More of a recipe than a pattern:
For a 16 oz. takeout cup:
With worsted weight yarn and a G hook, chain 30.  Join into a ring and hdc into each chain.  Increase 2 sts every other round (e.g. inc 1, hdc 12, inc 1, hdc rem), checking the fit every once in a while, working a plain round to tighten it up if necessary. I like a cozy about 6 rounds high.  Stretchy yarns like wool need fewer increase rounds - increasing 2 sts every third round might do the trick.  If you want it to fit lower, start with a shorter foundation chain. 

On the left: Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed cotton in expresso, lemonade, honeydew, and sky.  On the right, unidentified scrap wool in pink, Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed Cotton in poppy orange. 

I gave one as a small thank-you gift to a barista who makes me awesome dirty chai lattes (chai latte with a shot of espresso).  Barista was delighted, showed it around, people made many positive comments on it.  I need to remember not to downplay my skills - sure, it's something I just whipped up with scrap yarn and an empty takeout cup...but I don't have to say that.  I can just smile and say thank you.

Great job on these! I love your colors.

I've been making these for a little while with all intentions of selling them in my local coffee shop. Getting around to actually packaging them and selling them, however, has taken me much longer than it took me to figure out the pattern!

One thing I do is make a bunch in single colors, and then add surface embroidery / embellishments. (I spill my coffee WAY too much, so I'm making a bunch in chocolate brown w/ bright colored accents for all of those fellow coffee-spillers).

i'm making this right now for a friends birthday tomorrow, so what if its one in the morning....
i think that i'm going to try and incorporate functional buttons into mine, so i guess i wont complete it in the round and make a couple of extra large chains at the end!
i am compelled to use these really cute oversized woodgrain buttons i got!
this is such a cool idea Grin

Thanks so much for the pattern.
