Not all Peach N Cream is Warshclothes


Took a break from the Warshrag addiction. Only because I went to the movies Saturday (X-Men 3, good special FX, little plot, little acting, IMO. Great Halle Berry hair though)and didn't think I could find those slip stitches in the dark.
What to make...what to make... AhHaa! It's summer here in Nebraska and my Nalgene bottle sweats everywhere. Look I have oodles of absorbent cotton yarn, and voila! The water bottle cozy. The cotton is absorbent without getting goopy, it stops people at work from drinking out of the wrong container, and you can hardly see the mistakes because of the colour. (look, it was the movies, it was dark)

Stay healthy and well.

do you have a basic pattern you followed??? I would love one to make one of those.

I'd love to know how you made your water bottle cozy too!

I used a crochet hook to make a chain long enough (just long enough) to go around the bottle, picked up the stitches, knit in K3/P3 spiral rib (every three rows you shift one stitch) and finished it with 5 rows of garter stitch. Nothing to it!

Very cute. And thanks for the patt. Does it have a bottom? That doesn't sound right. Is there a bottom knitted on the cozy?

That's what I need. My Nalgene sweats everywhere. It's especially hot here in Kansas City.
