Water bottle Kozie pattern

This is one of the items that I have been making since I started to crochet.  It is also one of the first items that I made without a pattern.  Our Kozies get a lot of use in the Spring and Summer months.
There are TONS of ways you can change the Kozies up.  With Spring right around the corner, you could crochet a few of my 3-layer flowers!  That would be really cute!  The free pattern for the flower can be found here
I will post some additional Kozie ideas in a later post.  :)

 You may not copy, change, or sell my patterns in part or in whole.  You may sell your finished product, but I ask that you give credit for the pattern by linking back to me.

What you will need:
 H hook
Worsted weight yarn
Scissors
Yarn needle

Abbreviations:
ch-chain
st/st's- stitch/stitches
dc-double crochet
sl st- slip stitch

Body
Chain 3
Round 1:  10 dc in 3rd chain from hook, sl st into first dc.  (10dc)
Round 2: Ch 2, 2 dc in each st round, sl st into first dc.  (20dc)
Round 3:  Ch 2, 1 dc in each st round., sl st into first dc. (20dc)
Rounds 4-12: Repeat round 3
Do not fasten off!

Strap
After you have completed your last round
Row 1: Chain 3 (counts as first st) 1 dc in next 4 dc’s
(5dc).  Chain 3 and turn.
Row 2: dc in next 4 dc making sure to dc into the chain 3 from previous round.  (5dc)  Chain 3 and turn.
Row 3-70 (or until strap is length desired): Repeat row 2.
Once you have your strap to the length you are wanting join the strap to the opposite side of the body using sl st on the INSIDE of the body, so your join won’t show.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
This is the water bottle Kozie pattern that I used to make my Valentine's day Kozie.  :)

  2. This is an awesome idea! I'm halfway through making the strap on mine. I always forget to bring my water to work, so this will be very helpful! I'm also going to make an orange one with a felt monkey cutout hot glued to it for my aunt's birthday. Those are her things: monkeys and the color orange. lol
