  • SC - Single Crochet

  • Drop Stitch (we will just be dropping to the row directly beneath the working row)

*This pattern is designed to fit a standard Starbucks reusable mug.

Coffee Sleeve Base:

With purple, chain 35

Rows 1-4: SC in each stitch, chain 1 (34 stitches)

on the last stitch of the 4th row, switch to green leaving a long purple tail

Rows 5-13: SC in each stitch, chain 1 (34 stitches)

on the last stitch of the 13th row, switch to black leaving a long green tail

Row 14: SC in the first 3 stitches, drop stitch in the next*, chain 1 (34 stitches)

Row 15: SC in each stitch, chain 1 (34 stitches)

Tie off with a long black tail.


Turn the side you like best to the inside and stitch the ends together using the corresponding long tail colors. Tie off and trim any excess yarn. Turn right side out.


Secure the eyes; I used a wire cutter to snip the excess plastic from the eye posts. This helps the eyes to lay flatter against your mug.

Using a yarn needle and black yarn stitch on a cute little mouth.

Don't forget to pin this pattern for later!

I hope you have enjoyed creating with me!
