As I was drinking my coffee this chill morning, I lamented the fact that it always got cold so quickly. I already have a cup cozy that I crocheted myself from a pattern I found online. It’s your typical cup sleeve. It fits the cup more like a belt than a sleeve.
To use the words from the movie Robots, I saw a need and filled a need.
Introducing my own pattern! The full-sized cup sleeve!
Fresh off the hook, my friends. I haven’t even finished it by weaving in the ends! It’s my first-ever self-designed item. Usually I go off of patterns or tutorials, but I didn’t even look to see if this existed. I knew I wanted one so I made it myself.
I’ll give it a test-run tomorrow. This one fits the grande-sized Starbucks cup since that’s what I had at the time. I use the reusable ones you can get for $1. I figure, why have a reusable cup if you keep using those cardboard sleeves? It doesn’t make sense!
Now my coffee will be warm all the way to the bottom.
