Product Description

Whether it's tea or coffee that you enjoy drinking while relaxing with friends or knitting, you need one of these hand-knit coffee sleeves!

Knit up one of these useful and pretty little coffee sleeves in just a few hours with very little yarn. The leaf design is charted and written out and mostly consists of simple 2-stitch cable twists.

This is a quick and seamless project when knit on small circular needles. Double-pointed needles would work too, but circulars are definitely recommended.

Great for stash-busting too, as you only need 35 yards of a dk or light worsted-weight yarn. Perfect as last minute thank you gifts for your favorite teacher, girlfriend, host, babysitter, etc.

  1. Beautiful Coffee Cozy

    Posted by Pat Schlegelmilch on 19th Sep 2018

    I've made this coffee cozy 3 times and put them away for Christmas giving. Instead of the 9" circular needle, I used double pointed needles. ( I felt like I was using tiny toys for knitting.) I liked the design and it made me feel accomplished! I also appreciate the fact that you are listing patterns by skill level--I guess this makes me an Intermediate 2.
