Water Bottle Koozie FREE Pattern

Here is a simple pattern that I designed. I used Schachenmayr Punto yarn which is a little thinner than Worsted Weight, but feel free to use whatever cotton you have on hand. You can make it with 2 colors like I have, or use 1 color, or make stripes if you want, have fun with it. I have also included a 2nd option at the bottom if you would rather not have the leaf pattern on there. If you find any problems with the pattern please let me know & I'll get them fixed. I have used mine many, many times & I just throw it in the washer & dryer with the rest of the laundry and it comes out great every time. I like to freeze my water then it will melt & stay cold for a long time in this!

I am working on creating this same pattern but starting at the top & working down to the decreases instead of starting at the bottom & increasing... I will post that here when it is finished. I'm thinking that might be a bit easier.


Thanks!! Hope you enjoy the pattern!!

LOVE it! Can't wait to give it a whirl, but Abby's coat comes after the second Jay, which I really hope to finish tonight...
