Knitted Coffee Cup Sleeve


Hey guys!

This craft was prompted by my good friend, Alexia's, birthday! It was her birthday present, and I'm really proud of how it turned out.


Here are the supplies you'll need:

  • Yarn
  • Knitting needles
  • (optional) To make the flower I used this flower-making loom that my Aunt Sherrill gave me for Christmas! I'm sure it's available at any Michaels or similar store with craft supplies.

(Sorry for the lack of pictures, I was in a hurry to make these in time!)

Step 1: Cast on 20 stitches.

Step 2: Knit a rectangle until it fits around the mug you're making the sleeve for. Make it so that the two ends of the rectangle meet when pulled out because if it's too loose, it won't stay up on the coffee mug. 

Step 3: Add on the attached decoration (bow, flower, or your own creation!) by "sewing" on the decoration with yarn of the corresponding color. 

As for the flower, you can buy the loom and it comes with instructions of how to make the flower.

Well that was probably my 2nd simplest craft I've posted, so I hope you enjoy it! Let me know how yours turns out or if you have any questions.

Happy crafting!
