  1. Absolutly adorable! My husband always has a roll of tp around to use instead of kleenex...this is the solution to the unsightly roll laying around. Besides we LOVE coffee! Thank you soooo much for sharing!

  2. Oh, this is awesome. I just found the link to this from Ravelry when searching for Coffee Cups. I was going to make my friend a little tiny Amigurumi Coffee Cup, but this would be so much better!

  3. Please help. I'm making this thank you for this but I'm having a problem with the "coffee". I did the 2 sc to get 12 but on row 3 I'm getting 16 stitches not 18. This is throwing the final count out also. Please help. Thanks Jackie

  4. Jackie,
    Each round increases by 6 stitches. Double check to make sure you did an increase in every other stitch on that third round.

    (For everyone, as I know there has been an issue with the coffee part) Keep in mind also that I used a bulky weight yarn for the coffee. If you are using worsted weight, just add more rows and increase 6 stitches on each round until there are 48 sc in the last round.

  5. please help i am having a hard time with the coffee part... for some reason my stitch count is not right. i get the 12 but then on the next row i get 16 not 18 and then this throws the whole thing off.. also, i dont understand the handle part. i did the crochet but cant understand the assembly part..... please help.......

  6. row 3 say to sc in each of the next 2 stitches not every other stitch...... or am i reading this wrong? this is the first pattern that I AM ABLE TO DO, (except for this part) lol. can you also explain the handle part? i dont understand what you mean by inbetween the 3 and 4 th row. can you put up a picture of how it would go or explain to this newbie on reading patterns.... THANK YOU SO MUCH i am so happy to be making this.....

  7. I can't believe I never realized the problem with row three. There was a mistake in the pattern, so it wasn't you, it was me! Arggh! I've corrected the pattern and it should work for you now. I'm very sorry about that. I try to be as accurate as possible and have people test when possible, but some things slip past. :(

    As for the handle, after you've folded into thirds length-wise you just position it approximately where rows 3 and 4 meet and sew along that line, and then do the same thing for the other end somewhere along rows 9 and 10. It's just a guideline really, you can position the handle wherever you think it looks best.

  8. See it took someone who can't read patterns to figure it out. Lol. It's funny I changed the numbers on my pattern and got the numbers to come out right and was going to tell you but u beat me to it. Now I just have to figure out how to sew the circle in. I'm going to figure out a different way. Maybe not sew the cup in a round but in a square and then close it up around the circle. Lol. Thank you I am enjoying the pattern and appreciate you sharing.

  9. Oh crap. 3-4 on the cup not on the handle. Now I got it. I love videos. Hint hint.

  10. I don't know if you are still answering questions or not, but I will try. I would like to make these TP covers and sell them at my grandson's school craft fair next November. I make hat covers that sell well, but these are darling. I don't want to step on your toes, so what do you want me to do? You can reach me at thanks

  11. My grandma will love this! Going to make it for her birthday!!

  12. This is awesome. I can't wait to try to make it. I'm just starting out so I hope it goes well. Thank you so much for the pattern!

  13. This is so cute . I love it.

  14. Oooh, so cute. I was searching for tissue box covers and stumbled upon this pattern! After Christmas I have to try it, thanks for sharing!
