Ok, this is an adaptation of theone on magknits.com
http://psycserv.mcmaster.ca/~domingm/craft_pics/coffeesleeve.jpg

I used a worsted weight chenille and size 7 (4.5mm) dpns

double increase: on same stitch knit in stitch below, knit stitch, knit stitch below.  then pull stitch off left needle.
seed stitch: k1p1 (making sure that on subsequent rows you aren't making ribbing, the k is over a p and vice versa)

pattern:
cast on 33, distribute across dpns, placing marker before 1st and 16th sts and join round (beign careful not to twist).  knit 4 rows of seed stitch.  On fifth row, do double increase before each marker (the rest of the row is still seed stitch.
repeat last 5 rows.  do 4 more rows of seed stitch. cast off. 

handle: at top edge, over one of the increasy bits, pick up 2 stitches and increase1 (3 sts total).  do about 4 inches of seed stitch.  cast off.  sew down bottom edge and a spot in the middle.

NOTE: I had two small bits of chenille in coordinating colors, so I just switched between them semi randomly.  This is a great way to use up those 1-2" diameter yarn balls you have lying around.

I love the handle!  It makes me giggle.  Does it actually work?

I just finished mine this afternoon at work. It's closer to the pattern ( I had eyelash yarn  leftover from my SnB Mod Cape project... I will be super stylish this winter.) I'm so ready to hit my local coffee shop ( where they know me as the token forienger who wants skim milk....)

All of my Japanese co-workers love it and one has suggested that if I make another one I should knit monster eyes and a mouth on it...she mentioned that with the eyes and face it could also be used to spruce up any one of the many dull "cup full of pencils" that adorn our desks.


I didn't have a spare cup around to photograph, so I now have a sassy container of sugar...

Were they easy to make? I want a little project to work on. And my uncle is java junkie who could use less burnt fingers!

They are totally easy to make, and fast!  Mine only took like half an hour, and the handle is the only finishing you have to do.  It works great!  The only problem is getting it onto a full cup of coffee without spilling (and scorching your fingers) Tongue

I recommend it as a little project. It was the first time I had ever knitted in the round with multiple needles. It did take a little getting used to ( and a bit of swearing at first trying to use multiple needles for the first time with eyelash yarn) but once I got it...well..I got it. I knitted a bit in the evening and finished it off my next day at work....satisfying results.
