Okay, I know this looks like a beer bottle. It's not. It's a bottle of steak sauce. What can I say? My daughter hasn't been a baby for over two decades... I had no baby bottles in the house!

This design has a very simple slip-stitch pattern to keep it visually interesting.

on pair 5 mm (US 8) needles
Worsted weight yarn in two contrasting colours

With colour A, cast on 6 stitches
Row 1: knit
Row 2: (k1, p1) in each stitch across (12 stitches)
Row 3: *k1, [k1, p1 in next stitch]. Repeat from * to end. (18 st)
Row 4: purl
Row 5: *k2, [k1, p1 in next stitch]. Repeat from * to end. (24 st)
Row 6: purl
Row 7: *k1, [k1, p1 in next stitch]. Repeat from * to end. (36 st)
Row 8: (WS facing) knit. (This will form a ridge on the right side.)
Row: 9: knit
Row 10: purl

Join colour B, and proceed in the following slip stitch pattern.

Row 1: With B, *sl 1, k1, sl 1, k3. Repeat from * to end
Row 2: With B, purl
Row 3: With A, *k3, sl 1, k1, sl 1. Repeat from * to end.
Row 4: With A, purl

Repeat these four rows until piece measures 5" from the beginning of the slip stitch pattern.

Next row: with A, k1, *yo, k2tog. Repeat from * to last stitch, k1
Next 2 rows: purl
Last row: knit

Cast off knitwise. Thread ribbon or cord through eyelets. Slip over baby bottle and tighten ties around the neck of the bottle. Pretty and practical.
