Crochet your own water bottle holder – The Daily Evergreen

Fun project to free the mind from school anxiety; Project can hold up to a 32 ounce water bottle

The crochet water bottle bag project is a beginner-friendly and super cute addition to your accessory wardrobe. It takes about five hours from start to finish if you’re a slow crochet player like me. It’s a perfect pastime while keeping school in mind.

First you will need 4 gauge yarn and a 5mm crochet hook. You’ll also need scissors, a small crochet hook, and fun medium-sized beads (optional).

This project is easy and fun for everyone. I just made a water bottle holder for a friend so they don’t have to carry their water bottle when school is full. It can hold a 32 ounce hydro bottle and attach to the neck of the bottle to ensure it doesn’t fall out.

Don’t be intimidated by this crochet holder. I was wrong a couple of times at the beginning too. It takes practice and patience to create, so don’t give up if it takes a few tries.

Good luck and have fun. Have fun crocheting and welcome back to school!
