One Evening Mug Wrap

Welcome to the first week of the One Evening Mystery make-a-long (MAL). Today we begin with a cute mug wrap in the very effective slip stitch crochet technique. If you have not heard of the make-along yet, please, check THIS blog post

If you follow my designing work for a while, you might know that every year we are hosting a fun project, which is joined by many people from different parts of the world. Though it is always introduced in winter around Christmastime, we do not tie it with specific celebrations, as projects from the MALs can be used and can decorate your homes throughout the year. 

We’ve had three make-a-longs in the past: Not a Christmas, Scandi Winter and Geometry&Texture MAL, and all of them ran with a huge success and lots of positive feedback. 

Because crafters are usually busy by the end of the year making custom orders for their clients and gifts for family and friends, this year we have decided to create small but effective crochet projects. All doable in just one evening. Just like a small, satisfying break from the current work you are doing (finishing) right now. 

The first pattern in the One Evening series is a mug wrap. If you have already bought the mystery pattern, then instructions for a mug wrap have been automatically added to your library, and you can download the pattern. 

It’s a simply shaped wrap with a wonderful texture. The size for both width and length is fully adjustable, and if you like the stitch pattern, you can use it for a variety of other projects, like blankets, bags, pillows… you name it. 

This year I tried to design simple patterns but still with a certain interest for the advanced crocheters. The pattern comes with written row-by-row instructions, progress pictures and a detailed video-tutorial. I believe, with all kinds of support, this mug wrap is doable for a crochet beginner. 

 To complete One Evening mug wrap, you will only need yarn and crochet hook. And optionally, you can add some beaded embroidery for a shiny and festive look. I chose the tone-on-tone beads not to draw attention from the gorgeous texture. 

Hope to see your finished mug wraps in our Facebook group HERE. And, on Instagram. Please, use the hashtag #Oneeveningmal, so that I can find you and admire your work. 

See you next Friday with a new mystery One Evening pattern.
