Cable Knit Coffee Sleeve

So I’ve got back into the groove of knitting lately and I’m so glad I did! I made this really cute coffee sleeve! It looks like it may be complicated but I promise you, it most definitely is one of the simplest things I have made.

This would be a great thing to make for yourself (I’ve gotten a few comments already on how cute it is :)) or a great gift to give to someone! Christmas is fast approaching! Plus, who doesn’t love to receive a homemade gift anyway?
