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.

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.
