Crochet a baby bottle cosy
Before you begin, you'll want to make a simple chart spelling the babies name and year of birth. Grab some graph paper and a pen and plot it out - it should be a grid of roughly 22 x 33.
Rows 1-10: Knit in garter stitch.
When you finish stitching the chart, measure your bottle warmer against the bottle to check the fit. Stitch a few more rows in garter stitch if it's too small.
Using a crochet hook, add a scalloped edge to the top and bottom of the bottle.
Row 1: Crochet one row. Chain 1.
Row 2: Miss 1 stitch, 5 dc in next stitch, miss 1 stitch, sc in next stitch and repeat to the end of row.
Use a yarn needle to sew the bottle warmer snuggly around the bottle holder.
Weave in all the loose tails and you're all done.
Give it to a baby!
