After a long and arduous week, the weekend is finally here. I’ve waited for this weekend for so long–yes, I am taking a week long vacation! Yay! To add to this, the next couple of days are supposed to be pleasant and beautiful 🙂
With cool weather just around the corner this means that pumpkins, hot chocolate, and chili season is to come. If you’re like me, you are going to be making even more frequent visits to your local coffee shop for that certain beverage that will warm you to your toes.
So I’ve knitted something neat to accompany your coffee cups: knitted coffee cup sleeves! Check it out:
|Starbucks has got nothin’ on this!|
|Just kidding….I love Starbucks!|
It’s time to be environmentally friendly by knitting yourself a reusable coffee cup sleeve.
1 skein of medium weight yarn
Size 5 (3.75mm) needles
*Note: There are two ways you can cast on with this pattern. I’ve chosen to use a provisional cast on which leaves one end with live stitches where you can invisibly graft the two ends together at the end. Another option is to do a regular cast on technique and later sew the two ends together.
Cast on 28 sts.
Woven Cable Stitch
ROW 1: knit.
ROW 2 and every alternate row: K2, purl to last 2 sts, K2.
ROW 3: knit.
ROW 5: K2, *C8B; rep from * to last 2 sts, K2.
ROW 7: knit.
ROW 9: knit.
ROW 11: K6, *C8F; rep from * to last 6 sts, K6.
ROW 12: repeat ROW 2.
Repeat ROWS 1-12.
Continue until sleeve reaches approximately 9 inches (23cm). Bind off and sew two ends together or use Kitchener’s Stitch to graft two ends together.
