Klean Kanteen Kozy
If you have a Klean Kanteen, you know that they are awesome 🙂 but also that they are a little chilly when filled with cold beverages, and drop-it-on-the-floor hot when filled with hot beverages. Here’s a cozy to help you hang on to your Kanteen. Instructions are for 27 oz size, but pattern is easily modified.
Yarn: Lily Stripes in “Tie Dye” Colorway Hook: H
Round 1: Start with an adjustable loop. Place 5 sc into loop and tighten.Round 2: Two sc into every sc. (10 sc)Round 3: [Two sc in next sc, one sc in following sc] around. (15 sc)Round 4: [Two sc in next sc, one sc in each of next two sc] around. (20 sc)
Round 5: [Two sc in next sc, one sc in each of next three sc] around. (25 sc)
Round 6: [Two sc in next sc, one sc in each of next four sc] around. (30 sc)
Round 7: [Two sc in next sc, one sc in each of next five sc] around. (35 sc)
Place your circle against the bottom of your Kanteen. It should just fit up to (and not extend over) the edge. If you have a different size Kanteen, add or delete rows as needed.
Rds 8 & 9: One sc in each sc around. (35 sc)
Start pattern stitch: V-stitch.
Rd 10: Skip first two sc, [v-st (dc, ch 1, dc) in next stitch, skip next two chains] around, ending with a sl st in first dc. (Note that you are now joining rows rather than working in spirals)
Rd 11-19: Ch 3 in first stitch, then v-st in each v-st around (stitch is put in ch-1 space). Sl st into ch-3.
Put optional treble v-stitch row here. I put this in for visual interest, and also just to lighten the cozy. The whole cozy can’t be made with the tr v-stitch because it would be too loose and floppy. A tr v-st row or two (space them out if you do two) should be fine.
Rd 20: Ch 4, treble v-stitch into each regular v-stitch around. Sl st into ch-4 to close.
Rds 21-23: Ch 3 in first stitch, then v-st in each v-st around (stitch is put in ch-1 space). Sl st into ch-3.
Put the cozy on the Kanteen to make sure it is a good fit, and tall enough.
Last round: Ch 1, sc into each stitch around. (35 st)
FO and weave in ends.
