Don't let your cuppa catch a chill!

Knit from the bottom-up, this is a simple and eco-friendly project designed to keep your coffee warm, while keeping your hands cool. 

Project is small and portable and works up in a snap—they make great gifts too!

Free Pattern:



4 inches tall  X 4 inches at its widest point after blocking

 Yarn: Worsted weight, washable yarn.  I used Cascade 220 Superwash; 100% Superwash Wool; 100 gr/3.5oz ; 220 yds/ball; Color: Really Red.  One ball will make several.
Needles: One set US size 4(3.50mm) DPN’s

6 sts =1 inch

CO 45 sts and divide evenly onto 3 DPN’s.  Join for working in the round, being careful not to twist your sts, work 5 rounds in k2, p1 rib. 

Step 1:  *K1, k1f&b, k10, k1f&b, k2; rep from * around.  6 sts increased (51 sts total).
Step 2:  *P1, k1, p1, k1, yo, k3, sk2p, k3, yo, k1, p1, k1, p1; rep from * around.

Repeat Steps 2 & 3 eleven times more.

Step 4:  *K1, k1f&b, k15; rep from * around
