This java jacket will add a bit of spice to your early morning coffee routine. Worked in the round, this project is quick to make and fun to take! This coffee cuff replaces all those flimsy paper sleeves to keep your hands cool and clean. Just throw it in your purse or briefcase, and you're good to go! Choose an easy care yarn for washability, or use your leftover favorite worsted wools. Great one-skein wonder!
Note: I want to note that if your cozy doesn't spiral like mine, you are not alone. I'm not sure why, but it's entirely possible that my way of crocheting makes this project bias more than usual for me. It may just be that I crochet a bit tighter than some of you, but I notice when I'm working it up, it wants to lean one way, then I give it a good twist when it is finished, and it stays that way. Several people have commented that it doesn't spiral for them. Yours may have straight lines up and down. You can try to twist it a bit once it's finished to see if that makes it spiral more. Sorry for any confusion!
Not crucial for this project, this project works up so quickly, it can be your gauge swatch! Just get one of your favorite coffee shop cups, and test to see if it fits after a few rows.

Once upon a time, I lived in a small town and saw something crocheted and just HAD to learn what it was and how to do it. I was 11, and I haven't stopped since - I can honestly say that crocheting has been a huge part of my life. I decided to learn how to knit about 9 years ago, after being intimidated by it for a long time. So glad I finally learned!
I started actively designing in 2008 and haven't looked back. I used to sit down and create items for myself because I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for in other patterns. Then one day it dawned on me that I should try to write my ideas up for others. And here I am!
