How are you doing on this lovely Saturday? Well, it’s Saturday here when I’m at but it might not be where you are. Either way, I hope which ever day it is where you are is delightful. Here I’m hoping to accomplish some much needed house work and get some patterns finished up as well as work on a new “secret” pattern that I’m not sure about still. Don’t you hate that? When you’re working on a pattern and you’re not entirely sure you like how it’s working up but you want to continue working on it? Because you won’t know if you’re happy about it or not until it’s done. That’s where I am at with this pattern I have floating around in my head.

I digress… I actually wrote this pattern up last week and had it all ready to go, but I didn’t have the pictures done. Sometimes the taking and editing of pictures takes me forever to get around to. Not because it takes so long, but because I won’t sit down and get to it. Also, the posting. I’m not consistent with the posting. I’m more content to sit and work up a pattern while watching Grey’s Anatomy reruns, all the other stuff is hard. Ok, not hard, but not as fun. :p
As the title says I’m expanding the Willow line some more, with a bottle cozy.  I was inspired by other designers posting adorable pictures of their bottle cozies and I genuinely said, “I want to make one.” So I did. And you can too, it’s very easy.

Materials:
*US G (4.25mm) crochet hook
* 1 – 2 oz worsted weight yarn

* Tapestry needle

Gauge: 
4.5″ x 4.5″= 19 dcs x 9 rows

Terms/stitches used:
*St: stitch
*Slip st: slip stitch
*Ch: chain
*Sc: single crochet
*Spike sc: spike single crochet
*Hdc: half double crochet
*Spike hdc: spike half double crochet

Note:
*If you would like to make this pattern taller, just keep adding rows before you get to the handles.
*You will need to know how to sc into the back loop only for this pattern.
*This pattern is written using 3 colors, listed below as colors A, B, and C. You can add more or fewer colors to this pattern if you would like.
*Instead of fastening off between color changes, you can just drop the yarn for the color you’re not longer using and pick it back up again when it comes time to use it. This will cut down on the amount of ends you will have to weave in, but the inside might not be as clean as some people would like. It’s your decision on this, I like to drop the yarn and pick it back up because I hate weaving in ends (unless it’s a gift and then I’ll clean it up).
*This pattern is worked from the bottom up. You complete the base and then move on to the cylindrical sides and then finish with the handles, all in one piece. This is done row by row with a slip st at the end of each row.

Finished product dimensions:
*Height: 13.5”
*Diameter: 5.25” – 5.5”

So, that’s all for me this post. I’m hoping sometime this week we’ll get the blog transferred over to www.divinedebris.com and I’ll get a mailing list set up so that those of you who are interested can keep up to date on what I’m doing and what patterns I’m releasing. I hope you like this pattern and don’t forget to share your finished pictures on Ravelry, my FB page or Instagram (use the hashtag #DivineDebris). I’ll share the photos I come across!

    Lovely pattern! I love the stripes! I think I found an error in the pattern. On row 5, it should read, ” *sc twice in the next st, sc once in the next THREE sts* ” to get 30 stitches in that round, correct?

      Yep. I got ahead of myself and forgot to write the “3” in there, it just said “sts.” Ha! Sorry about that.

    Hi Amber! Love this pattern and looking forward to starting it, but had a quick question: I suspect the answer will be no, but do you think this pattern will be as stiff with a softer yarn? I love the look of the stiffer bag, but am wondering if I can get away with using up some Caron Simply Soft in my stash for it. Thanks!

      Honestly, that’s hard to say. The overlap of the sc/ spike sc combo in the Willow line makes it stiffer overall, so CSS might work out to be stiff. I’d give it a try, at the absolute worst, it’s more flexible than my bag here and that’s not a bad thing. 🙂 You just might need to add a liner.

        Good thinking! I’ll give it a go and let you know how it turns out 🙂

    Love this pattern. I modified the handle a tiny bit! So much fun and I learned how to drop colors😀😀

    Should row 11 be single crochets around.

      No. I did the two rows of opposite spike stitches to create a texture effect that is deliberate. If you would like to replace the second row of spike sc/ sc with just a sc row, you can and others have, it’s just up to you.

    Any idea what I might be doing wrong? I end up with 48 stitches instead of 42. I’ve restarted a few time already.

      I really can’t say without seeing your project but I would check your stitch counts for each row and compare them against the counts I have at the end of the rows. It sounds like you might be increasing too many times or you’re increasing on row 8 when you shouldn’t be.
      I hope that helps.
