Hand Sanitiser Cozies

With the world returning to a state of “normalcy” after COVID-19 there are certain changes that will be sticking around. For example the consistent use of hand sanitiser on pubic transport has become essential for commuters, especially those in the high risk categories like myself. Easy access to hand sanitiser without digging through (and potentially contaminating!) my bag is important. To solve this I have developed this easy clip on hand sanitiser pouch. The pattern has just been released on my Ravelry page and you can buy an add free pattern for the frog version here. To celebrate the release I am sharing the base of the pattern for free on my blog. The add free pattern is included in the Frog Hand Sanitiser Cozie For just $2.5! It also includes an ad-free PDF of each pattern and tailoring instructions.

Frog Hand Sanitiser Cozie

After finishing the frog cozie, I started to experiment with different stitches and patterns. So in this updated post I have added three patterns. Now there is a plain cozie, striped cozie, mesh cozie, pineapple stitch cozie and Celtic Stitch cozie. These are available in a patter book on my ravelry account.

The Cozies: Pineapple, Mesh, Frog (Plain), Striped, Celtic Stitch (Left to Right)

What you will need

  • 20-25m 8 ply cotton for a plain cozie. I used Lincraft 8 Ply cotton.
  • 35-40 m 4 ply cotton for pineapple, mesh and striped cozie. I used Mondal Cotton Soft Bio and tootgarook by Bella Baby.
  • 30-35m 8 ply cotton for Celtic stitch. I used Lincraft 8 Ply cotton.
  • 3.5mm hook or 2.5mm hook.
  • Carribena or split ring
  • Dettol 50ml hand sanitizer or similar bottle. Bottle measurements are given below to assist with scaling

These patterns are written in US terminology. You will need to be familiar with chains (CH), single crochet (SC), double crochet (DC), Treble Crochet (TC) and slip stitch (SL). You also want to be familiar with Cetic stitch.

We are going to start off with the easy patterns and work to the most difficult patterns. More of a photo tutorial is given on pattern book the PDF on my Ravelry page.

The Plain Pattern

Starting off with something easy. To scale reduce the number of rows in the cozie. A purell bottle may only need 14 rows.
This pattern needs 25-30m 8 Ply cotton (I used Lincraft 8 Ply Cotton) and a 3.5mm hook.

  • Foundation: CH14, SL into first chain, CH1.
  • R1: SC20 into the foundation ring, SL into first SC, CH1.[20]
  • R2: SC9, 2SC into the next stitch, SC9, 2SC into last stitch, SL into the first SC, CH1. [22]
  • R3-17: SC around, SL into first SC.
  • R18: Top loop, CH11, SL into the 11th stitch of R17. Fasten off and weave in end.

This pattern can be embellished with any applique. Golden Lucy Crafts has a range of free patterns for you to look at. Remember to share pictures of the the finished product in the frog version that could be yours!

The next two patterns need a 3.5mm hook and a fingering weight 4ply cotton. I used Mondal Cotton Soft Bio.

Celtic Stitch Cozie

The celtic stitch cozie needs 35-40m of 8 ply cotton. I used Lincraft Cotton 8 Ply. You need to be familiar with cetic stitch or working FPTC and BPTC stitches for this pattern. A great place to learn Celtic stitch is crochet it creations. They have done a lovley tutorial step by step photo tutorial. The ad-free PDF on Ravelry has some photos to guide, but not a full tutorial. This pattern varies from the swatch form of celtic stitch to let it be worked in a round.

  • Foundation: CH14, SL into first chain, CH1.
  • R1: SC24 into the foundation ring, SL into first SC, CH1.[24]
  • R2: CH2, DC around. [24 DC]
  • R3: CH3, SK 2, FPTC in next two stitches, FPTC around both skipped stitches this stitch will be on top of the first FPTC , working from the first skipped to second skipped stitch. It will form a small X. *SK2, FPTC in next two stitches, FPTC around both skipped stitches* Repeat from * to * around. SL into the CH3.
  • R4: CH3 and Turn. you will work this row on the wrong side. The start of this row is a little messy. You will work with the first two stitches of the previous row and the last two stitches of the previous row. Beginning with the first two stitches of R3 BPTC around each. Working on the back side of the work (RS) BPTC around the last two stitches of round 3. <-This is the tricky part. *SK2, BPTC around next stitches, going behind the work BPTC around the skipped stitches* Repeat around frm * to *. SL into the CH3.
  • R5: CH3 and Turn. You will work with the first two stitches of the previous row and the last two stitches of the previous row. Beginning with the last two stitches of R4, FPTC, crossing back over in front of the previous two stitches FPTC around the two skipped stitches. *SK 2, FPTC, crossing back over in front of the previous two stitches FPTC around the two skipped stitches. * Repeat from * to * around. SL into the CH3. 
  • R6-11:Repeat R4 and R5.
