Stay hydrated by bringing your water with you in this cute crochet water bottle holder. The Growing Vines water bottle holder pattern is written so you can make it for most water bottle sizes.
Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for this Growing Vines Crochet Water Bottle Holder pattern. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauges, video tutorials, and sizing information.
Crochet Water Bottle Holder
Here in the desert, it is important to stay hydrated, but it can be hard when you don’t have a good way to carry around your water bottle. So this crochet water botter holder can be made to be carried over your shoulder, put on your belt, or use a carabiner to attach it to a purse or backpack. With this little bottle holder, you can always have your water with you.
Yarn Substitution + Different Size Water Bottles
For this pattern, I used a size 4 (worsted weight) cotton yarn. You could use any yarn to make this water bottle. For larger yarns, you will just work fewer rows (instructions in the pattern) or for a smaller yarn, you will need to work more rows. You can also use a different type of yarn but I prefer cotton because it stretches less.
As you can see in the photos, this pattern can be adjusted to fit different size water bottles. I crocheted a bottle holder for a S’Well 25 oz bottle and a larger Nalgene style water bottle that is 32 ozs.
The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my CH1, turning chain, as a stitch.
– The base is written so that you can work this pattern for many different sizes of bottles. Just work the number of rows you need to make a circle that is just slightly smaller than the base of the bottle.

Row 1: Work 10 HDC in a Magic Circle. SLST to first HDC. (10)
Alternate Row 1: CH3, Work 10 HDC into 3rd CH from Hook, SLST to first HDC. (10)
