Summer is here and it is a hot one. That is why I created the On-the-Go Water Bottle Carrier free crochet pattern. With this little carrier you will never be without a bottle of water. All you have to do is attach it to your purse, backpack or stroller and go.

This water bottle holder is designed to hold a standard size plastic water bottle, but I have provided instructions to make it fit any size water bottle. We use these water bottles when we take our evening strolls through the park. Yes we really do this. We hang our water carriers to our strollers leaving our hands free to play Pokemon Go.

On the Go Water Carrier | Beat the summer heat and never be without water when you make on of these quick and easy water bottle carriers. This free crochet pattern is great for beginners, people with not a lot of time to crochet, anyone with a little extra yarn from a project or anyone who drinks water. Make a crochet water bottle carrier for everyone in your family before your next family outing. This bottle carrier can be fastened to a backpack, purse or stroller. #freecrochetpattern #free #crochet #pattern #waterbottle #beattheheat #watercarrier #bottleholder #hiking #stroller

No stroller? This crochet pattern is still worth its weight in yarn. You can attach this water bottle carrier to the strap of a backpack or purse and your other belongings won’t get wet from condensation. I have provided two patterns for water bottle holders so make the one that fits your style.

Speaking of yarn, this project takes very little yarn and very little time to complete. If you are familiar with my blog you may know that every Thursday I release a “30 Minute Thursday” free crochet pattern and this is one of them. This project will take you less than 30 minutes to complete and you are ready to go on your adventure.

I decided to use Red Heart’s Scrubby Smoothie yarn that I had left over from my Fish Beach Backpack. This yarn is really soft and does not stretch like an acrylic yarn. Cotton yarn is great for items that will take lots of wear and tear. Now, let’s get started making some water bottle holders.

Bottle Holder Adjustments

If the base in not large enough after row 2 to cover the base of your water bottle then complete row 2b.

R2b: *Dc, Inc* repeat from *to* around, slst to first Dc, Ch2, turn.

Check the work against the base of your water bottle. If it the same size then continue to Row 3. If it is still too small then complete row 2c.

R2c: *2Dc, Inc* repeat from *to* around, slst to first Dc, Ch2, turn.

This should be wide enough for most water bottle bases. Continue to Row 3. 

Wow, wasn’t that quick and easy? Go ahead and make another on for a friend or one for each of your family members. My family just loves these useful little carriers and take them every time we leave the house.
