I recently published my third crochet pattern for the Kindle. This one is a felted water bottle holder.
The yarn used is Manos del Uruguay Kettle-Dyed yarn. I’m finding this yarn to be great for felting because it is lightly handspun which means there are points in the yarn that are close to the consistency of roving. And while the yarn can be a bit expensive, the pattern requires only one skein, so why not splurge? Of course, you can always substitute a comparable wool yarn, and I’ve included a link in the pattern to an article that explains how to do this.
Advanced beginners who are comfortable with the basic crochet stitches (i.e., single, half-double, and double crochet) will have fun learning how to crochet in the round with this pattern. My instructions are fairly detailed, so there shouldn’t be any problems knowing how many stitches you should have in a given round, as well as how to recognize where a round begins and ends.
There’s just a bit of increasing required to create the bottom of the water bottle holder, but again, I include enough detail so that you know how many stitches you should have as you increase the appropriate number of stitches in the rounds that require them. The body, on the other hand, is crocheted in the round on an even number of stitches.
I also introduce advanced beginners to reverse single crochet which I use as a trim on the bottom and top of the bag. And for those crocheters who know how to knit, I’ve included an option to create an I-cord strap, along with instructions for a crocheted strap.
Of course, if you’ve been crocheting for a while, you should be able to whip up this water bottle holder in no time at all.
