My Dad keeps a water bottle with him while he is out, so I wanted to make him a cozy for it. Can anyone point me to any good patterns?
I'd just knit a big tube sock looking thingy. That's what I make for my water bottles. Lemme see if I can find a pic of it fer ya.
Here are two free patterns.
Ummm....I"m not positive Ingrid, but I think she means the kind you drink from. I guess you could drink from those, but it might look mighty weird! :roflhard:
:doh: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:
You COULD put cold water in them!!!!!!!! Where was my mind? :rofling:
Maybe you had a tummy ache. :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:
there is a pattern in a book i have-it's called knit wit by amy singer- and it looks like a great pattern. it's make to fit a normal sized water bottle. (like the dasni water bottles-i think). you can buy the book on amazon, but i dont know if it would be a your library or bookstore or not. i could also PM you it.
I've seen Amy Singer's book in the bookstore (Chapters, for example, and other local shops) and I've also borrowed it from my local library. Give it a try!
Maybe this pattern??
You could probably knit a few more rows too.
Here's my water bottle. All I did was measure how big around it is (lets say 8 inches) then I take the yarn I am using and knit a swatch in the needles I like to go with it. Now you have to knit a swatch in the round since the piece will be knit in the round. So lets say I've got 5 st per inch. 5 x 8 = 40 (right :?? ) so you cast on 40 stiches. Then I knit just knit for as long as you want (for this bottle holder I was knittin crazy so its a little too big but it gets the job done) Then when yer about an inch from the bottm start decreasing. Just like you do a sock. Or you could just do a decrease every 6 inches like the top of a hat. then you get down to just a few stiches, cut yarn and draw up. voila
That's purty, Femmy! I'll bet it gets some comments!
I bet a FELTED one would help keep his water nice and cold!!
Thank you so much for all the help, tips, & ideas that you guys are giving me!
for the record...i feel silly that i didn't look here in the first place.....cleverly disguised under the name "Bottle Sock" :doh:
This is the one i actually went looking for...you could make the bottle jacket longer i would think and felt it...
HERE'sa felted one that could be EASILY adapted for a water bottle!
That is a cool one, Kelly! It has a handle!!
This one is for a baby bottle, but you could make it longer and leave off the handle.http://www.ornaghi.it/modelli_en/peluche_portabiberon.htm
