Knit Bottle Cozy

You will need:

  • medium weight yarn
  • Size 5 knitting needles
  • 4 double sided knitting needles size 8 (you can use size 5 but you will need to do a few more rounds to make the bottom the right size)
  • 4.5mm crochet hook
  • double sided stitch holder (better if you have same size as needles)
  • darning needle
  • stitch marker

stitches:

  • k= knit
  • P= purl
  • C4F = cable 4 front
  • C4B= cable 4 back
  • hsc = half single crochet

Directions for C4F:

  1. Slip 2 stitches onto holder
  2. Holding stitches in front of work K2 from the main needle
  3. K2 from the holding needle

Directions for C4B:

  1. Slip 2 stitches onto holder
  2. Holding stitches in back of work K2 from the main needle
  3. K2 from the holding needle

Directions for hsc:

  1. Insert hook into stitch
  2. Yarn over
  3. draw threw stitch
  4. Yarn over
  5. Draw threw only the yarn from step 3

This will leave you with loops from previous hsc.

Pattern:

For sides of cozy:

  1. Cast on 60 stitches (15 sets of 4)
  2. C4F across row
  3. P across row
  4. C4B across row
  5. P across row
  6. repeat steps 2-5 until desired height ( I did 13 repeats for a total of 14 times)
  7. Knit off leaving a long tail for sewing up.

You can watch a video of how I did this Here.

For bottom of cozy

Using the crochet hook to start (You can knit 6 stitches in a magic circle but I prefer using a crochet hook)

  1. Ch2
  2. In second ch from hook do 5 hsc
  3. transfer 2 loops onto 3 of the double sided needles

Using only the double sided needles now you will be knitting in the round

  1. K2 stitches in each loop around your needles
  2. K1 stitch in each loop around your needles (You will want to put a stitch marker in before starting this round so you know when you have completed it)
  3. *K2 stitches in next loop, K1 stitch in next loop* repeat from * to * around the needles
  4. Repeat rows 2-3 until circle is large enough for your bottle.( I did 2 repeats for a total of 3 times ) Always make sure you end on row 3 so there is no problem knitting off.
  5. Knit off . I like to take the crochet hook at the end and do a slipstitch to attach to the ends of the circle.

You can watch a video of how I did the circle here.

For the strap

make one long handle or two short if you wish

Using the size 5 knitting needles.

  1. Cast on 6 stitches
  2. K1 row
  3. P1 row
  4. repeat rows 2-3 until desired length. (I did 120 rows you can do it so your cozy’s strap fits for you)
  5. Knit off

Directions for attaching everything using a darning needle.

  1. sew the sides of cozy body together to form a tube
  2. sew the circle on to the bottom of the cozy body
  3. attach the strap where you would like it on the top. (I did it straight across from each other as I did one long handle)

Now your ready to go out and take your drink bottle with you in a pretty cozy that will help keep it cold or warm.
