so i found this and thought i would start a thread for v-day.  these would be cute to give out as pot-holders or just to give out, and they seem fairly simple...  i'm going to try it and post my results!


does anybody else have any patterns they'd like to share?

Thanks for the link - that would make a cute dishcloth!

I'm making pink and red mug cozies with fluffy white intarsia hearts.  I'll give these away with cheap ceramic mugs from the dollar store.

I got the idea from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=15524.0, except that my mug cozy has a base which acts as a built-in coaster.

Quick Tutorial:
I make the base from the Interweave tea set pattern at http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/pdf_files/FiestaTeaSet.pdf

After the base is the right size (I just measure it on my mug as I go along - no swatching, woo hoo!), I do one purl round to define the bottom, then knit for a few rounds up the sides. 

When I get to the handle, I start knitting back and forth in stocking stitch, adding my intarsia motif (lots of free ones on the web).   

At the top of the handle, I rejoin the round and knit a few rounds, then bind off.

UPDATE: February 15
Well, I gave away the cozies with hearts, but here are a few pics of another one.

Here is the bottom showing the built-in coaster:
