Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 48 sts on double pointed needles size 8 mm with Eskimo and knit in the round in stocking sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 35 cm continue next round as follows: K8, cast off the next 8 sts, K16 and then place these sts on a stitch holder, cast off the next 8 sts, K the last 8 sts. Insert a marker – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

Continue knitting the handle over the 16 sts on the needles. Work stocking sts back and forth while AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: * dec 1 st at beg of the next 2 rows, work 2 rows without dec *, repeat from *-* until there are 8 sts left. Continue stocking sts back and forth until the handle measures 27 cm from the marker (i.e. where the handle started). Put the sts on a stitch holder.

Put the 16 sts that are on the holder on the opposite side back on needle and knit a similar handle.

Sew the handle tog at the top.
Lay the bottle holder flat. Sew opening in the bottom edge to edge, sew in front loops of sts.

Place a small plastic (sandwich) bag inside the bottle cooler – secure with a safety pin. Place the piece in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach. Wash at 40 degrees with normal spin but no pre-wash. After wash, place the bottle cooler on a bottle to shape the cooler while it is still wet.

Skjønner ikke helt hva som menes med "fest en plastpose i flaskeskjuleren".

Hej Kristin. Du skal feste en plastikpose indeni skjuleren inden du filter. Paa den maade undgaar du at den filter sammen.

Sød ide, som også kan være "gaveindpakning" af svigerfars julesnaps. Faconen bliver endnu bedre, hvis man starter med 2 masker på hver af de 4 pinde, og derefter tager ud i hjørnerne på hver 2. omgang, indtil man har de 48 masker, som man så kan strikke videre på. Det giver en fin flad bund.

Fordi ellers tover arbeidet sammen.

Lurer på hvorfor vi skal feste en blank plastpose i denne før toving?
