Water Bottle Carrier {Free Crochet Pattern}

With summer coming (those of you in the northeast, I PROMISE, it is coming!) we have to remember to drink plenty of water, so having a water bottle on hand is pretty convenient. Having to lug said water bottle around with you everywhere you go... not so convenient.
UNLESS, you have a really cool and stylish water bottle carrier.

This water bottle carrier is not only cool and stylish, it is fun, handy, and easy to just sling over your shoulder. You can use whatever colors strike your fancy, and you can even make the strap a bit longer to fit across your body, if you prefer that style.

I wanted to do something a little fun with the stitching for this water bottle carrier, so included a modified double crochet stitch. The modified double crochet stitch has a slightly different look than the traditional double crochet stitch. It is easy to do, too! Let's get started!

Join the strap:
Count 12 sts  on the main piece, skip those sts so that when you join, you will have an even number of skipped sts on either side of the strap.  Making sure your strap isn't twisted, and working through both the strap sts and main piece sts, sl st 4, sl st the turning ch 2 onto the next st.
Finish off and weave in all ends.


Happy Crocheting!
