This Pumpkin Spice Cup Sleeve is a super quick project that can easily be completed in an afternoon. I used an acrylic/wool blend from my stash, but just about any dk or light worsted yarn will work nicely. The stitch looks like stranded colorwork, but in fact it is an easy Brick and Mortar Stitch. No stranding required.
