3 1/2 in. (9 cm) from beg.
Bind off.

FINISHING
Sew sides of Cozy together for about 1/2 in. (1.5 cm) at top and at bottom, leaving remaining 2 1/2 in. (6.5 cm) open for mug handle.
With sewing needle and thread, sew button onto edge of handle opening, opposite buttonhole.

Cabled Mug Cozy Reviewed by Marlene Noyes on 2014-07-23 ***
This was working out HUGE (and I knit tight), so I reduced the pattern by 10 stitches.

Be sure to make this about an inch shorter than the height of the mug to allow for lip room - not all the way up to the top of the mug as shown in the picture.
