After making the coffee cup granny square to go with our Bake Shop Blanket, I wanted to be sure to not leave my tea drinkers hanging.
I do have a more deep-rooted affection for coffee but I’ve been known to enjoy my fair share of tea – and you tell me what goes better with a crunchy cookie than a cup of steaming hot tea…
Nothing I tell you, nothing!
So here is this little cutie – he works up super quick and is just too adorable!
As always, the handy video tutorial!
-Worsted weight yarn in 2 colors, (I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in mint and pink) with a small amount of white (tea bag)
-Size H 5mm crochet hook

Begin with a slip knot, Ch 11
Rows 1-6: Sc in each st (10 Sc), Ch 1, turn
After Row 6, Ch 1 and do not turn.
-Working down the side of your rectangle, Sc in first 2 sts, Ch 5, skip 3 sts, sl st in next st, Sc in last 2 sts, don’t Ch, turn
-sl st in first 3 sts, 5 Hdc in Ch space, sl st in last 2 sts, finish off
Using a tapestry needle and white yarn, sew a small square, fill it in, and sew a line to the top of the mug – see video tutorial for help with this!
*Please see video tutorial above for stitch placement – thanks!*
Round 1: With new color, sl st into top right corner of cup, all in the same st: CH 2, 2 DC, CH 3, 3 DC, CH 1, skip 3 sts, 3 DC in next st, CH 1, *3 DC, CH 3, 3 DC, CH 1, skip 3 sts, 3 DC in next st, CH 1*, repeat from * twice more forming a square, sl st to beginning CH 2
Rounds 2-3: Continue in this same manner – in corners 3 DC, CH 3, 3 DC, CH 1 and in all other CH spaces 3 DC, CH 1, finish off, weave ends
Easy, peasy, right? I hope you guys enjoy this one! I’ll see ya next Friday for another square!
