Sock Monkey Water Bottle Cozy Crochet Pattern

I thought, with the nice Spring Weather and everyone headed to the Dog parks,
 That a water bottle Cozy was needed..

And what better Character to use then
the "Sock Monkey"! 

See This Video on my Youtube Channel at this Link

I  designed this pattern for a Sock Monkey cozy and
 I think it's really easy to make and really cute and so 
much fun to carry!
Fits a 20 oz. soda just fine as well.

Oh thank you so much for the pattern - it is so cute - I make lots of water bottle and cup cozies and this has never even crossed my mine - I will be making up lots of these for my childrens classmates (since they bring bottles of water to school so they dont have to leave the classrooms to go to the water fountains)
they are going to love love love them!! ;-)

What yarn did you use? I've been searching for sock monkey yarn.

Sara said...

I use Vannas Choice, Taupe mist yarn. There is also a Jiffy yarn that is similiar, but I think its scratchy.
