Granny Stripe Water Bottle Cozy & Carrier

Pattern by: Kaitlyn

I just love crocheting with the granny stripe pattern, and I’ve made several projects with it. So I wanted to create one of my own patterns with the granny stripe to share with you! This cozy should fit a water bottle that’s about 8 in. around and 7 in. tall, but you can adjust the amount of granny stripe rows to make the cozy taller or shorter (you can also adjust the length of the handle, but keep in mind that the handle will stretch as you use it).

 

 

 

Materials:

  • size US J/10 or 6mm crochet hook
  • worsted weight yarn (I recommend cotton yarn)
  • scissors
  • yarn needle

Let’s get started…

  1. ch 4, sl st to first ch to make a ring
  2. ch 2, 7 dc in the ring, sl st to first dc (7 sts at the end of the round)
  3. ch 2, 2 dc in each st around, sl st to first dc (14 sts)
  4. ch 2, *2 dc in next st, dc in next st, repeat from * around, sl st to first dc (21 sts)
  5. ch 1, sc around, sl st to first sc
  6. ch 3, 2 dc in same st as ch 3, skip 2 sts, *3 dc in next st, skip 2 sts, repeat from * around, sl st to top of ch 3 (21 sts)
  7. sl st 2, sl st into space between the 3dc clusters, ch 3, 2 dc in same space as ch 3, *3 dc in next space, repeat from * around, sl st to top of ch 3
  8. repeat step 7 for 8 more rows of granny stripe (10 rows of granny stripe total)
  9. ch 1, *sc 2, sc in space,repeat from * around, sl st to first sc (21 sts)
  10. ch 1, sc around, sl st
  11. repeat step 10 (3 rows of sc total)
  12. ch 1, turn, sc 4 ( the ch 1 does not count as the first st)
  13. ch 1, turn, sc across (5 sts including the ch 1)
  14. repeat step 13 for 28 more rows (30 rows of sc total) or until handle is about 8 inches
  15. fasten off now if you are not going to sl st the handle to the cozy
  16. count 6 sts from the attached end of the handle and start sewing the unattached end of the handle to the 7th st (you could also turn the cozy inside-out so the seam isn’t visible, and sl st the unattached end of the handle onto the cozy– this is what I did)
  17. fasten off now if you used sl st to attach the handle to the cozy, and weave in ends

There should be 6 sts in one space between the handles, and 5 sts in the other space. Also, if you used sl st to attach the handle to the cozy, make sure you flip the cozy inside-out again so the RS is facing out!

I hope you enjoyed making this project as much as I did. If you have any questions concerning this pattern, please leave a comment below, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Have fun crocheting! Here’s a few pictures of the cozy I made. The picture on the left shows the cozy on my water bottle; the picture on the right shows a close-up of the granny stripe rows:

    BEAUTIFUL!! You must teach me how to crochet! I have one question….What brand yarn did you use, and did the colors/patterns have names? Because that is the cutest color combination I have ever seen in my short life!

    • I know, isn’t it a beautiful yarn? I used a multi-color Peaches & Cream yarn (the 1 lb. cone). The color is #180 (Peppercorn).
