Crochet water bottle carrier free pattern

With spring approaching outdoor activities approach too. This year, I’M NOT CARRYING EVERYTHING IN MY PURSE. The heaviest items are the water bottles so I bought 2 kid sized bottles and now I’m crocheting little bottle purses for the kids.

Here’s the pattern I based my project on: http://vallieskids.blogspot.ca/2009/05/16oz.html

There were a few glitches in the pattern so I re-wrote parts of it and added a strap of my own invention.

She used a G hook, but I used a K {6.50 mm} to get the right size for my bottle. I used Bernat handicrafter yarn and one bottle carrier will use one ball of yarn. The water bottle is 6 in tall and 2.5 in in diameter.

Rnd 1) Ch 2. 10 double crochet in 2nd ch from hook, slip st to first double crochet.
Rnd 2) Ch 2 (this did not count as my first double crochet). 2 double crochet in next st and each st around, sl to first double crochet
Rnd 3) Ch 2, double crochet in same st, *2 double crochet in next st, double crochet in next st* rep *to* around, sl st to first dc

Rnd 4) Ch1, sc in same st. *sc in each back loop* rep *to* around, sl to first sc

Rnd 5) Ch 1, sc in same st, *ch2, skip next st, sc in next st*, rep *to* around.
Rnd 6-22 or however tall you need to make your bottle carrier. It’s best to measure this with a full water bottle since the crochet will stretch a bit.) You may want to put a row marker here. I didn’t. * ch2, sc in next ch2 space, repeat from * around.
Rnd 23) Ch1, *sc in each sc and ea ch2 space* rep *to* around,
Rnd 24-25) Ch1, *sc in ea sc* around. End with sl st but do not fasten off.

Strap
Row 1: Ch 1, turn. Sc in next 6 sc.
Row 2: Ch 4, turn. Trc in 2nd sc from hook, ch 1, trc in 2nd sc fr hook, ch 1, trc in 2nd ch fr hook.
Row 3: Ch 4, turn. Trc in ch-1 space, ch1, trc in ch-1 sp, ch 1, trc in ch-1 sp.

Repeat Row 3 until strap measures desired length.

Finish
Sc strap end to bottle holder. Weave in ends.

The water bottle is full so you can see the full effect of the stretch.

I chose to make a netting like strap because I didn’t want a solid one that my kids would sweat under.
