brilliant! this will be a perfect gift for that friend of my husband's whom I don't know very well.  Cheesy  but i have a question or two.  it may be because it's the end of the work day but i can't seem to see how it fits together.  is it basically a wrap-around?  and your hand holds it in place?  if so, does it fall off when you take your hand out?  i ask because my gift-recipient is a student and wouldn't need to continuously hold his mug once he reached his class.    hmmm.

No you just stitch together a few stitches at the top and at the bottom and that holds it on the mug.  You can see that in the following photo.



If that doesn't make sense just let me know and I can try to explain it better.

ETA: Maybe this will help

now i see!  i wondered where those stitches were coming from across the top of the mug.  i thought maybe there was a long button-type hole next to the edge for the handle to fit through.  thanks so much for clarifying for me.   Grin  again, this is a super clever idea.  kudos to you!

Brilliant! Finally, a way to hold your coffee mug on winter days without your fingers freezing!

Now, if I could just figure out how to make this with crochet...

THANKS ALL

Brilliant! Finally, a way to hold your coffee mug on winter days without your fingers freezing!

Now, if I could just figure out how to make this with crochet...


Maybe the following will help with that Grin ....



1. could the same thing be made with crochet?  I tried knitting once, got a square about 4 inches, and could not go on---it took waaaaaaaay too much thinking and I'm way too attention deficit to do it.

I don't know how to cable while crocheting but this is such an easy pattern.  If you make something along the same shape you could definitely make it work.  Basically it is a long enough rectangle to go around the coffee mug then you decrease about 5 sts on both sides and make that rectangle just a little longer than the length of your fingers.



It is really easy to add cables or lace or whatever suits your fancy  Smiley so I would just play with it and see what you come up with.
