Okay, Okay…

I finally did it!  Many crocheters have asked for an easy pattern to make cute hats for mini marshmallow mugs.  These adorable mini cocoa mugs make the perfect addition to your holiday or special event display or tiered tray. Here is the pattern I created for the basic hat to fit the 2.5″ mugs shown.  You can pick up your own set of Marshmallow Mugs here.  

Tools and Materials:

  • #4 Worsted Weight yarn
  • I hook (5.5 mm)
  • optional embellishments like ribbon, pompoms, beads, etc and a hot glue gun to attach them
  • follow my easy DIY pompom tutorial here

The color combinations are endless!
