This is a can and bottle cozy, crochet knit look. This is another easy pattern and finishes quick. Nothing too fancy, but a great project for beginners, and people who want to learn new stitches, like the HDC (Half Double Crochet in the Third Loop). It’s a simple project, but don’t look simple. When its done its very flexible and stretchy, making it fit almost anything. Fits bottles and cans. This design I started in 2016, and it sold very well in my local area, and I want to share it with you. You can make it for yourself, your loved ones, or make it to sell.
For the Third Loop, new stitch, you can see the video below the pattern.

Instruction can and bottle cozy:
Begin with magic circle.
Round 1: CH2, 12DC into magic ring, SLST (12 stitches)
Round 2: CH2, 2DC in the same stitch as SLST, * 2DC in next stitch * – repeat (24 stitches)
Round 3: CH1, work a HDC through the back loop only in each stitch all around, SLST (24 stitches)

Fasten off and weave in ends.
How to Crochet into the Third Loop of the Half Double Crochet:
Yarn over, insert hook into the third loop only of HDC (The V on the top of each stitch), yarn over again. You should have three loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through all three loops, completing your third post only HDC.
