The Rain Boots Mug Snug Crochet Pattern - Darn Good Yarn

The Rain Boots Mug Snug Crochet Pattern

Project Intro

The chilly, transitional weather between winter and spring is the perfect time to cozy up with a good book, yarn project, and a warm mug of your favorite cozy drink. This little mug snug will help keep your fingers protected from your steamy cup…and it’s super cute to “boot” using the soothing blues, yellows, and oranges of the “Rain Boots” March 2023 Yarn of the Month®!
