Leaf Cup Cuddler

I designed this beverage sleeve as a series of connected meandering leaves. Hand knit out of a luxuriously soft wool blend of 50% Acrylic 40% Wool 10% Nylon, it is completely machine washable. The fiber content also makes it a wonderful insulator as well as a hand protector. It works well with both cold and hot beverage cups. It does a good job at catching those pesky drips, too! This leaf cuddler also works wonderfully on a porcelain cup like the eco ”I’m not a paper cup” coffee cups. It's available and ready to ship to you.

I originally designed this quick knit Cup Cuddler as a PDF knitting pattern. It is seamed, pieced, and blocked. I recommend cotton yarn for a cold beverage Cup Cuddler and a wool/wool blend yarn for a hot beverage Cup Cuddler. It's a great pattern for using up those bits of yarn in your left over stash beause it only requires approximately 20-25 yards of yarn in a worsted weight.
