 The Design Wars alumni thought it would be fun to put something together for the holidays. So we are hosting a 12 Days of Christmas {Design Wars Style!} Celebration! There will be FREE patterns and lots of great pattern giveaways from some of your favorite designers!
Here is my contribution…the Hot Cocoa Mug Ornament! Although since I’ve made it and I see it just chilling on my counter top I realize that it would be adorable displayed ALL year round! I can see making a few of these for a little gal to play with or as some added decoration to the kitchen. 🙂
Hot Cocoa Mug Ornament

This pattern is also available as an instant download in my Ravelry and Craftsy Shops!

Materials:
Worsted Weight yarn in teal, brown, and white. (Or whatever colors you decide to use.)
Size G/4.0mm size hook
Polyester Fiber Fill
Yarn Needle
Stitch Marker

Size: My finished mug is approx. 2.25″-2.5″ tall

Abbreviations used:
st(s) – stitch(es)
ch – chain
slst – slip stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet

NOTE 1: The mug and the cocoa sections are worked in a continuous round. Do not join.
NOTE 2: You can add a piece of ribbon to the handle or use the handle itself to hang from your tree. It’s so cute you may want to keep it out all year round!

MUG – (use teal yarn, or whatever you choose)
Ch2.
Round 1 – work 6sc into the 2nd chain from hook, DO NOT JOIN. (6)
Round 2 – 2sc in each st around. (12)
Round 3 – *sc, 2sc in next* repeat *to* around. (18)
Round 4 – *sc in next 2, 2sc* repeat *to* around. (24)
Rounds 5 thru 12 – sc around, slst to join, ch1. (24)
DO NOT FASTEN OFF but move on the the next piece (cocoa).

COCOA – (use brown yarn)
Ch2.
Round 1 – work 6sc into the 2nd chain from hook, DO NOT JOIN. (6)
Round 2 – 2sc in each st around. (12)
Round 3 – *sc, 2sc in next* repeat *to* around. (18)
Round 4 – *sc in next 2, 2sc* repeat *to* around. (24)
Fasten off and weave in your ends.

MARSHMALLOWS: (make 3 or as many as you like)
Ch3, slst to first ch. Fasten off. Use the 2 tails to tie each marshmallow to your cocoa piece. Trim all loose ends.

Assembling the 2 pieces:
Line up the stitches. (There are 24 in each.)
Grab the yarn that you didn’t fasten off from the first piece and sc though BOTH loops of BOTH pieces around to connect. (Work about half way around then start filling with poly-fill.) Work to the last 3 sts and fill the mug all the way. (Be sure to “over stuff” it slightly so it pushes the cocoa up a little.) Finish working the last 3 sts, slst to join. Now slst all the way around. DO NOT JOIN.

HANDLE:
Ch8, count 7 rounds straight down, slst around a st. Ch1, turn.
Slst in next 4 sts back up the ch, sc in next ch, 2hdc in next, sc in next, slst in last ch, then slst into the mug. Fasten Off and weave in your ends.

ENJOY! I’d love to hear where you are displaying your cute little mug!

As always you are free to sell your work…it’s YOUR beautiful work! I just ask that you refer back to this post for the pattern. Thank you so much!!
