my take on cozying things that really don't need it:
really, it was all about using up the crochet cotton i love and always buy but never use.  this is a great place for it! (also it makes up for the fact that i dont have a sporty backpack to attach my water bottle on to. i've given up trying to look like i camp, rugged boys be damned)

Great idea!!  I love my Nalgene, but hate to try to figure out how to carry it around with me.

Oh man! If you had gone to my college you could'a sold tons and tons of those!!!! (Env. Sci. dept)
people always hold em by that plastic loop....and you can always tell who has had theirs longer b/c that loop always breaks from heavy use. Grin
this would be awesome for camping/hiking    ~M
P.S....I know what ya mean about the cotton that ya never use....Ive been trying to use up mine for like 2 years now.

Very nice!  I once crocheted a hemp cozy for an inhaler, but it wasn't so pretty as this one. I really like the strap on yours.   Don't want it keeping the rugged boys away though!  I bet they like diy girls.

OOOHH! Thats awsome!! Smiley I never even thought of that, and I agree with Laamissa, you would have been rich if you sold these at my university, Nalgene bottles are like the defining factor for Biology and Environmental Science students!
Could you please post a bit of a tut on how you made it, im still a beginner and would love to try that if you would give me some hints Wink
I LOVE IT!!!!!

I agree with Peace, we need a tutorial, or a pattern if you're willing to share Wink.

My Nalgene is carried geologist style, with a carabiner thru the loop; usually attached to my pants.
This may be a tad more practical, especailly for hikes. It gets a little uncomfortable with a HEAVY plastic tail smacking you in the butt all the time.
I think I've just been inspired to make a knit version....

Yeah, it's not so comfortable, and not very ideal for everyday use in my case, as it pulls my pants down

What a fantastic idea!   You inspired me to make a cozy for my own nalgene; I used light blue yarn and played with different stitches for some variety.  I also added a ring of elastic under the top round to keep the cozy, nice and, well, cozy around the top of the bottle.  Anyway, thanks for the great idea!

damn me for losing my nalgene bottle almost the first day i had it and damn me for getting the cheap, weirdly shaped walmart fakey! it will be really hard to make a cozy and there will have to be decreases and increases, but now i'm going to try.

Hey guys,
Thanks for all the awesome feedback!  Sorry I never posted a tute or pattern, but I was hoping to get it published, simple tho it is. 
I should know in a couple weeks and if it doesnt make it then I'll post the pattern at my new site http://pomoboho.blogspot. (and post it here too!) xoxo
ps heading back east soon, going to try and flog these to lonely available enviro boys at dal and maybe in pride colours at the halifax parade this summer.

I think I can forgive you for no pattern if you send one of those enviro boys my way!

Good luck publishing and selling.

haha!  Yay enviro-boys!
I have made a cozy for a glass jar, because I read somewhere that the plastic they use in Nalgene bottles was not meant for people to drink out of.
Also, glass jars can hold hot things, hence the need for a cozy.
Too cute!

Same with mine, but I attach it to the bottom part of my backpack strap.  It gets annoying having this large plastic bottle whacking you in the side every step.  This is the perfect solution!

I've been going crazy over the fact that I'm constantly dehydrated and I can't fit my bottle in my backpack. Inspiration, yeah!

I love the colors as well.

OK, so I finally got around to taking a pic of the one I made...



huge I know, but at least you can see the stitch detailing well Smiley  and yes, I switched stitch pattern midway up, and have considered making another one but not sure how i want it to look overall, so I haven't.

Love your nalgene cozy, and while it wouldn't work for me, I am now anxious to see what else might benefit from a little cozying up. And what a fun way to use up all those little bits and pieces.

Thanks for sharing this great, fun and well designed idea.
