Making Stuff: Baby Bottle Crocheted Cozies

by This is Carrie on November 10, 2010

When I happened across these beautiful crochet covered bottles created by Lock & Spoon, I immediately realized how naked our baby bottles looked and went on a mission to figure out how to make my own bottle cozies.

Since I’m pretty good at following crochet patterns, but not so great at creating my own, I contacted a fellow crocheter and friend to ask for some guidance. For the crocheters out there, here was her advice which worked out perfectly.

1. Make a flat circle of single crochet slightly smaller than the bottom of the bottle.

2. To go up the sides of the bottle, start with a row of single crochet through the back loops of the flat circle.

3. Do a couple single crochet rows through both loops of the stitches of the prior row then start a design.

The design patterns came from Linda Permann’s book, Crochet Adorned and Good Housekeeping’s Illustrated Book of Needlecrafts, which I adapted as best I could to fit around the bottles. To finish off, I ended with a few rows of single crochet, taking out a few stitches to match the curve of the bottle.

Yarn: Lily Sugar ‘n Cream 100% cotton in Hot Blue, Green Twists, Country Stripes, & Sage Green

Hook: H/8 5mm

I did make the blanket when I was expecting #3 a few years ago. I was sure I blogged about it, but can’t find the post. I need to take a few more pictures and tell you all about it. One of my favorite baby projects.

These are adorable! Too bad I use liners… Maybe next time. And when someone asks what kind of bottles to register for, I will definitely change my tune, AND THEN make these for them as a gift!!

This makes me wish I knew how to crochet. And that I knew someone with a baby. . .

These are adorable, and the colors are so calming! Do you mind me asking what brand of bottles these are? The look to have a great shape (expecting #2).
Love these great work

These are great! SUCH a good idea! Do they fit most wider bottles? Seem like they’d be easy to adjust if you have the bottom measurement
