I saw this coffe mug on this site and thought it was cute. I made the coffee mug but couldnt do the handle so I went to another site for the handle and did that handle on that site the only thing that I did different on the handle part is instead of chaining 12 I chained 20 and followed the pattern as writen. The coaster I made 5 of them but I only put 1 on here. I got the coaster pattern from crochet central patterns.

Here is the site for mug.

I really like the set.  I need to make one of those sets for my desk at work. I drink a LOT of coffee and thoroughly enjoy my morning cup(s) of java so this would be very fitting for me to do for myself. How long did it take you to finish the project from start to finish?

The cup it only took me 3 hours but it was hard to do the handle to the pattern so went to another site for handle and it went real fast. the coaster I got from crochet pattern central here is the site for coaster and they work up fast as well,

I realize this is an old thread but wanted to say that I am glad you like my pattern. After reading your post I will have to check out the handle part. I may have miss typed it or something but anyway thanks for trying out my pattern!

Wow lol ya this is a old post but glad u found it. I dont think your handle was the problem. I think it was just me I might of read it wrong. and couldnt do it. so that is why I hopped on another cups coffee handle. But I do love the pattern made one for my mom and sister. they have them on there desk at work.
