Quick Valentine’s Day Cup Sleeve Crochet Pattern

This quick cup sleeve crochet pattern is worked in single crochet, in rounds. The pattern is available in 3 different sizes, depending on how snug you want the sleeve to fit.

I am able to stretch the smallest sleeve over the largest coffee cup at my favorite coffee chains but if you like a coffee cup sleeve that slides on easily, make the large size sleeve. For just a bit of stretch, make the medium size. It’s really all about how you like the sleeve to feel on the cup, with a bit of wiggle or none at all.

You can easily change the colors of yarn for the coffee cup sleeve for other occasions too! Then add your holiday themed embellishment (applique) and you are ready to go!
