6. In the first chain, do a single crochet. Repeat this throughout all 8 chains. You now have the first single crochet line to your mug cozy.

7. Next, flip your project over and start to single crochet back the other way in each of the 8 slots. Now you have crocheted 2 lines.

8. Keep crocheting single crochets back and forth. You can check the length of your mug cozy by wrapping it around the mug you wish to use it on. Once, you have the correct length cozy, tie off your string, but leave a good six inches of loose string at the end of the knot.
