I designed this quick knit "Cup Cuddler" as a series of connected meandering leaves. It is seamed, pieced, and blocked. I recommend you use cotton yarn for a cold beverage sleeve and a wool/wool blend yarn for a hot beverage sleeve. This is a fun way to learn how to knit a new knit stitch and for using up those bits of yarn in your left over stash.
