Once considered old fashioned, hot water bottles have become a new trend, and stylish cozies for hot water bottles are popping up everywhere!
This knit-look cozy crochets up quickly, and the main body is a 4 row repeat that is easy to memorize. The cozy is designed to slip easily over your bottle and features a button-up closure on the back side.
This crochet pattern calls for 1¾ skeins of Cascade Yarns® 220 [100 g (3.53 oz)/201 meters (220 yds) per skein], which is a worsted weight (4). The pattern features the blue (Summer Sky - 7815) cozy and you should be comfortable with the following stitches and techniques: adjustable ring, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, front post double crochet, back post double crochet, front post treble crochet, half double crochet 2 together, front post double crochet 2 together, and front post double crochet 3 together.
The crochet instructions are written for one size but post stitches and cabling allow lots of room for stretch.
