Tutorial: Simple Coffee Cup Holder

In an effort to make my patterns as clear as possible I’ve decided to make a short photo tutorial for my first pattern Simple Coffee Cup Holder. You can also find it on Ravelry if you want to add it to your queue or projects page. I know some people do better with visuals so I hope this will be helpful. Alright, let’s get started!

After you cast on you’ll do Row 2 a total of 7 times (which is Row 2 + Row 3’s repeats added together). This is what your knitting should look like after those 7 rounds.

By now you’ll be on Row 4 of the pattern which is the row that you will need your cable needle. Below is a photo of where your cable needle (CN) should be after sliding 3 stitches to the CN and then knitting the next 3 stitches.

After you have finished working through Row 4 your knitting should look like this:

This brings you to pattern row five. You will then repeat Pattern row two another 7 times. Again, here’s what your knitting should look like after completing those rounds.

Now you are ready to do the cable row again (you should be on pattern row six but you are simply repeating row four). After working through the repeat of Row 4 with your CN, your knitting should look like this:

Now you are ready for the last bit! Repeat pattern row two 6 times and then bind off purlwise (or however you prefer). Weave in your 2 ends and Ta-da!! You are done!

Enjoy your new coffee cup holder or gift it to someone who’s friendly and nice. I sincerely hope this has been helpful. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask!

*The yarn I used is Lion Brand’s Cotton-Ease in the Berry colorway.
