Even though paper coffee cup sleeves are biodegradable, they still create unnecessary waste and use needed resources. Most of the time these sleeves end up in the trash instead of recycled. Why use a boring paper sleeve when you can rock a piece of geeky art work instead?
These projects are very quick to finish and require only a small amount of yarn. They make good stocking stuffers or birthday gifts. They are practical, unique, and sure to please. I use mine on both disposable and reusable cups. Here are six free patterns for coffee cozy sleeves you can knit and crochet:
Harry Potter fanatics will be pleased with a Hogwarts-inspired House Coffee Cozy Sleeve by yours truly. The pattern is available on Ravelry and my blog, YQEclectic. It includes a chart for all four of the houses.
The three crochet patterns are all from Diana over at Family Craft Studios. These patterns have detailed step-by step instructions with photos. The blog covers all of her crafty bits and those of her entire family from her grandmother to her niece, be sure to check out her other geek crafts too!
