Knit a Chocolate Bar Mug Cozy (Free Pattern for a quirky Valentine’s Day)
I’m seeing sweet heart-themed patterns popping up everywhere these days, and I was going to join the Valentine’s Day fun too… until I got distracted by an intense pregnant chocolate craving, and I realized that February is the right time to knit not just hearts, but chocolate bars too!
So, I knit a chocolate bar.
While it was a total delight to knit –quick and quirky, plus, I munched on my inspiration the whole time– I did wonder, after casting off, what exactly the use of my knit chocolate bar should be. I love the idea of a little chocolate bar purse, but my bar was not quite the right shape. And then the perfect idea hit me: a chocolate bar mug cozy. Drink your cozy, warm, rich hot chocolate in a mug decorated with soft knit chocolate whimsy.
You too can celebrate Valentine’s day with a chocolate mug cozy. Make one for a chocolate-loving sweetheart… or, like me, for your chocolate loving self! Here’s the easy pattern*:

use a needle and thread to sew your button onto one end of your chocolate bar. Cut 3 strands of scrap yarn, each about 10 inches long. Braid the strands, and sew the braid in a loop (the size of which depends on your button) to the other side of your chocolate bar.
and now the most important step: enjoy!
As always, I’d love you to share your knit chocolate bars on social media so we can admire them! Share on Ravelry, Facebook (@yarnbirdy) and Instagram (#yarnbirdy).
