Horseshoe Coffee Cosy

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas!  

We did... except my Hubby caught a bug and was a little under the weather but he is slowly feeling better.

I had shared a pin from Pinterest for a cute coffee cosy and my niece commented that a cozy with a horseshoe motif would be cute.

So off I went hunting for a pattern.

I found a free coffee cosy pattern (here)…

Mrs. Greene's "Cup of Tea" Coffee Mug Cozy with Non-Slip Backing.


And, of course, I switched out the "cup of tea" motif for "interlocking horseshoes" for my neice, MJ, who loves riding horses and also skipped adding the non-slip backing on the cosy. 


I looked at photos of horseshoes to figure out how to shape and crochet them. 


I ended up just chaining the length I needed to fit the horseshoe motifs nicely on the cosy and added one row of single crochet.  

Then I shaped the pieces into a horseshoes, interlocking them and stitched them in place with white yarn. 


The last step I added a nice rustic looking brown button. 


My niece knew immediately what the motif was (thank goodness!) and liked her coffee cosy.

Now to get ready for celebrating 2015!
