The recent passing of Leonard Nimoy was truly sad. Although he played many roles and had a great career, to me he will always be Mr. Spock. In honour of the great man I have crocheted a trekkie mug cosy.
Get crocheting, adorn your mugs and lets raise a cuppa to the legend that is Leonard Nimoy.

With blue yarn make 13 chains.
Row 1 (WS): 1 dc into second ch from hook, 1 dc into every ch to end, turn.
Row 2: ch 1, *1 dc into front loop only of next st, 1 dc in back loop only of next st, rep from * to end, turn.
Continue repeating row 2 until work measures 24.5cm (or however long you wish the cosy to be).
Break off yarn.
With RS facing, re-join yarn to 4th stitch on last row.
Row 1: ch 1, [1 dc into back loop of next st, 1 dc into front loop of next st] 3 times, turn.
Rep row 1, 5 more times.
Row 7: ch 1, 1 dc into back loop of next set, 1 dc into front loop of next set, miss 2 sts, 1 dc into back loop of next set, 1 dc into front loop of next set, turn.
Row 8: ch 1, 1 dc into back loop of next st, 1 dc into front loop of next st, 2 dc into ch-2 sp, 1 dc into back loop of next st, 1 dc into front loop of next st.
Weave in ends.
Attach button to the cosy, placing it in the centre of 5th row from the start of work.
Using photograph as a guide, sew on communicator badge on the side of cosy, pulling it into shape as you sew.
If you wish; with tapestry needle and silver yarn (I held it double) embroider LLAP (Live Long And Prosper) so it would display on the opposite side to the badge.
