Flip Flop Drink Sleeve – Graph & Pattern

This post may contain affiliate links. Any purchases made through these links will not cost you any extra but they do provide a small percentage to me to help keep my blog going.

Did you know that today is National Flip Flop Day? I love flip flops in the summer and this graph is great to use for many things but I personally love it to make a Flip Flop Drink Sleeve. This also lets me enjoy my flip flops year round and not just in the summer. There are two sizes for this pattern, a can size and a cup size, and both in single crochet and Tunisian. This pattern originally appeared on the Cre8tion Crochet blog as one of my contributions there. You can find more of my patterns over there and some other great contributor patterns as well.

Farmyard Friends – Crochet Graphs

I have some new crochet graphs available to purchase in my store. Please welcome the Farmyard Friends! I have not put them on Ravelry yet because they are standalone graphs that can be plugged into any of my patterns that call for a 16×16 graph and can also be used in the wrister patterns from Sick ‘Lil Monkeys which can be found here and here.

These particular graphs work really great for sippy cup covers. As with all my individual graph patterns, the graph comes rotated 3 ways to allow you to choose how to work it.
