Irish Coffee Cozy
HeartStrings knitting pattern #S112
Go Green with this cute beaded shamrock cup cozy to celebrate luck and laughter in the Irish tradition.
Forego cardboard sleeves at your local coffee shop and use instead this attractive beaded cup huggie to turn plain coffee into a no-added-calorie, non-alcoholic way of making "Irish coffee".
Need a gift idea? Knit some for co-workers and friends, even if they are not Irish.
Basic knit stitch and an easy beading technique combine to make this cup sleeve quick and fun.
No special sizing is required, either. Thanks to stretchy garter stitch and chain stitch selvedges, Irish Coffee Cozy fits takeout cups from small to large.
Pattern includes detailed instructions for no-sew minimalist seaming using a combination of simple half-hitch cast on and 3-needle bind off.
2½ inches wide; 7 inch circumference un-stretched (garter stitch will stretch to fit a wide range of cup sizes)
30 yards fingering weight yarn and 243 size 8/0 (3 mm diameter) seed beads. 7½ stitches/inch over garter stitch, size US 1 / 2.25 mm needles suggested. Charted and written stitch instructions. For more details, download the free PDF preview of the cover page below.
