If you can...

..."plain" & "pearl" you can knit a hug.

This little book provides 20 knitting patterns for a variety of Mug Hugs.

If you are near a HobbyCraft you should be able to get a copy from their book section (RRP £4.99) but I think you might be able to get it a bit cheaper on-line from WHS or one of the other book websites.

If you can do basic know...garter stitch (every row plain) or stocking stitch (one row plain, one row pearl) then you shouldn't have any problem following some of the more simple 'hug' instructions.

I've had a play with some of the designs and come up with a pattern that I like, can knit fairly quickly and can adapt quite easily to make matching coffee pot & tea cosys.

So if you have the basic skills, why not give it a go...or if you are learning to knit these are small, quick & easy - something that you should be able to get to grips with and have a finished item in no time. Go on, give it a try....................................

That's all I can do, knit and purl ... although I don't know how to end the knitting ... I know there is a technical term for it, but for the life of me I can't remember it LOL. Ok, you may just have talked me into it :)

I think you mean "casting off"...if you google or youtube this term you should find some diagrams and some videos showing how it is done.

Easy for you!!!! I tried once to knit a baby blanket for my sisters new baby that was 28 years ago. It came out about 3 feet on one side and 2 1/2 feet on the other side. LOL. I discovered there are things I can't do!!!!!!! but it was a pretty color. LOL
