“Santa Baby” Mug Cozy – Crochet Pattern

"Santa Baby" Mug Cozy
It may be a little late in the season, but I couldn’t help but think my “Santa Baby” earwarmer would look great as Mug cozy, as well. So despite being out of the Christmas season, I wrote up a pattern for a mug cozy. If you have made my “Santa Baby” earwarmer, much of this pattern will seem very familiar to you. Enjoy!
