Whether it’s tea or coffee that you enjoy drinking while relaxing with friends or knitting, you need one of these hand-knit coffee sleeves!

Knit up one of these useful and pretty little coffee sleeves in just a few hours with very little yarn. The leaf design is charted and written out and mostly consists of simple 2-stitch cable twists.

This is a quick and seamless project when knit on small circular needles. Double-pointed needles would work too, but circulars are definitely recommended.

Great for stash-busting too, as you only need 35 yards of a dk or light worsted-weight yarn. Perfect as last minute thank you gifts for your favorite teacher, girlfriend, host, babysitter, etc.

Shown here in Garnstudio DROPS Lima (teal one), Knit Picks Swish DK (taupe one), and Classic Elite Yarns Magnolia (pink one - sorry, it’s a discontinued yarn). Some yarn substitutes listed above.
