Water Bottle Cozies

I think the next iteration of this design idea is going to be a critter. That might be cool. I'm going to have to contemplate how I'll make that work. Until then, the previous iterations of the idea...



(These are in my shop, actually. And the patterns are also available (the mesh one and the scaly one). In case you were wondering...)

Today's A to Z Challenge post brought to you by the letter...


What critter should I try? Do you carry a water bottle around with you?

  1. Cute idea! I would love a giraffe or a monkey or a kitty for my daughter. She loves animals:)

    1. Oooh, a monkey with long arms as the strap? That has some promise...

  2. I like the scaly one - I would love a rainbow coloured one, or a super cooper girly one with big peony style flowers and maybe some glitter or sequins.

    1. I could take the rose embellishment and make a bunch. Floral out the thing. I like.

  3. I'd love to see what you come up with for a new design. Are you going to use an aquatic animal or something cute (or both)?

  5. These are really neat! I'm impressed! How long have you been knitting? What is your favorite thing to knit?

  6. Cute. Someone gave my daughter a crocheted holder for a ball jar -- I guess like a little lantern to hang in a tree or somewhere.

  7. So cute! Do those get wet from the bottle's condensation?

    1. I know the bottles do develop condensation, but I don't feel the cozies get soggy. The yarn seems to absorb it.

  8. A polar bear for the critter; cute!!! No I don't carry a water bottle, except when we go grocery shopping.

    Have a great Sunday!

  9. Another nifty idea. I only carry water when I'm exercising, or riding public transport for long distances, or driving fro long distances...or for medium distances...:)

  10. Interesting read. Visiting from A-Z Challenge; returning your visit to my blog at GenWestUK

    (BTW, the webinars I spoke about are 2.0-3.30 Eastern; that was the 'North Amercian afternoon' I mentioned.)

  11. I love this idea Liz, not something I have seen on any of the crochet sites I like to visit... the animal idea (especially the monkey with arms as straps is a winner in my eyes) Great for kids.

  13. Wonderful patterns. I use an expanding water container when I'm running errands. It hooks on to my purse and can be rolled up when empty.

    1. Oooh, I've never seen one of those. That would be cool!

  14. What a great idea! This is great when one is walking and doesn't want to hang on to the water bottle. Looked at some of your other writings-Love about the cell phones!

  15. I LOVE the orange one. I've usually got a water bottle with me, but never the permanent kind. My youngest quailed all attempts at permanent-bottle-usage when he demolished the second one. =)

  16. I don't carry water with me but I know I should. Trouble is as a teacher stuck in a classroom you can't keep popping off to the ladies. You are creatively talented in more ways than one I see!

  17. Cool cozies! In fact all the things you have on your Ravelry page are neat designs! A cozie out of a turtle would be fun :)
