This is a quick and easy little pattern that I whipped up the other day. You see, I drink my coffee on the front porch each and every morning and things tend to blow into my cup. I'm always fishing something (bugs) out of it and it drives me nuts. So...I figured, why not make something to cover my cup so I don't have to keep doing this. This is what I came up with.
This is what it looks like flat. Yes, I know that the outer decorative edge curls in a bit. I wanted it to do that. So it's ok.
This is what it looks like on my favorite cup.
Since I used some yarn out of my stash of leftover yarn balls, this is a Stash Buster Project as well as being something useful. I think that's great!
