Hey word nerds! This free pattern makes a bookish drink sleeve to wrap around your sweet tea in warm weather and your latte in cool weather. Send out your bat signal and let the world know what a big nerd for words you really are! And if literary crafts are your thing, check out more bookish knits on my Instagram, @ladybitsknits.

This pattern is a fabulous stash buster. You’ll need just a small amount of 3 colors of sport weight yarn. The finished sleeve fits most standard sized to-go cups, travel cups, tumblers, beer cans (!), and mason jars.

Suited for intermediate knitters or beginning knitters who want to stretch their skills. The only stitches you’ll need are the knit and purl stitch! It will also help if you’re familiar with basic stranded knitting. See Knitty’s great introduction to stranded knitting for help mastering these techniques.
