project #2 - bubble frenzy beer cozy

coaster & cozy

pattern used -
yarn used -
  • assorted recycled cottons
  • approximately 8 ply/DK weight
  • used three different colours
hook used -
  • 4.0mm hook
thoughts -
  • I'm not really a fan of the whole beer cozy concept... Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I don't actually drink beer! beer cozy - close up
  • now that I have made it... I've decided that I quite like it... and it will fit perfectly over a bottle of Smirnoff Ice... Mmmmm.... VODKA beer cozy
  • I followed the pattern, but added a third colour. So I still made the colour changes in all the same places as the pattern called for, but I alternated through three colours instead of two. It seems to give the pattern a completely different look.
  • totally off-topic, but is it possible to alternate between three things... or does the term ALTERNATE technically imply that there are only two possibilities??? coaster
  • I also made the accompanying coaster from Lisa's pattern, and added a final trim in sc using size 20 crochet thread and a 1.25mm hook coaster - close up
  • the coaster will live on my desk here... the perfect spot for my coffee cupcoaster in use

Would a water bottle fit into the cozy? With a bit of a handle to hook on wrist or belt it would be a very attractive way to carry the water we always seem to have with us now.

I like it. It kind of makes the beer bottle look whimsical, like a genie may come out of it.

The only thing that gets me about a beer cozy is that I would prefer my beer near-frozen and not warm and cozy. Huh. :) Still, looks FAB!

wild woman - ohhhhh.. you are so right about that... I love your vision and imagination... I'll be looking for that genie now

jessica - too true :)
