thinking about using this pattern to make a water bottle cozy! I like the stitch pattern

A great idea, especially since I've gone back to using tea tree oil soap instead of bodywash. I like the look of the V stitch and am going to give it a try. Thanks for posting this - for FREE!<3

I have been studying your blog posts during my break, and I need to admit your complete article has been very useful and very well composed.

I'm a bit confused as to why Rounds 11 & 12 instructions state to repeat round 7, yet rounds 6-9 instructions are to repeat round 5. So I'm wondering if it is a typo or if I should just be repeating round 5 for rounds 11 & 12? The instructions are a bit awkward thus somewhat confusing. Being a woman of simplicity & logic...this was like a trick question. LOL. I thought, "Wait a minute this a test to see if I'm paying attention?" :-)

I like your pattern and appreciated your video. I would recommend you use plan yarn for your examples rather than variegated, as it is much easier to see the stitches with plain yarn than it is with the variegated yarn. Other than that, great job!!

I enjoy this pattern and am using it as a charity project. I am using a 6.00mm hook because I stitch a little tight. :) thank you so much for the video tutorial. :)
