mug cosy
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.

    Making up

    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.
