Crochet water bottle holder – makes a very practical gift.
This is a quick and easy pattern that people of all skill levels can enjoy.
With all that has been going on, I pretty much try to go on walks every day, so this water bottle cozy will keep my hands free.
The pattern was designed to fit 500 ml plastic water bottles, but you can also repeat the last couple of rows and make it tall enough to fit the metal water bottles.
This will make a great item to sell at summer craft fairs. Who wouldn’t want their hands free?
The pattern is really easy to memorize and once you get the base circle made, you just keep repeating 2 rows to make your crochet water bottle carrier as tall as you want.

The crochet bottle carrier is worked from bottom up. The straps are crocheted separately and sewn on to the holder. I found this was the best way to make a sturdy crochet water bottle holder that can hold the weight of water.
1. Worsted weight cotton yarn. I used Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton which is a thinner worsted weight yarn. The colors I used are Ecru, Mint, and Camel.
2. An F(3.75)mm hook for the holder and a G(4.25)mm for the strap.
3. Tapestry needle to weave in the ends and to sew the straps.
To fit a 500ml plastic bottle. You can also make it fit the average metal bottle by crocheting the last 2 rounds a few more times.
It takes around 100 yards to make one crochet water bottle holder.

Straps for your Crochet Water Bottle Carrier
Note: The strap will stretch when you place the bottle of water in it. I have given straps in 2 lengths to fit your height. Make the shorter strap if you are of medium height and bigger one if you are tall.
Leaving a 12-inch tail, use the bigger hook to chain 154( 164 if you are a tall person). Switch back to the smaller hook.
Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across to end, turn.——-153(163)sts
Row 2: Ch 1 (counts as a sc), 1 sc in each st across to end. Do not fasten off——-153(163)sts
Slip Stitch Round
Note: A sl st round is worked around the strap to prevent it from stretching too much with use.
Switch back to the bigger hook, ch 1 at the corner, work 2 sl sts across the base of the strap, ch 1 at the next corner, 1 sl st in the free loops of each foundation ch across to the next corner. ch 1 at the corner, work 2 sl sts across the base of the strap, 1 sl st in each st across until you reach the first corner where you started the sl st round, sl st to beg ch-1, fasten off with a 12-inch tail for sewing.
Attaching the Strap to the Crochet Bottle Holder
Insert the strap behind a shell and sew securely in place. I made running stitches in a square shape.
Place the other end of the strap behind the shell that is exactly opposite to the first one and sew in place.
Finishing your Crochet Water Bottle Bag
Weave in any tails left.
