Happy Spring, Crafters!
Okay, so technically I’m a day early on the spring front, but it’s feeling pretty springy around here! It’s getting dark later, I’m only wearing puffy vests instead of a full winter coat, and the snow from last week’s blizzard is melting away. Sweet, right?! Is it starting to feel like spring in your area?
Even if you’re not experiencing legit spring weather yet, you can definitely experience some spring crafts. First up — a bright little mug cozy to protect your paws from hot coffee mugs. Featuring a rainbow and a teeny cloud, this crocheted mug cozy will spread spring vibes everywhere you take it.

This rainbow mug cozy is a quick project and an excellent use of scrap yarn. I’m embarrassed to admit that I didn’t have any worsted weight navy or dark purple yarn in my stash, so the “I” in ROY-G-BIV is actually a “T” for teal. Most of my yarn was tapestry heart cup cozy)and the pack comes with all the rainbow colors you need!
