With just a few basic stitches and a little bit of yarn, you can create a fun and functional accessory that's perfect for hiking, biking, or just running errands around town.
What You'll Need
1 skein of worsted weight yarn
Size H/8 (5mm) crochet hook
Step 1: Chain Stitch
To start, create a slipknot and chain 50 stitches.
Step 2: Double Crochet
Next, work a double crochet stitch into the fourth chain from the hook. Continue to work double crochet stitches across the row.
Step 3: Mesh Stitch
To create the mesh stitch, chain two and skip the next stitch. Work a double crochet stitch into the next stitch, then chain two and skip the next stitch. Repeat this
pattern across the row.
Step 4: Bottom of the Holder
When you reach the end of the row, chain two and turn your work. Continue to work the mesh stitch pattern for a total of 30 rows.
Step 5: Top of the Holder
To create the top of the holder, fold your work in half and slip stitch the two short ends together. Then, single crochet around the top of the holder, working two single crochet stitches into each chain two space.
Step 6: Handle
To create the handle, chain 60 stitches and attach the chain to the other side of the holder with a slip stitch. Single crochet around the other side of the holder, working two single crochet stitches into each chain two space.
And there you have it, your very own crochet mesh water bottle holder! Not only is this project fun and easy to make, but it's also a great way to reduce waste by using a reusable water bottle instead of disposable plastic ones. So why not give it a try and make one for yourself or a friend today?
