    Great idea, Rachel! Water bottle sweat is horrible – especially if it dampens everything else in your bag. This is on my list of new patterns to try! :)

    Another amazing pattern. I whipped this one up while watching Tool Academy 3 online last night lol. I’m going to make more for the rest of my family. We’re big on water bottles.

    I made it into a carrier by adding the strap from your water bottle holder pattern http://www.crochetspot.com/crochet-pattern-water-bottle-holder/ and it looks great.

    Thank you.

    I made this for my boyfriend as a koozie for his fav beer, in a bottle. He loves it and I can wash it when it gets overused. GREAT IDEAS!! Love the site. – k

    I don’t think this is very practical, won’t the water get warm?

    Hey, you could make this out of absorbent “yarn” like sham-wow cut into strips & knotted together, or just really long skinny pieces if it comes in a big roll… Also, what about wrapping a cylinder (just tape, glue or staple one side closed) of the insulating foil wrap that ships cold items (about 1/4 inch thick) that would take care of the last lady’s concern, and would look much nicer with your custom crocheted bag surrounding/covering it!

    Hi, Everybody’!

    I just “wasted” a whole morning surfing this website, looking at the lessons and the patterns and the comments and the pictures and the lessons again, etc.

    The most fun I’ve had since Christmas! I’m waiting, now, for Amazon to deliver my hook-kit and I’m away!!

    Many thanks for the inspiration – I’m going to start simple, but will eventually make a whole load of Amigurumi!

    Hi Rachel, I used this pattern for a Father’s Day give away last month which I featured in my post linking back to your post here. http://gardenchefsneedleandpen.blogspot.com/2013/06/mommys-choice.html Thank you for the pattern!!!!

  11. Hi, Rachel! I bought something like this Water Bottle Cozy at a crafts fair a few years ago. It was done in an open DC stitch and was taller and had a strap. Just looking at it, I came up with a pattern for making it and ended up, after making a few dozen (they only take about an hour to make), settling on some “improvements” and now I really love this cozy and have made them for all my friends and family and I use mine ALL THE TIME. I make them in multi-color cotton yarns and also some lighter acrylic yarns with bits of foil. I also put a button or crocheted flower or a big brad on one side. They are so cool! — So, if you want to see photos or want my pattern (I’m not in business, so I just share my stuff), let me know! (My blogpage is all about the origami I teach at my two local libraries, but it’s a way to connect. Just be sure to use the gmail addy; for some reason Google won’t let me change the address on that account, from hotmail to gmail.)….. from Michila ///
