New crochet pattern: Ruffle Crown Tea Cozy

I finally came up with a simple tea cozy pattern for tea cups, tea mugs and even skinny travel mugs that don't have a good insulation.
It features a cute scalloped edging and you can embellish with buttons, lace, or ribbon.
I've gone a little overboard with buttons, as you can probably tell.

Here I have 4 wooden buttons (15mm in diameter) two on opposite faces of the cozy.
It's quite stretchy so it should fit most standard circumference mugs with no handles.
You will need to know how to work in the round and also how to work foundation single crochets. This is a good tutorial for the fsc here.

Pattern available here.
You can purchase the finished cozy pictured below in my Etsy shop.

H hook 5.0mmm
1/4 of a ball of yarn (great with leftover yarn lengths)
Yarn needle
Notions like 4X 15mm diameter wood buttons

Worked in spiral rounds without joining. Use a marker in first st of each round to mark your place at the start of each round. All stitches worked through back loops only of the stitch below.

Available for purchase here.

Embellish by sewing on buttons at equal intervals and at same level on opposite face of the cozy. The starts of the spirals should not be noticeable so the rounds are uniform throughout.
