Irish Flag Coffee Sleeve

Shout out to IKEA for this awesome impromptu photoshoot setting 😉



Hey there, friends and happy Monday!


I’m back! I have a new pattern and I hope you enjoy it! I’m a fan of St. Patrick’s Day, which is coming up this weekend, and can’t get Irish soda bread off my mind. It’s so delicious–if you haven’t had it, search for it in your local grocery store! They are delicious cold or warm and delightful with butter! But aside from bread, I think it’s a nice little cultural holiday, representative of my own cultural background, and wanted to come up with something fun to celebrate!


If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you already know that I am a HUGE fan of coffee sleeves. I think they are so versatile and I love creating new patterns to personalize my favorite cups of hot goodness–tea and coffee and hot cocoa oh my! Might as well have a different sleeve for every occasion, right? So I thought I’d go back to the drawing board and whip something up with some various colors I have in my possession.


Because coffee sleeves (or cozies) are so versatile, personalizable, and great stash busters, you don’t have to use the same colors that I did. You just need to know that this pattern is worked in worsted weight yarn and I will tell you what yarns I used in case you also have tidbits of those in your own stash! So let’s get to work!



5.0 H hook
Tapestry needle
Red Heart Super Saver in Pumpkin
Red Heart Super Saver in White
Impeccable in Kelly Green


Terms Used (US):

sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
ch = chain
st/sts = stitch/stitches


With hook and Kelly Green, ch 32, and slip stitch to beginning of chain to form a loop, taking care not to twist the chain
Round 1: Ch 1, sc into first chain of base, sc into each stitch around, sl st to beginning ch 1
Rounds 2-3: Ch 1, sc into sl st and all sts around, sl st to beginning chain

Introduce your next color, White, however which way you feel comfortable. I personally feel more comfortable binding off my previous color and then introducing my new color with a slip stitch, though others feel okay with doing their color change as they’re finishing off the last stitch of the previous Round. Go with whatever makes you feel better as a crafter and your confidence level, and start your next round

Round 4: Once your new color is introduced, ch 1, sc into your newly created sl st, sc around and sl st to beginning chain
Rounds 5-6: Ch 1, sc into sl st, sc around to beginning, sl st to beginning chain


Now throw in your final color: Pumpkin. Keep your color change consistent, so whatever you did with your previous change, keep it up!


Rounds 7-9: Ch 1, sc into sl st, sc around to beginning, sl st to beginning chain.

After the end of Round 9, bind off and weave in all of your ends


Your new coffee sleeve is ready to party!



Hope you guys have a great St. Patrick’s Day! I’ll catch you all soon 🙂
