Simple hand warmer
I noticed my hand was getting cold while I knitted so I took a break from the sweater I'm working on to make this wool beer cozy.

Sorry, no pattern. I just did it. About all I remember is a beer bottle is about 8" around and I knit the length with negative ease before decreasing.

That works.
But I started like crocheting granny squares with a lot of increases. My bottom is flat (well, mine not so much after drinking these beers trying it out, although the cooler's bottom is still flat).
That's mainly the part I can't say how I did it. I crochet cozies to fit things without taking notes, this time I did it with needles instead of a hook.

I kept saying, "I'm knitting a sweater for my beer."
"Why do you want a sweater for your beer?"
"Because it's cold. Duhhh!"
When I got it done I put it on my beer and set it on the table in front of my roommate. "You need help."

Good idea. I think I have a pattern for something like that in a book somewhere. I might need to make some for my DB for his birthday. Thanks for the inspiration.

That was my intention. Although I was thinking more along the lines of quick and easy for Christmas.
