Dar’s Mug Cozy #1

This is a very easy cup cozy that can be made in under an hour. It should fit a wide variety of mugs or cups and does have a little bit of stretch to it allowing it to fit most cup sizes. This cozy is great for gifts to teachers, apartment office staff, co-workers, family …. well, just about anyone! Just make sure you use 100% cotton so it absorbs the condensation on the outside of the cup and dries quickly.
