Share the Love

Let's share some love today!

I want to start by saying, Furls Wander Yarn is AMAZING! It is so soft and perfect for this project.

On this special day of love and kindness I am so happy to share with you a pattern that is so simple and quick to whip up. So let's jump right in.

What you will need

Yarn #3 DK, I used Furls Wander Acrylic
1 skein velvet
1 skein snow
1 Aries # 4.5 hook; 182/ 166m; 50% Superwash Merino and 50% Nylon.

Hook(s): 1 Aries # 4.5 hook

Let's talk fiber!

If you need to substitute with an other yarn and are not sure what to look for here are some tips...

What you will look for between labels

Is the weight the same?

Are the fibers similar, such as Acrylic, wool, alpaca, nylon, etc.?

Is the gauge similar or close enough to make it work?

Are the recommended hook sizes the same?

Another piece of information you can look for is the number of wpi (wraps per inch). This information is not always available so me be more difficult to compare.

Do you know these stitches and abbreviations?

Magic Circle

Ch- chain

Slst-slip stitch

hdc- half double crochet

hdcflo- half double crochet front loop only

hdcblo- half double crochet back loop only

Reverse single crochet

Things you should know before starting

  • The number before the abbreviation represents how many times to work the same stitch into the next stitch. Ex: 2 sc = work two single crochet into the next stitch.
  • The number after the abbreviation represents how many times to work one type of stitch into consecutive stitches from the previous round. Ex: sc 2 = work one single crochet into each of the next two stitches.
  • Numbers within < > represent the total number of stitches per row.

Ok on to the pattern:

Let's begin with the cup cozy's

Begin with a magic circle

Work 12 hdc in to the magic circle. Do not slst to beginning, continue the next stitch into the first hdc of the first round.

In the first hdc work one hdc in the back loop then one hdc in the front loop of the same stitch. Continue working one hdc in the back loop and one hdc into the front loop of each stitch around.

Round 3- *work one hdc into the back loop of the first hdc; in the next stitch work on hdc in the front loop then one hdc in the back loop of the same stitch.* Repeat from * to * around. You can see now the sequence of stitches.

Round 4- work one hdc into the front or back loop (whichever is next in the sequence) in the next stitch, work on hdc in the front or back loop of the next stitch. Increase by working one hdc in each loop of the next stitch.

Round 5- hdcblo and hdcflo in next 3 stitches. Increase by working a hdc in each loop of the next stitch.

Round 6- hdcblo and hdcflo in next 4 stitches. Increase by working a hdc in each loop fo the next stitch.

Rounds 7-11 continue working the hdcblo and hdcflo in continuous rounds.

Round 12- hdcblo and hdcflo in the next 3 sts; to decrease begin the next stitch yarn over, pull through 2 loops, with 2 loops on your hook begin the next stitch, yarn over pull through all loops. You have two hdc stitches worked together. Continue repeating with sequence around.

Compare the opening of your cozy with the widest part of your cup. If the cozy needs to stretch a little to fit in to the cozy thats great! If the cozy is too tight to fit over the cup, frog the decrease round and work 4 stitches between each decrease instead of 3. If the cozy is too loose then work another round of decreases and test the fit again. Since cups vary in sizes due to manufacturer it is difficult to give an absolute number here.

When you are happy with the fit of the cozy, repeat round 7 until you reach the height you want.

Now let's make the bottle cozy.

Begin with a magic circle

Work 12 hdc in to the magic circle. Do not slst to beginning, continue the next stitch into the first hdc of the first round.

In the first hdc work one hdc in the back loop then one hdc in the front loop of the same stitch. Continue working one hdc in the back loop and one hdc into the front loop of each stitch around.

Round 3- *work one hdc into the back loop of the first hdc; in the next stitch work on hdc in the front loop then one hdc in the back loop of the same stitch.* Repeat from * to * around. You can see now the sequence of stitches.

Round 4- work one hdc into the front or back loop (whichever is next in the sequence) in the next stitch, work on hdc in the front or back loop of the next stitch. Increase by working one hdc in each loop of the next stitch.

Round 5- hdcblo and hdcflo in next 3 stitches. Increase by working a hdc in each loop of the next stitch.

Round 6- hdcblo and hdcflo in next 4 stitches. Increase by working a hdc in each loop ofthe next stitch.

Continue working the hdcblo and hdcflo in continuous rounds until the bottle cozy is long enough to cover the bottle neck and just a little above. To finish off the bottle cozy edge work a reverse single crochet around the top of the last round.

Finishing

I chose to surface crochet His and Hers on to the cup cozy. Feel free to add any embellishments to yours and make them personal.

To make the tie for the top of the bottle cozy chain 30; sl st in each back bump (or 3rd loop) across the chain. Tie around the top of the bottle.
