Coffee cup sleeve- EASY!

What better way to be green than to have a reusable coffee cup sleeve?  This pattern is very simple and you can make several and give to your friends. It's a great way to use that scrap yarn you have laying around.

Go from this:

 To this:

Pattern -
Small amount of worsted weight yarn.  I used cotton (Lily Sugar & Cream) because I think it will last longer and absorb the heat a little better.

G size hook and needle for weaving in ends

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
sk = skip

Round 1: Chain 32, join to make ring.

Round 2: Ch 1, sc around, join.

Round 3: Ch 1, sc in first sc, *ch1, sk1, sc* around, join.

Round 4: Ch 2, *sc in ch1 space, ch1*, repeat around

Repeat for 7 more rounds (for tall size - you can add more rows if you drink taller cups)

Last round: Ch1, sc around.  Finish off and weave in ends.

That's it!  Now go enjoy a cup of "eco smart" joe!
