Coffee Cup Sleeve Pattern

Reusable coffee sleeves are a great, simple item you can make in a jiffy.  It's a great place to start, if you're a beginner, and it's eco-friendly!
Materials needed:
Two contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn.  (Or one, if you prefer it without stripes.)
Size E crochet hook.
Stitch marker (This is optional.  You can also use a scrap of yarn as a stitch marker.)
Scissors
Tapestry needle (For weaving in loose ends.)

Stitches used:
Chain (ch)
Slip Stitch (sl st)
Single Crochet (sc)
Increase (2sc)

At the end, there will be a number inside parentheses.  This is the number of stitches you should have.


Color A: Ch 35 stitches. Be careful not to twist the chain, and make a sl st in the first chain.  Your work should now look like a circle.
1. Sc in all stitches (35)
2. Change to color B: 2sc, sc around (36)
3. Change to color A: Sc around (36)
4. Change to color B: 2sc, sc around (37)
5. Change to color A: Sc around (37)
6. Change to color B: 2sc, sc around (38)
7. Change to color A: Sc around (38)
8. Change to color B: 2sc, sc around (39)
9. Change to color A: Sc around (39)
10. Change to color B: 2sc, sc around (40)
11. Change to color A: Sc around (40)
Make a sl st, cut your yarns, and fasten off.  Weave your ends in with a tapestry needle on the inside of your sleeve.
