Kimberly wrote in with this link to her pattern for making an insulin vial cosy: A friend’s mother had dropped and broken 2 of her insulin vials within a week, spilling all her insulin, so upon my friend’s plea for help, I crocheted a little cozy for her to try and protect her vials if she happened to drop them again. I thought others might find this useful, so I wanted to try and put out this pattern to reach as many people as possible.

Hi – I was hoping someone would be willing to send me the pattern for the cosy insulin vial. My granddaughter has Type 1 diabetes and has to have insulin twice a day and I know her Mom is always worried about her dropping the vials and this would be a perfect gift.

Thank you for your help.

HI Janet, it looks as if this pattern is no longer available, thanks for letting us know. You could try using a pattern for a chap stick cosy or similar, and making it wider to fit the vial. There are lots of chap stick cosy patterns on Kate
