Mug Cosy for your Valentine
This is the knitting pattern for a mug cosy, worked in rib and twist stitch pattern. It has a stocking stitch area for a motif - in this case I have used a heart for your valentine, but you could embroider any thing you like. The heart is embroidered on using the swiss darning technique.
