~ TMNT bottle cozy ~

I came upon this pattern one day while checking out Crochet Pattern Central - it's a cute coffee cup cozy.  My grandsons like the TMNT's (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) so I thought of them when I first saw it.  The only thing, of course, is that they don't drink coffee - so I crocheted a bottle cozy.  This is the purple one - I think it's Leonardo - he's for James.  I am almost finished with the orange one - Michaelangelo - he's for William.  :)


Materials:
- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic
  - green
  - mask color
- J hook
- pair of 1" wiggle eyes

Size:  fits 16.9 oz. bottle

Notes:
- I crochet tight so you may want to adjust the size of your crochet hook
- The ch 2 at the beginning of the dc rnds does not count as a stitch

Directions:

Rnd 1:  With green, ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook.  Join with a sl st to 1st dc.  (12 dc)

Rnd 2:  Ch 2, 2 dc in each dc around.  Join as before.  (24 dc)

Rnd 3:  Ch 1, 2 sc in same st as joining, sc in next 5 dc.  (2 sc in next dc, sc in next 5 dc) 3 more times.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc.  (28 sc)  

Rnd 4:  Working this rnd only in back loops, ch 1, sc in each sc around.  Join as before.  

Rnd 5:  Ch 2, dc in each sc around.  Join with a sl st to 1st dc.

Rnd 6:  Ch 1, sc in each dc around.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc.

Rnds 7 - 10:  Repeat Rnds 5 - 6.

Rnd 11:  Repeat Rnd 5.  End off.

Rnd 12:  Join mask color with a sl st to 1st dc.  Ch 1, sc in each dc around.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc.

Rnd 17:  Join green with a sl st to 1st sc.  Ch 2, dc in each sc around.  Join with a sl st to 1st dc.

Rnd 18:  Repeat Rnd 6.  End off.
