This is definitely the perfect season to crochet and to carry water bottle holders! Gloria submitted a pattern lookup request for a Water Bottle Crochet Holder to crochet and I searched online to find some of the most popular patterns available. This collection includes 10 popular free crochet patterns you can crochet to make water bottle holders or water bottle cozies.
Some of these water bottle holders have long straps you can carry over your shoulder and one even has a short handle you can unbutton to attach your holder to another bag or item (like a baby stroller!) – super smart idea for those of us who are already juggling 2 or 3 bags!
I have included a variety of designs below – from simple and straightforward to more difficult designs that are really pretty and would make great gifts! Photo tutorials and video tutorials are available for some of these designs and noted below.
Take a look at the adorable sock monkey cozy and the Popsicle one too! If your child doesn’t want to carry their own – one of these adorable options might be a great choice because of the cuteness factor!
The yarns used in the projects vary from DK weight to Medium Weight Yarns and I’ve included this in the descriptions below to help you decide which pattern you want to try first :)
