Nalgene Water Bottle Cozy
No yarn pr0n today, I showed that off on Wednesday and it rained yesterday so I wasn't able to get outside for any new pr0n shots. So, yarn pr0n friday will return next week. Sorry, Zib. Well, the water bottle cozy, she is finished. Needles: US 6 dpns Yarn: Cascade 220 Gauge: 5 st / 7 rows per inch Instructions: Cast on 56 stitches join, working in K2 P2 Ribbing for 9 rounds. Knit 8 rows plain, begin 19 row fair aisle pattern (from Fall/Winter 2005 Knit Scene) Knit 8 rows plain, change to K2P2 ribbing for 5 rounds, binding off in pattern. ETA - Yes, it really does keep the water colder. Plus, no sweating! Case in point - I filled my water bottle up with ice water at 7:45 this morning, it's now nearly 11am and I still have ice in the bottle, and my desk is dry! Yesterday, I had a puddle and warm water by this time.
