I made this coffee cozy as part of a Mother's Day gift for my mom this spring.  She is a Starbucks fiend so it was kind of a joke to make something to keep her numerous Venti Lattes extra hot like she likes them!!



I forgot all about making this until I saw the sweater SlickMariaVic is making on this thread
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=193819.20

Thanks for looking!

Very nice!  Is it a continuous pattern all the way around or is there a seam somewhere?
I want to try cables, and I'm thinking a small project like this would be an ideal first try.

There is a seam in the back that I just sewed up.  Maybe next time I will do I provisional cast on and use kitchner stitch to graft it together.  I didn't know how to do that then- Tongue

It is perfect for practicing a cable!

It's not really an original pattern, it's a horseshoe cable I got from the lion brand site - although I'm not a big fan of LB, they have a great website for patterns and now have a stitch pattern and cable directory.
 http://cache.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/faq-search.cgi?store=/stores/eyarn&faqKey=302

You could really use any cable pattern you like. I basically  just added four knit stitches to the beginning and end of each row.

Here's the pattern
worsted weight yarn &  size US 6 needles
(I think I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran- it was left over from my Fetching Mitts)

CO 20 sts

row 1- k 20
row 2- k4, p12, k4
row 3- k 20
row 4- k4, p12, k4
row 5- k4, c6b, c6f, k4
row 6- k4, p12, k4
row 7- k 20
row 8- k4, p12, k4
row 9- k20
row 10- k4, p12, k4

repeat these 10 rows until it reaches around cup a little snug (can't remember how long)
BO
stitch ends together
(c6b=slip 3 sts onto cable needle, hold to back,k3 then k3 from cable ndl.)
(c6f=slip 3 sts onto cable needle, hold to front,k3 then k3 from cable ndl.)

This is so cute, and such a great idea.  Roll Eyes
I've never done cables before but, this'll be a great small project to learn with.
I'd really like to make some for my parents as, they're big Tim Horton's fans. I only have a size small Tim Horton's paper cup.
So I was wondering if anybody would happen to know the size of a Tim Horton's cup, for a size medium and large?
I'd really appreciate any help with the sizes of those particular cups.  Grin
And thank you so much, for sharing such an adorable pattern.

I first saw your sweet coffee cup sleeve on treehugger.com... (or maybe it was readymade magazine's website?), which had a link to another site, and then here to craftster.  I was so excited that I had to go out that day and buy another needle so I could do the cabeling!  I was surprised at how easy it is!   Cheesy  

Sorry for the crappy phone pic... there's something wrong with my digital camera and couldn't wait to borrow my boyfriends.

I forget what brand yarn this is, I had it left over from a calorimetry I made last winter.  It's worsted weight though, and I used size 5 needles.  I had to repeat the 10 rows 6 times, and it fits it perfectly!

They all look so nice. I went out and got some different sized cups, so that I can make some.
But I was wondering if anyone would know, how I could make them wider?
Other than just adding onto the knit stitches at each end.
Maybe I could somehow add onto the cable? I don't have the knowledge, to figure out how to do this.
Any help, please?     Roll Eyes

I've made a ton of these, but this one happens to be my favorite design and color.  I've used other cable knit patterns from lionbrand's website.

Thanks for the neat idea!

I recently made a whole bunch of similar cozies as a fundraiser: http://nobaddays.wordpress.com/2010/03/01/hearting-haiti/

I've been meaning to learn how to knit cables and this DOES look like the perfect start.

BTW, they are just as handy for Starbucks iced drinks. I always carry one in my purse.
