new crochet pattern - felted coffee cuff by tara schreyer.

Skill Level: Easy

I'm all for using a regular re-useable to-go cup but sometimes you simply forget or are in such a hurry that you don't have time to grab it on your way out. But when you find yourself in the coffee shop for your morning coffee, you can at least pass on the paper sleeve. You can use a re-usable cuff that you have created instead!!

This is a crochet and felting pattern. The designs on the coffee cuffs in the pictures have been needle felted on and the sketches for a dragonfly, butterfly, and ladybug have been included in the pattern if you desire to use them. But really, there is no limit to what you can design on them.

Some basic knowledge of needle felting is required as the pattern doesn't explain the process of needle felting. However, you can find information right here on our blog (far down in the posting).

The pattern calls for 100% wool and is crocheted using simple stitches. After felting, the coffee cuff measures 2.75" high and 5" wide. It should fit most medium or large to-go coffee cups.

The pattern also includes figure pictures and simple instructions on how to felt.
