We’ve been cooped up at home for a couple of weeks, self-isolating and doing our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19. I know this is challenging for many of us, being at home all day. I’m fortunate that my day job allows me to work from home and occupy my time during the day, but in the space where I would normally commute and go out to do life things, I’ve found myself with precious extra time. This is the extra time I need to spend on my website and on designing new patterns. This is the extra time I need to have the head space to think and daydream and come up with ideas for Pops de Milk. This is the extra time that allows me to connect with the online crochet community and collaborate with makers.
The inspiration for this newest design is thanks to a Pops de Milk follower who reached out asking for an easy to follow pattern suited for beginners. They really loved the Bear Mason Jar Cosy I made a while back but really wanted something for a mug with a handle. So here it is!
My hope is that this cute little bear brings a little joy to your day and if you do make this cosy I’d love to see it. You can always share and tag me on Instagram @popsdemilk
