One of a Kind Coffee Cup Sleeve Pattern

Here’s how it works.

My One of a Kind Coffee Cup Sleeve Pattern was designed using 1 mini skein of Deluxe MCN Yarn that was sent to me Lora at Campfiber Yarns.

Campfiber Yarns also sent us a beautiful full-size skein of Deluxe MCN yarn to be given away in our March 2021 Yarn and Hook Giveaway.

Lora Camp runs Campfiber Yarns and her shop is located in Alberta, Canada.

A little about me and Campfiber Yarns. My name is Lora Camp and I am the maker behind Campfiber Yarns.

I’m a full time mama, and have recently taken on Campfiber full time after being an Elementary teacher for 7 years. The name “Campfiber Yarns” is a play on words with my last name of Camp, in combination with the idea that “yarns” can be another word for “tales” or “stories”. I began my journey in 2019, and continue to love and run my little business out of my basement and love every minute of it!

I love creating rich, moody colorways that really help tell that story. If you sign up for my newsletter, you can also get a 20% off discount code. I’d love to have you come and join the community!

The Color of the Month Theme for 2021 is Mythology and each month during the year a new colorway is released. March’s COTM can be found here.

Visit her shop online to see the wide range of yarn weights (see her yarn base information here) and beautiful colorways she has available.

I personally loved the Mini Skein I received. The color was so pretty and the yarn was so soft! It glided over my hook easily, it didn’t snag or split when I was working with it and when I frogged my project (three times) it didn’t fluff or pile.

After I played with it for a bit and tried some stitches and hooks, I decided I would make myself a new Cup Sleeve.

This quick project uses less than 1 mini skein (less than 60 yds) of Heavy Fingering Weight Yarn.

Stitch Anatomy


Quick Stitch Guide (Includes: Chain, single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet)

Slip Knot and Starting Chain


  • Stitch multiple is 6 + 2
  • The initial ch 2 does not count as a stitch and we do not work into it. You may want to mark the ch 2 to remind yourself.
  • The first hdc is worked in the very first st of the row (the same one that already has that ch 2 in it that we are not counting).
  • I work into the back bar (bump) of the chain stitches in the foundation row. The back bar (or third loop) is located immediately below the back loop of the stitch (on the back side of your work). You may work under the back loop if you prefer.
  • The bobble stitches should naturally pop through to the RS of your work. If they do not do this, nudge them to the RS of the project before your work the next row of the pattern.

Finishing Instructions:

With the RS of your project facing you, fold the project in half widthwise and line up the 2 side edges. Tip: The bobbles should be facing you. Thread the yarn end onto a yarn needle and whipstitch it through one loop from each edge. Continue whipstitching along the side edges in the same manner until you reach the opposite corner.  Weave in your end.

Weave in any remaining ends.
