Sock Monkey Mug Cozy

Here is Saturday’s contribution to the Quick and Easy Crochet series we have been doing.

I was at a loss as to what to make next and then thought about the sock monkey mug cozy I made for someone for Christmas a few years ago.  I remembered it was really quick and easy to make so it fit in perfectly!

I had a bunch of scraps from some other things I made and it worked out perfectly for this project!  I made another one yesterday!

I think I will give this one to Dillon because Orange is his favourite colour, for whatever reason!
