‘Pimp up your takeaway coffee cup with this easy to knit and customize mug warmer!
At Jo Storie Knits we love to get you involved in our community, this knitting pattern is our current Knit A Long (KAL).
Our Knit a Long (KAL) patterns are always free during the period of the KAL where you can get involved with fellow knitters on our FaceBook Group. After the KAL has finished we charge £1.00(+VAT) and the profit from this is donated to a good cause. The funds from this particular KAL are being donated to Cancer Research in memory of my father, who died from cancer last year - I hope you'll agree it's an amazing charity.
Why not jump onto our Facebook page and get involved at www.facebook.com/jostorieknits
You will need to know how to work a simple stocking stitch and be able to knit a classic k1, P1 rib. You will also need to know how to work some basic embroidery stitches.
If you are a complete novice to knitting then join me on the KAL where I’ll show you how I do it.
