The autumn winds have started and before we know it, there will be snow on the ground in the north east. At this time of year I always crave a hot mug of hot chocolate or pumpkin spice coffee. What a nice luxury it will be to have these loom knit cabled mug cozies around our cups this year.

Make a couple for yourself and a couple for a friend! They make a great, inexpensive, gift wrapped around a mug filled with hot chocolate, tea, coffee and marshmallow packs too.

Finished Measurements:  3" wide x 12" long (can be made to any length). You can also increase width by adding Knits/purls on edge stitches.
Difficulty:  Intermediate (cable, knits, purls) Video is available for cable stitch. See link below.
Gauge: Not necessary to complete this pattern.

  • Any 3/4" peg spacing loom (kk, boye, Nicole, CinDWood, etc.)
  • Knitting tool
  • Crochet hook
  • Measuring tape
  • Button (medium to large)
  • Yarn:  Any 5 to 6 weight lofty wool or cotton (heat resistant) or you can use 2 strands 4 weight yarn (used as 1 strand). Wool blends are acceptable for this pattern. Paton's bulky/Encore Mega used for samples seen in photos.
Pattern Notes
  • Knit as flat panel.
  • Measure the circumference of mug and minus 2", this is the length you will knit to.
  • A video for how to do the 6-st RC can be found here:  6 st-RC


Foundation Row:  Chain Cast on 10 pegs with 1 (bulky) or 2 strands (worsted) yarn.

Rows 1-5:  K1, p1, k6, p1, k1.
Row 6:       K1, p1, 6-st RC, p1, k1.
repeat rows 1-6 until knitting measures above measurement of mug circumference. It's better if the cozy is a little short as it will stretch out with use.
Begin decreasing end of cozy...
Next: Move 1st and last stitch inward one peg (decrease 2)
Row 1:  K1, p6, k1.
Row 2:  K8
Next: Move 1st and last stitch inward one peg (decrease 2)
Row 3:  K6
Row 4:  K1, p4, k1.
Next:  Move 1st and last stitch inward one peg (decrease 2)
Row 5:  K4
Next:  Move 1st and last stitch inward one peg (decrease 2)
Row 6:  K2
Bind off.
Finish:  Make a 1-1/2" loop with cast off tail; secure with knot and weave in end.  Sew on a Medium size button on the other side of cozy. See picture.

Thank you for the pattern! This was my first project on a loom. Your video on the 6-st RC helped me out a lot!
