Thanks for the pattern. I've thought about making a knit paper cup sleeve many times but never got around to sitting down to do it. I'll be sure and give you credit Cathy.

I made a bunch of something very like this for this past Christmas. Then I got gift cards and cups at a coffee shop, filled the cups with some goodies like homemade chocolate covered spoons, some cookies and candies and a packet of hot cocoa and gave them to all f the nieces and nephews for their gifts this year. Worked out great!
