7 Cable Mug Cozy

This is the first pattern I've ever tried writing out. For the Defense Against the Dark Arts Class in my Hogwarts at Ravelry group, we were challenged to make various bevarage cozies. There are lots of beautiful cabled options out there for knitters but I didn't find any for crocheters. So here's my contribution - I hope it makes sense! Please send me a note if you need any clarification in the instructions. Thanks!

Row 11



  1. I really love you cozy :). Found it through Ravelry. Cannot wait to make it!! Thank you for sharing it!

  2. i love this design but I am really struggling with row 11, any chance you could explain what I need to do in very simple terms? Thanks so much!

  3. loove it <3 :) than< for sharing :D

  4. im really confused on row 11! clarification would be great!

  5. Thank you for the pattern, though ours do not match, i do like the way it turned out! Thanks Again!

  6. I somehow keep coming up with 9 posts instead of 7. 3 hours wasted on one row!!! :(

    1. Make sure you are doing 2 HDC's between each set of cables :) I had the same issue and then realized I had only been doing one.

  7. sames having probs with row 11 please explain

  8. Video please!!. Need help. Thanks

  9. Can't understand Row 11 either and I've been crocheting for 20 years!

  10. Ummmm. Ok, I understand this is a free pattern. But........ For several years now, so many having problems with row 11!!!!!!

    1. I hope this helps (the pattern should have been clearer on this point) just make sure to do two HDC's inbetween each set of cables, it helps keep it all add up to the stitches mentioned in the pattern.

  11. So I'm REALLY having problems with row 11. Is there going to be any clarification posted or am I going to trash my work so far and move on to a different pattern?? PLEASE help me. Thank you
