I work at a coffee shop, so I've made TONS of crocheted coffee sleeves for my fellow baristas. Didn't think of taking pictures as I made them...this is the only one actually at the coffee shop right now, so it's the only one I'm posting. (If you put the pictures together, it says "Kathy").

I make most of them the same, anyway: 7 rows of tunisian/afghan/idiot crochet, about 27-30 sts long, crossstitch the name, then join ends to make a circle/sleeve. I made some of them double thick so they're reversible and I also put a small pocket on some others.

FYI: These are really really easy and really really quick and a super great way to keep your drink hot OR cold without double cupping or using a disposable cardboard sleeve.

Thanks for viewing!

What is tunisian/afghan/idiot crochet?

(To The Tune of "The Llama Song")Here's a needle, there's a needle, and some yarn between the needles, cast on, knit, purl, always knitting, knitty, knitty, purl.

These are beautifully done. What a great idea! I'm sure they do come in handy and will make great Christmas presents for my co-workers! Thanks for posting these!

Very cool ~ I, too, make tons of these.   My favorite one right now is this one (the one I used today).  I made it out of wool yarn and felted (well, really fulled it) it.  I so love this one!  Ignore the bad phone (camera phone) - lol!!

Thanks for sharing yours!  I love how you put names on them!!  Very cool!
