This is a cute idea and a very practical one for using up your odds and ends of DK or light weight yarn. Although acrylic would work alright, I think a cotton or cotton blend yarn would be best for handling the hot mug, plus you could wash it if you spilled your coffee or tea on it.

This is super cute and easy to make. I love how, since it's sideways, it looks like crisscrossing, when it's really just sideways stockinette. It could be cute to add a button for under the handle, too!

What do you mean by double knitting yarn? Two strands together?

I think she means double knit yarn, usually written dk or DK. It means a medium weight yarn, often four ply. You might want to make a swatch first to make sure your yarn works out the way you want it to. The rest of the intructions seem pretty straightforward.

I don't really think cozies are necessary when it comes to drinks like this, but it certainly makes you feel all warm and cozy while snuggled next to the fire on a cold day.

first there were tea cosies, now mug cosies sounds rather odd at first, but keeping coffee or tea hot longer and not burning fingers is wonderful. This would also work using the stash of leftover yarns, making colorful cosies - A idea
