With the warmth of last week -40C- drinking is no superfluous luxury! As a personal counselor, I have a number of people that I have been able to guide for a long time. One of ‘my’ cliΓ«nts had hooked a bag of all chains, in which she puts her drinking bottle when we -for example, go for a walk. Really handy! Now she was crocheting a new one and while I was sitting there, I couldn’t help: but I also had to crochet one!
I enjoyed hooking this up: the next day I had my bottle bag ready!
And see the result here! I am very happy with it!

Crochet bottle bag!

Necessities:

  • Supermarket bottle 500 ml
  • Crochet hook 4 mm
  • Cotton yarn (I bought this with the Zeeman)
    Elsa melange €2,79 (50% acrylic 50% cotton)
  • stitch marker
  • Darning needle
  • Scissors
  • Optional: Leather label

Description:
Make a magic ring.
Mark the first stitch every round. Crochet in the round: you crochet your first stitch on top of the 1st stitch of the previous round, so you don’t close with a slip stitch

Round 1. Work 8 Single Crochet in the ring.
Round 2. In the 1st stitch you crochet *in 1 stitch: 1 Single Crochet 1 chain 1 Single Crochet 1 chain, In the next stitch: 1 Single Crochet 1 Chain*
Repeat from * – * 3x more
= 24 stitches (12 Single Crochet + 12 Chain)

In the next rounds you only crochet around the Chain, so you do not crochet on the Single Crochet that you also crochet, you skip this one.

Round 3. * In the next 2 Chain you crochet 1 Single Crochet 1 Chain, in the next Chain you crochet 1 Single Crochet 1 Chain 1 Single Crochet *
Repeat from * – * 3x more
= 32 stitches (16 Single Crochet and 16 Chain)

Round 4. * In the next 3 chain you crochet 1 Single Crochet 1 chain, in the next chain you crochet 1 Single Crochet 1 chain 1 Single Crochet 1 chain *
Repeat from * – * 3x more
= 40 stitches (20 Single Crochet and 20 Chain)

Round 5* In the next 4 Chain you crochet 1 Single Crochet 1 chain, in the next chain you crochet 1 Single Crochet 1 chain 1 Single Crochet 1 chain *
Repeat from * – * 3x more
= 46 stitches (23 Single Crochet and 23 chain)

Round 6 * Crochet 1 Single Crochet and 1 chain in each chain *
Repeat from * – * until the end of the row
= 46 stitches (23 Single Crochet and 23 chain)

Round 7 to 38. Repeat round 6.

Round 39. Crochet 1 Single Crochet around each chain
= 23 Single Crochet

The handle:
Round 1. Simply continue at the place where you stayed at round 39. * Crochet 1 Single Crochet and 1 chain * Repeat from * – * 3x more

Round 2. Crochet 1 chain, and turn around * crochet around the chain from the previous round 1 Single Crochet 1 Chain * Repeat from * – * 2x more, crochet in the last Single Crochet 1 Single Crochet.

Tour 3 to 174. Repeat round 2
Now turn your entire work inside out

Row 175. Now attach 8 stitches next to the start of the handle -exact on the other side of the ‘bottle’ – the needle and
* crochet 1 Single Crochet 1 Chain *
Repeat from * – * 2 more crochet 1 more single crochet and bind off.
Make sure you have enough yarn left so that you can attach the start even more with the thread. This makes your bag extra sturdy!

Have fun with this free crochet pattern!
