We are a nation of coffee lovers. I have the cutest pattern for keeping your drink warm and stylish. Just slip a cuff into your purse so you will have it ready for your coffee on the go!
These cuffs are fantastic because of the insulating properties of wool.
Knit it in your favorite team’s colors!
I can make one of these in less than an hours. I am a very fast knitter but even beginners will find this an easy project to complete.
I use my scrap bits of wool to create these. They are very inexpensive to make!
I like to give these cuff out as thank you gifts for my kids teachers and the school staff who make their learning so much fun. If a neighbor does a last minute favor for me, they get a cool coffee cuff!
The pattern comes with 2 sets of instructions:
One for strait needles and one for knitters who prefer circular or DPNS. You will use size 10.5 straits, circular needles or double pointed 10.5’s. This size needle will cause all of your stitches to disappear after you have felted your cuff. Most patterns use size 11 or larger leaving visible stitching. They also make you use two strand of yarn which really prices up your costs. I use only 1 strand with my patterns. They are just as strong and have a very nice ‘hand’.
When people at art shows examine my felted goods up close and I have to explain to them that these are actually hand knitted. They get this funny little confused look on their faces because if the lack of visible stitches.
The finished cuff will fit all standard sized coffee shop cups!! It can also be flipped upside down and put onto a soda or water bottle.
Machine wash and Dry!
I have written VERY detailed step by step instructions. I am also always here for you via email!
