Water Bottle Cozy & Carrier

Pattern by: Kaitlyn

This pattern is a 2 in 1! You get a water bottle cozy, which is great for protecting a glass water bottle, and it makes any water bottle look great. You also get a water bottle carrier, which is nice if your water bottle doesn’t have a handle to carry it with. Another great thing about this cozy, is that it fits most water bottles’ circumference. All you have to do is adjust the depth and the length of the handle.

Materials:

  • size US I/9 or 5.5mm crochet hook
  • 1 skein worsted weight yarn
  • scissors
  • yarn needle

Let’s get started…

  1. ch 5, sl st to 5th ch from hook to form a ring
  2. ch 1, 10 hdc in the ring, sl st to first hdc (if you worked over the tail, pull it tight to close up the circle)
  3. ch 1, 2 hdc in each st around, sl st to first hdc

If you need a wider circle to cover the bottom of the water bottle, follow this example, adding one st in between the 2 hdc every inc round: ch 1, 2 hdc in the next st, hdc in the next sts, sl st to first hdc. However, do not make the circle too big, or the cozy will not be snug enough to the water bottle. Remember, the cozy will stretch with use! When you are ready to start making the depth of the cozy, move on to step 4.

4.  ch 1, hdc in each st around, sl st to first hdc

5.  rep step 4 for the depth of the cozy

Once you have the “body” of the water bottle finished, you can start the handle of the cozy. First, count how many sts you have in the round, then multiply that number by .25. For example, I have 20 sts around. When I multiply that by .25, I get the number 5. Whatever number you get when you follow the previous steps I just explained, you are going to use in step 6.

6.  ch 1, hdc in the number of sts you figured out, minus 1 st (I would hdc in 4 sts, because the ch 1 counts as a st)

7.  ch 1, turn, hdc in each st across

8.  repeat step 7 for the length of the handle

9. fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing

Now that you’ve finished crocheting the handle, it’s time to connect it to the other side. Count 5 sts from the connected end of the handle, then start attaching the first st of the not connected end of the handle to the 6th st. You should have 5 sts in between each connected end of the handle when you’re finished.

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 picture of one of my Water Bottle Cozy n’ Carriers:
