Water Bottle Holder – Free Crochet Pattern with Chart

Pattern now includes video tutorial which you can find here: Crochet Video Tutorial – Mesh Water Bottle Holder

I recently went searching for a water bottle holder crochet pattern, but didn’t find one to my liking…so I wrote my own! It’s actually the very first pattern I’ve written. A nice simple pattern, and it works up quickly. Now…I have an 11-month old so I barely ever get uninterrupted crochet time, so I don’t know how long it takes exactly. An experienced crocheter could probably knock it out in an hour or less. That’s instant gratification basically!

Like I said, this is my first written pattern, and I haven’t had any testers yet other than myself. Please let me know if you see anything awry when you’re working the pattern up. Thanks!

EDITED TO ADD: Recently I made my first crochet chart! I thought it was fitting my first crochet chart should be for my first written pattern.

I use ch 2’s in the pattern to represent some dc’s, but if you know standing dc, DO use it!

Water Bottle Holder Crochet Pattern


Worsted Weight Yarn – I used cotton, approx 2oz.

Size H hook for a med-large bottle, Size G hook for small

Pattern Notes:

Each Ch 2 at the beginning of round counts as dc. I realize most patterns use a ch 3, but I feel it leaves too large of a gap. Feel free to use ch 3 throughout the pattern instead if you like.

End of each round is joined to top of ch 2 with sl st.


ch = Chain
sl st = Slip Stitch
st = Stitch
sk = Skip
sc = Single Crochet
dc = Double Crochet
BL = Back Loop
Rep = Repeat

1: Ch 3.
Sl st to first ch.
Ch 2. 11 dc into ring. (12 dc)

2: Ch 2.
Dc into same st as ch 2.
2 dc into each st around. (24 dc)

3: Ch 2.
2 dc into next st.
* 1 dc into next st, 2 dc into next st. *
Rep from * to * until end. (36 dc)

4: Ch 2
* dc into BL only of next st *
Rep from * to * until end.

5: Ch 2
* dc into next st. *
Rep from * to * until end.

6 – 14: Ch 4. Sk 1 st and dc into the next.
* Ch 1. Skip 1 st and dc into the next. *
Rep from * to * until 1 st remains
Ch 1
Sl st into Ch 3 of Ch 4 from beginning of round

15 & 16: ch 1 (Place stitch marker if needed)
Sc into same st as ch 1
Sc in each stitch around
Sl st into sc from beginning of round to join
Add more sc rows if desired

Strap: Ch 2
* dc into next 3 st, ch 2, turn *
Repeat from * to * until desired
strap length is reached.
Flatten bottle holder with
the strap in the middle.
Fold strap over to find the st you
will be going into on your “mirrored” side.
Sl st strap to mirrored side.
Sl st in each st around(including through the other
side of the strap) until you get back
to the beginning sl st.
Sl st into next ST and fasten off.
