Minion Coffe Cup Sleeve Crochet Pattern

I am totally in love with the minions from Despicable Me. So I decided to make my very own cup sleeve for the paper cups you get your takeout coffee in.  It only took me maybe a total of two hours and thats with a few stops to tend to the little eggplant! I hope you all think he is as cute as I do!

You could also do the hair differently and even make two eyes instead of one. The great thing is how many ways you can change it up once you have the basic sleeve.

blue yarn (like a jean color)
yellow yarn
black yarn
white yarn
gray yarn
G needle

CH - Chain
SL ST - Slip Stitch
HDC - Half double crochet
FO - Finish Off
HDC Increase - HDC twice in same stitch
SC - single crochet
MR - Magic Ring

CH 30 in blue yarn
SL ST ch together to form circle, ch1
HDC around (30) HDC, SL ST to first stitch
change to yellow yarn, HDC increase, HDC around SL ST to first stitch,  31 HDC
HDC around x3, SL ST to first stitch at end of each round
change to black, HDC around, SL ST to first HDC
change back to yellow, HDC around x3, SL ST to first stitch at end of each round

Eye (s)
MR, SC 5 in black
change to white, HDC Increase in each SC around, 10
Change to grey SC, SC increase in next around, FO 15
sew onto sleeve

Sew the mouth however you want your minion to look. Keep him bald or add a little bit of hair but make him your own! Enjoy on a cup full of hot yummy coffee (or pumpkin spice latte which is what I am getting ASAP). =]
