DIY Yarn coffee cup inspiration

It's back to school time, both for myself and my oldest son ( he just got into GATE this year and I am so proud!) and in my house this means COFFEE! I was given one of these diy coffee cups and At first I though ooo I could scrapbook something awesome.... But then I though what if I crocheted something?? The cup I have smashed the lace I made with this 2 ply yarn. However I think thread would fit perfectly!!!!

SO here is a project anyone even children can do!!

less than one ball of Yarn 3 ply or 2 ply
I used Scarps of Vanna's Glamour left over from this pattern (Oh my CHIQ stars scarf )
customizable coffee cup

Step 1
unscrew the cup

Step 2
Starting at the bottom wrap yarn around the cup.
Try to wrap closely so there are not hug black gaps, try not to over lap too much so it it not thick.
To help it from unraveling when you first start with a 6 inch tail and wrap over it as you go.

Step 3
When you reach the top tuck your tail in and screw the cup back together.

* Have fun with this! Use different types of yarn in the same cup or crochet something in thread! I would love to see anyone's finished cup!

oooo And I found these cups at
99 cent store

finger crochet cowl

Hey everyone! I took a ball of Lionbrand Heartland Thick and Quick with me to an Angel baseball game. I always bring yarn because while going to games is fun the boys in my life enjoy them far more than I do! This project to only took me 1/2 of an inning to create so it you want something quick this is your project.

I only used 1/2 of the ball but you can get an extreme one by using the whole ball... it would be perfect for cooler weather.

I started by making a slip knot with my fingers.
Then I wrapped the yarn around my index finger and pulled through so that I was chaining with my fingers. See photos below. After you have finger crocheted the length you want, I did 1/2 the ball knot the end, wrap around your neck to the desired length and use about 6 inches to wrap around all the strands like the photos show. I weaved in my ends or you can use fabric glue to make it super secure. Any 5 ply or 6 ply yarn can be used to make this.I have a kids tutorial for finger crochet here

And her…
