Free Pattern!

This coffee cup sleeve can be used with paper cups or preferably with your resuable ceramic coffee cup. It can also be used on your clear plastic cup for iced drinks to keep your hands from getting cold. This sleeve is stretchy and will slide onto your cup from the bottom, the buttons are not functional but for decoration only. Feel free to make as many of these as you like for your self or others but please do not use this pattern for profit with out my permission.


Needles: US size4

Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport

Notions: Three buttons, 1 large needle for sewing on buttons and weaving in ends.


Approximately 6 sts=1 inch

Gauge in this pattern isn’t too terrible important for this project, the most important part is the length measurement which you can check as you



CO 21 sts

*Seed Stitch (K1, P1 Repeated to last stitch, K1, Turn, Repeat, also known as moss stitch) for 20 rows.

Place short row as follows: on wrong side row seed stitch for 18 sts, bring yarn to the back, slip next stitch to right hand needle, bring yarn to the front, slip stitch back to left needle, turn work and seed stitch back.*

Repeat from * until you've knit approximately 80 rows and the sleeve wraps around your cup tightly with about an inch of negative ease and 1/2 inch overlap.

Bind loosely.

Make Up

Using yarn ends, sew sleeve together to form a “cone” with about 1/2 inch overlapping, sew both the top and underside seams.

Sew on three small to medium sized buttons of your choice.

Weave in any loose ends.
