Free Pattern – Hot Geek Coffee Sleeve

Our local coffee shop has recently started selling reusable coffee sleeves as a way to get people to stop using the cardboard throw away ones. After seeing that they charge about $5.00 a piece for them I figured I could easily whip some up from scrap yarn. There was a lot of interest in this one I made for Matt so I thought I’d share the pattern.
8 - Hot Geek Coffee Sleeve
The design on this sleeve is binary code & spells out “hot” across each line. Its great for computer geeks (like Matt) & always a bit of a conversation starter when we pull it out at the coffee shop.

2 colors of scrap worsted weight yarn (I used Paton’s Classic Wool)

Work the binary code chart twice. Make sure to wrap yarns when changing colors to prevent holes.
