A Stash Busting Project

These crochet coffee sleeves are great stash busters!

You don’t need much yarn to make one and they work up really fast and are perfect for on-the-go projects.

I used leftovers of Paintbox Simply Chunky Yarns and another yarn in the same weight I don’t have the label for that has little bits in it.

You could use your favorite cotton yarns, acrylic, wool, or blend for your coffee cozy.
