Cabled Coffee Cuff
UPDATE 12/29/08: I have uploaded a new version of this pattern with six different ways to make this cuff. You can find it here.
Want to keep your hand from burning when you pick up your latte, but you don’t want to use more of those paper sleeves? Feel like maybe your coffee cup could be more attractive? Want to knit socks but are scared of turning the heel? The coffee cuff might be just the thing for you.
One cuff takes about half a sock’s worth of yarn. The cables give it structure and something to grip, while the ribbing ensures that it will fit most sizes of coffee cups. You’ll probably want to use something machine washable just in case you spill coffee on it.
