Thermic Bottle Cozy

Posted by Meg This little knitted cozy helps to extend the shelf life of the thermic bottles ... and helps you use your extra bits of yarn! Materials: Left over yarn, preferably natural fiber 4 double-pointed knitting needles, small (I used US size 3) Blunt-tipped needle for weaving in edges Cast on 30 stitches using a long-tail cast-on. Divide evenly among 3 needles. Join for knitting in the round, being careful not to twist the stitches. Knit in stockinette stitch until the cozy measures about 3 inches or desired length to fit the bottle. Bind off and weave in tails. I flipped mine "inside-out" so that more of the multi-colored poofs were visible. For instructions on how to knit using double-pointed needles, I recommend this tutorial by

Show the children how to remove the cozy from the bottle like so, touching the cap only and not the metal sides:Provide a basket where the cozies can be placed while the child is working with the material.
