Rainbow Hearts Bottle Holder – Free Crochet Pattern

Rainbow Hearts Bottle Holder - Free Crochet Pattern

Spring is going to be here soon, although you wouldn’t know it by looking out my window. The ground is covered with a few inches of snow, and more is falling. It’s March here in New England, so, anything goes weather-wise.

When the warmer weather does get here I look forward to being outside much more of the time, hula hooping and going for walks. Music festivals are also a family favorite, so we try to get to one or two a year – as finances allow. Crochet water bottle holders are really great for festivals, walking/hiking, and any other activity where you will be wanting to reach for a gulp of water fairly often.

The “Rainbow Hearts” crochet bottle holder is a fun way to keep your water handy, yet hands free. Moms, I know you’ll find water bottle holders particularly wonderful. Make your child(ren) a fun water bottle holder they will want to carry around and then you won’t have to carry 3 extra water bottles in your oversized purse.




Now, let’s address the rainbow 🌈. I have always loved the rainbow colors, ever since I was a little girl and obsessed with Rainbow Brite. I’m dating myself now but that’s ok…
The gay and lesbian community have adopted the rainbow as a symbol of pride, this is commonplace news. For the record, I believe in equal rights for all people of all races, which means any two humans should be allowed to marry and be together if they want to, without fear of discrimination based on who they love. So, if you are gay and would like to use this crochet pattern to make a pride bottle holder, awesome! For the ultra conservative people who feel inclined to get preachy with me for my views, save your breath, it’s not worth your time or mine. We can enjoy crocheting and not have the same opinion.

As I mentioned, I have loved rainbows since I was a little girl. So you know what? Even thought I’m straight, I still wear rainbows! Yes, you too, even if you are not gay, can wear rainbows. It’s true! The world will not explode. Will one or two people wonder if you are gay? Maybe. But who cares? If you want to wear rainbow colors, dammit, wear rainbow colors. They’re fun.

Of course, the bottle holder doesn’t have to be rainbow, it can be whatever colors you like! I made a gray one with pink hearts and it’s really cute. I was running low on the gray and was afraid of not having enough yarn, so I skipped one repeat at the end and made the strap much shorter. It still fits regular size water bottles, perfect for my little girl.
