Special Notes:

After completing the first row, I like to mark the right side with a stitch marker. (I used a safety pin) This helped me to easily keep track of which side was which as I was working through the pattern.

When changing colors, keep the loose ends and dropped strands to the wrong side of your mug rug, this will help keep the right side nice and neat.

Keep all working strands and ends to the wrong side
