Description from website:
I’m a barista at Starbucks. I showed my manager my POISON! Coffee Cozy, and she loved it. In fact, she commissioned me to make one for her sister, only she wanted it to look like the cardboard sleeve that Starbucks puts on their hot drinks. And thus, this pattern was born.

The logo is done using intarsia. I wish I’d found a better green, but at my LYS, I had a choice between this and lime green. I split a length of black yarn into its plies and used one ply to embroider the check boxes on the back. Then I used two plies together to add a “3” in the shots blank and an “A” in the drink blank to signify a Triple Tall Cafe Americano, Robyn’s sister’s favorite drink. They got obscured a bit during felting, but you get the gist. Feel free to customize it with your own drink of choice.
