  • Worsted Weight Yarn 1 ball
  • Size 7mm knitting needles
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle

Skills Used

  • Cast On
  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Little Twist – see below for the how-to
  • Bind Off


  • Little Twist = worked over two stitches. Slip the first stitch as if to knit, and then knit the next stitch.  Bring your left needle over to the stitch you slipped, and insert your left needle into that stitch, and pass it over the stitch you just knitted.  You’ll have a strand of yarn drawing a slightly twisted arch over the knitted stitch.  Knit that stitch that you just moved back over to the left needle. (Sl, K1, PSSO, K)

  • Cut yarn leaving about a 12” tail, and attach darning needle.
  • Secure the last stitch, and put the cast on edge next to the bind off edge, and stitch closed the top 1/2 inch of the seam.
  • Weave the sewing yarn down through one side of the seam, leaving a nice little gap for the handle of your mug to fit through.
  • Stitch the remaining 1/2 “ of the seam.
