Happy Eggnog – Free Crochet Pattern

I love eggnog! I can’t have it anymore so that resulted in me designing this cute piece. You can give as gifts, sell at markets, turn into ornaments, keep him on your nightstand. The possibilities are endless and it’s so quick to make! 

I do use the crab stitch (AKA the reverse single crochet) around the rim of the cup. You can find a video tutorial by Tamara Kelly here

Don’t forget to tag me in pictures of your makes by tagging me on instagram @safehaven_studio and please don’t forget to check out my paid patterns over here on my ko-fi or here on my Ravelry. Thanks so much!

R2: *Inc* (12)
R3: *Sc, Inc* (18)
R4: *2sc, Inc* (24)

By crocheting in the Back Loop you are creating a ridge. As you continue, you’ll see how the ridge is creating the bottom of the cup.

R6-11: *sc* (24)
R12: *2sc, Dec in BLO* (18)
By crocheting in the back loop in row 12, this creates another ridge. This ridge will be the top rim of the cup.

Now for the face, insert the eyes between rows 7 and 8. Make sure they’re about 3 stitches part with 2 spaces between the three stitches.
For the mouth, use black yarn or smaller embroidery floss (whichever you prefer) and make you a small smile around row 6.

R13: *Sc, Dec* (12) – Begin to stuff
R14: *Dec* (6)
FO and sew hold closed.

Rim in Beige

Making sure it’s at the back of your eggnog, join the yarn in one of the front loops of Row 12 and ch 1. Sc once into the same stitch.
In the remaining front loops, work a reverse single crochet in each front loop around. (24)
A video that can explain it in detail is by a Tamara Kelly here.
