DIY crocheted glass bottle cozy...

You will need to have a basic knowledge of crochet to make these.

you'll need:
a bottle, 1/2 skein cotton yarn and a size .5 or .6 needle

1 You will be making a flat disk that is almost the size of the bottle's base.
2 To make a circle you will need to make a chain of 7 links. Then connect the circle by making a single crochet stitch in the first chain link.
3 The first row will be 2 stitches in each link. The second + row[s] will be alternating between 1 single crochet stitch then 2 single crochet stitches in the second. Repeat until the disk is the size you want.
4 Once your circle is the size of your bottle's base, begin the next rows with only 1 stitch in each.
You will do that over and over until you've reached the height you want for your cozy.
5 Cut the yarn, tie it off and weave the extra back into your cozy.


For those who would like to know the how-to steps, here you go!

  4. Thank you! Although baby bottles are not my current reality, I used your directions to make a cute tube for my camera lenses. I added a drawstring at the top to keep the lens nice and snug. Just what I was looking for!!

  6. Thanks so much for sharing this pattern--I have been looking for something like this, to 'wrap' dish soap bottles that I give as gifts with crochet dishcloths. I'm going to try this over the weekend!

  7. I would love to use this pattern to make covers from some mason jars, but I'm not familiar with the size hooks you're using - .5 or .6? I can't find that size anywhere.
