Woolly Warm hands: a hot-drinks cup sleeve
by Elijah K.
This is a WiP (Work in progress), so I have no real right to post this, but I’m doing it anyway. This sleeve is worked from the top down, because I started too big for the bottom.
Yarn: DK or worsted weight wool blend
Hook: 5 mm (H-6) or whatever hook you need to obtain this gauge
13 cm high (or so), and whatever circumference (I haven’t measured)
3 tr: 1.75 cm long, 1.5 cm tall, or about that. Those are just my measurements
turning chain: tch
slip stitch: sl st
triple crochet: tr
double crochet: dc
Ch 46, join to first ch by sl st.
R1: Make a turning ch of 3, dc 51 into ring, join into the top of the tch by sl st.
R2: Tch of 4, *tr 2 together, tr 2, repeat from* until you get to 3 sts from the tch, tr 2 together, tr, join to the top of the tch by sl st.
R3: Tch of 4, *tr 2 together, tr, repeat from* until you get to the tch, sl st in the top of it.
R4-9: Tch of 4, *tr 2 together, tr, repeat from * until you get to 0, 1, or 2 sts of the tch. If 2, tr 2 together, sl st in the top of the tch. If 1, tr , then sl st in the top of the tch. If you are at the tch, sl st into the top of it.
Cut yarn, then pull all of it through the loop and tighten it. Then cut both loose ends to 3 cm, and weave them in on the inside.
