Since, I just did a blog about making a coffee mug cozy for Breast Cancer Awareness I thought an individual might not want one for that great cause; so, here is some different choice(s). You see at the end about the thought I had.
Again FYI: I am not a writer or technical writer; just an individual who love to crochet.
I never fully did my own directions please let me know if there is a question or if you do not understand what I mean or anything at email@example.com. I will do my best answering you questions.
My Groot Coffee/Tea Mug
3 large buttons for mug
White thread and needle
2 Stitch markers
Material for face:
2 large buttons (looks like eyes)
Black thread and needle
SC, single crochet, DC double crochet, ST stitch, CH. Chain stitch, SL ST Slip stitch.
NOTE: I have discovered you may have to use less than 36 or more depending on the size cup you choose to use.
Row 1: CH 36.
Row 2: SC in 2nd CH from Hook, SC across, turn. (35)
Row 3: CH 1, SC across, turn (35)
Row 4 – 9: Repeat Row #3.
Row 10: 5 SL ST, to make the first branch CH 3, in the 2nd ST of the CH SC, in the next CH SC, in the first space SL ST. SL ST in the next 2 SC, second branch CH 5, in the 2nd ST of the CH SC, SL ST in the next stitch, CH 3, in the 2nd stitch of the CH SC, in the next CH, SL ST then SL ST down the branch in the starting SC, SL ST, SL ST 19 times, to make the branch on the opposite side , in the SC CH 5, in the 2nd ST of CH SC, SC in the next CH, CH 4, in the 2nd CH from the end SC, SC in the next in the last CH SL ST, the SL ST to the beginning of the branch, last branch SL ST CH 4, in the 2nd ST of the CH, SC in the next SC, CH 3, in the 2ns CH ST SC, in the next CH SL ST in the CH, then SL ST down the branch SL ST to the end.
Loops for buttons:
With brown yarn and H hook for button area
Loop one: At the end of row 10:
With SL ST on end CH 12 SL ST in the Stitch at the beginning to make loop one.
Loop two: In middle approximately the end of row 5:
With SL ST on end CH 12 SL ST in the Stitch at the beginning to make loop two.
Loop Three: At the end of row 1:
With SL ST on end CH 12 SL ST in the Stitch at the beginning to make loop three.
Sew on three large black buttons on the side without the loops.
Fold the mug in half to mark with the stich markers the area for the eyes.
Sew the two buttons for the eyes.
With 12 inch piece of black yarn and tapestry needle; make a knot in the yarn. Making the smile you will start just below the right side eye going to the left side of the other eye as shown in the picture.
I am think you could also make a Reindeer and a snowman with the same pattern but you could just make Two antler instead of the branches by making them long and the short branch on the long one longer, Attach a medium red pom-pom for the nose and/or two medium black pom-poms for eyes instead of the buttons.
Snowman: Use two medium black pom-poms for eyes.Orange yarn and attach and make CH 3 and SC in 2nd CH and next CH, SL ST and end off for carrot nose. Make a smile with black yarn like the Groot's smile. You might want to glue 3 more pom-poms to make the coal buttons?
Just a thought! I will have to check this out at another time; since, I am working on some angles and have two quilts to do and a birthday present to crochet.
