When standing at the pier, with the cool breeze around you, you ask for nothing but a hot cup of Joe!
Every time I visit Starbucks or any local cafe to get a hot beverage to go, they give paper coffee cup sleeves to insulate the drinker’s hands from hot coffee. But after learning crochet, I wanted to make something reusable to avoid paper. This ‘Save Paper’ agenda helped me work towards something that is both; interesting and creative. I started checking out various styles of cup cosies or various stitching styles that can be used for cup cosies.
While browsing the internet for interesting cup cosy patterns, I stumbled upon Yarnspirations- Breast Cancer Awareness Cup Cozy pattern. I started looking for scraps of yarn into my Stash Basket to create this pattern, and yes there it was bits of white, brown and pink yarn. I had a wonderful idea, now serving more purposes; a beautiful cup cosy, an interesting & creative one to carry around, and something to create awareness of breast cancer!
I felt so happy that I created two. There you go, Ladies! 2 cup sleeves with Breast Cancer Awareness Moto on it.
- Circumference of the upper circle: 10″
- Circumference of the lower base: 9.5″
- The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
- You can give a defined edging.
- The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
- Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
- Instead of going for a different colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
- The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.
Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
