Crocheted can and bottle koozies

In college a friend suggested I crochet a beer koozy. I thought the idea was so silly because it was such an oxymoron, so I had to try it. I can't believe how many people have asked me where to get them when I use one. So, I decided it was time to put some in my Etsy shop. These 4 are all posted there. I plan to continue to post more there regularly. I have a few more multi-colored yarns and a bunch of solids that I am planning to use. I have done some custom designs in the past (Dean's Beer embroidery) and have some ideas for more customization for the future. I'll be posting about those once I try it out.
Last night, my husband suggested a bottle koozy. Here is my prototype. It is listed in my Etsy shop as well. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I just hope I can re-create it! The bottom is open so it slips over the top of the bottle. I haven't tried it out, so I am hoping there isn't a problem with the bottle slipping out the bottom.

Matching can and bottle koozies!
