Pill bottles aren't always the easiest to find in your purse, and the plastic can even be a bit slippery. If you're looking for a great way to alleviate this issue, follow this Knit Pill Bottle Cozy Pattern. This free knitting pattern works up quickly on double pointed needles to form a little case for your pill bottle. If you're a fan of color-coding, you can even knit a few pill bottle cozies for different prescriptions, but PLEASE NOTE to check the label too to be sure you know which medication is in which pill bottle cozy. The handy loop makes this pattern easy for attaching to a key ring or for holding in general. This is a great pattern to give someone to show you care.

This is a bad idea! Pill bottle labels should always be visible to prevent errors! This could help put someone in the ER!

Thank you so much for your comment. I bolded our note above to be sure to check the label inside the pill bottle cozy to make sure you know which medicine is inside. I hope that helps.
