In this tutorial, I have shown how you can make this super easy crochet water bottle cozy.
One night, just before saying goodbye, my daughter reminded me that she had to take a water bottle with a shoulder strap for her school field trip.
Oh no! I had completely forgotten about it and I was in no mood to run to Walmart. Then I remembered seeing water bottle cozies in some Facebook group and decided to make one. This cozy did not require any pattern and it took me a little over an hour to make.
To make this, all you have to know is,
The flat circle will be used as a base for the cozy. As I was running out of time, I used the lemon coaster that I had made (tutorial here).
Chain 3 and this will be counted as first double crochet. Chain 3 more, skip 2 stitches and make a double crochet. Repeat chain 3, skip 2 and add one double crochet stitch till the end.
Once the row is done, end it with a slip stitch and start next row. I positioned the double crochet in the next row in the chain space instead of stacking the double crochets one on top of each other. When a water filled water bottle is placed inside, the cozy will get stretched a little and space between stitches will have a pretty honeycomb shape.
I added a strap with double crochet stitches.
And added a little flower for decoration.
She was very surprised and happy with this. Now I have been ordered to make one for her BFF 😀
