Rose Crochet Coffee Sleeve Pattern


  • 1-2 colors of worsted/medium 4 yarn,
  • H-8 hook for sleeve and roses, E-4 for tiny leaves
  • Yarn needle

Stitch abbreviations/terminology:

  • Chain → ch
  • Slip stitch → sl st
  • Single crochet → sc
  • Half double crochet → hdc
  • Double crochet → dc
  • Increase (2 hdc in 1 st) → inc

Important for this project:

For this project, work in rows to avoid shifting of the
look/pattern. (You can work in rounds following the
same steps, just don’t join your rounds.)

**In each row, use alternating the 3rd or front loop
for all hdcs to create the knit look. In even rows (2,
4, 6, 8(for sc)), use 3rd loop which is right below the
back loop. In uneven rows (3, 5, 7), use front loop.

***You can increase the size of the sleeve by
repeating row 7 till you reach the desired height.

For wider sleeves, add more chs before you start
with row 1.

Switch it up: change colors every/every second row
to make a striped sleeve. Add a crochet heart,
flower, character, a big button, or some beads.
