Soda Can Cozy....Free Pattern

Soda Can Cozy
©Copyright 2007
Designed by Melanie Thompson

US Size 7 Double Point Needles
100 % Cotton Yarn

Cast on 40 stitches
Place a marker and join…knit one round
*K2, P2 * repeat to end of round
Continue with K2, P2, for about 1 inch (not critical…personal preference)
When you have desired amount of ribbing….knit every round
Continue knitting every round until piece measures about 3 ½ to 3 ¾ inches from cast on edge
Then begin to decrease for the bottom

Round 1: Purl
Round 2: *K8, K2tog* repeat to end (36 stitches)
Round 3: Purl
Round 4: *K7, K2tog* repeat to end (32 stitches)
Round 5: Purl
Round 6: *K6, K2tog* repeat to end (28 stitches)
Round 7: Purl
Round 8: *K5, K2tog* repeat to end (24 stitches)
Round 9: Purl

Round 11: Purl
Round 12: *K3, K2tog* repeat to end (16 stitches)
Round 13: Purl
Round 14: *K2, K2tog* repeat to end (12 stitches)
Round 15: Purl
Round 16: *K1, K2tog* repeat to end (8 stitches)
Round 17: Purl
Cut yarn leaving tail about 4-5 inches long
Pull the tail through the remaining stitches and tug tightly
Secure the tail and weave in the ends

The bottom will have a cone shape…not to worry…this forms to the

shape of the bottom of your soda can You could choose to do

the K2, P2 ribbing the full length of the cozy until

the decreases begin to change it up a bit. Or you could add random

purl rows through out the length of the sides just to vary the

design…have fun and experiment!
Just wanted to add that when these get dirty, just toss them in the wash with towels and they're good to go for more use.

I love this pattern; it's one of the only cozy patterns that actually has a bottom to it. Thank you so much for posting it!
