Hot Cocoa Mug Scarf Pattern for Hallmark Channel’s “Stitched with Sweets”

As part of Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas,” the television channel and Warm Up America! have teamed up for the Stitched with Sweets initiative to create fun and cozy scarves to donate to women’s shelters. The network has also donated $10,000 to the Foundation to support the charity.

I designed the scarf patterns and instructions inspired by Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” theme and color palette: mugs of hot cocoa decorated with candy canes and hearts. I also wanted this campaign to be as accessible as possible, so I created an alternate scarf design with more basic rectangular sections. With both of these patterns, you can make a whole scarf to donate or even just sections, and Warm Up America! has volunteers to help seam the pieces together.

For knitters, my friend Candace of Yarn Puffy “translated” both patterns to knit.

You can find all the free patterns, an instructional YouTube video for the crochet mug scarf, and the address to send your donations to at The deadline for items is February 14, 2024.

    Do we need to make the mug scratch pattern or can we choose any scarf pattern to knit for women shelter’s?
