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!
