I made coffee cup cosy for my best friend for her birthday; she was born on International Star Wars Day and, appropriately, loves Star Wars! ~___^ To make your own,  you'll need black yarn (I used a 8 ply DK weight), a 4mm hook, a tapestry needle, and some cotton threads in grey, red, and blue.

First, chain 52 stitches then check that this is going to be long enough by wrapping your chain around your cup; the ends should touch without having to stretch too much. Join the ends of your chain with a slip stitch, single stitch in each chain, and then slip stitch and chain one to start the next row. I did 15 rows of single stitches, but if your hands are bigger you might need more!

Once you've made your cosy as tall as you'd like it to be, fasten off and weave in the ends. Then you can do your cross-stitch! It's really easy to cross-stitch on single stitch crochet because the edges of the stitches make little indentations similar to aida cloth. Once I'd finished my cross-stitching, I decided the inside of the cosy looked a little messy so I used black thread to sew in a lining of black felt. You can't even see the stitches from the outside, and the inside looks lovely and neat ^____^

It is a lovely cosy. I'm sure your friend will appreciate it!
