Ripple cup cozy pattern

Looking for a quick project that I could make for my old coworkers since I now have a new job...but what to make??  I searched high and low and decided a cup cozy would be the best option since everyone drinks coffee or tea.  I scoured the internet for a pattern and found a really cute wavy pattern so I bought all the supplies....

After looking at the pattern again, I found out that it cost almost as much money AS a cup of coffee/tea!  I'm too frugal and I've been at this too long to pay for a pattern.

And created my own cup cozy pattern:

Using worsted weight and G hook.  You will need a button as well.

Ch 39

1. Dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in next 4 ch.  *Dc2tog 2x.  dc in next 3 ch.  2 dc in next 2 dc, dc in next 3 dc*.  Repeat until the end.  2 dc in last dc. Turn

2. 3 Ch.  Dc in first 4 st.  Dc2tog 2x.  dc in next 3 ch.  2 dc in next 2 dc, dc in next 3 dc*.  Repeat until the end.  2 dc in last dc. Turn


Repeat row 2 until desired width (I did 4 rows).

Do not fasten off.  Sl st down the side to the bottom of the 4th row and ch 15.  Sl st to the top of the 2nd row.  Fasten off.  Tuck in your ends.

Before sewing on the button, try to wrap your cozy around your mug to make sure it fits.  Sizes will vary according to the size of the mug, but there is some give to crochet so it shouldn't be too much of an issue.
