Simple Large or Small Water Bottle Carrier {Free Crochet Pattern}

You may remember the water bottle carrier that I made for my niece a while back. It was a lot of fun to make, and since then, I have intended to make one for myself each of my family members. Other projects kept creeping up, and I never seemed to get around to making them. Then it was the evening of July 3rd. I needed a water bottle carrier for festivities on the 4th. I had to come up with something simple and quick. I made the larger one, and loved it! It accommodates my 20 oz. stainless steel water bottle, as well as a store-bought 1 liter bottle of water.

A couple days later, my mother-in-law saw my water bottle carrier, and liked it. She enjoys going to outdoor concerts in the park on summer evenings, so it made perfect sense! I had to make one for her. I made her's smaller because she typically drinks the 16 oz. bottles.

I used cotton yarn for the water bottle carriers. It is absorbent, and perfect for catching the condensation. I used a large (N) crochet hook and a net stitch, so that this simple carrier would work up quickly.


Water bottle carriers make wonderful gifts, and they are perfect for craft booths.
