Once considered old fashioned, hot water bottles have become a new trend, and stylish cozies for hot water bottles are popping up everywhere!

This knit-look cozy crochets up quickly, and the main body is a 4 row repeat that is easy to memorize. The cozy is designed to slip easily over your bottle and features a button-up closure on the back side.

This crochet pattern calls for 1¾ skeins of Cascade Yarns® 220 100 g (3.53 oz)/201 meters (220 yds) per skein, which is a worsted weight (4). The pattern features the blue (Summer Sky - 7815) cozy and you should be comfortable with the following stitches and techniques: adjustable ring, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, front post double crochet, back post double crochet, front post treble crochet, half double crochet 2 together, front post double crochet 2 together, and front post double crochet 3 together.

The crochet instructions are written for one size only, but post stitches and cabling allow lots of room for stretch. The finished hot water bottle cozy measures approximately 19 cm (7.5”) wide and 35.5 cm (14”) at it’s highest point.
