Chevron Coffee Cup Cozy (free pattern)


As promised, here’s the pattern for a chevron-printed coffee cup cozy, or sleeve. Small and quick to knit, it’s the perfect first fair isle project, with only two colors and no floats longer than 3 stitches. Stash one in your purse to use at the coffee shop instead of those wasteful paper sleeves, or slip onto your morning travel mug for a soft, pretty grip.


The yarn is used is Knit Picks Palette in Cream (MC) and Sagebrush (CC) but I wish I’d used more contrasting colors for the purpose of photography for this site. If you have a large stash of fingering-weight wool, using many different colors would make a lovely Missoni-style pattern.

Yes, you probably don’t need one. But you know you want one. It will only take approximately 1 movie and 20 minutes of the news to finish. If you watch Lord of the Rings, you could probably make two.
