Just finished this project and found the pattern very easy to follow, I did however make the strap adjustable and made the bag bigger to accomodate a larger water bottle. Thanks for a great pattern!

I want to make this but not with the recommended yarn. Can anyone who's made tell what weight yarn you used so I can keep it as close as possible to the gauge size? Thanks

I love the idea to carry my water bottle, which is usually cumbersome with an armload of other items! This will make a great gift to encourage others to always tote water along! Very simple to follow directions with basic crochet stitch and not a lot of time or materials to complete. This may be my recommended beginner project for teaching others to crochet

This is an adorable water bottle holder. Usually they are not as cute, kind of resembling those macrame plant hangers from the 70's.

This makes carrying around a bottle of water very convenient.

I love it. I made one for me and io use it every day. i made more for my co-workers and they use theirs every day too

I really like this bag when I'm walking my dog for her water. It is really easy pattern to make

Great idea. I have created and made a carry bag for a cell phone or Ipod. How do I submit it?

I really like how this one looks and great you can hang over your shoulder! Thanks

If you want your hands free and don't want to carry the water bottle on your shoulder...don't make the handle and instead hook one of those large book bag clip/ hooks ( sometimes called carabiner hooks) to the top of the water battle bag and clip it to a belt loop on your jeans/shorts. Works great when you are at a flea market, at an outside fundraiser, walking or riding your bike!

If anyone has trouble printing these patterns out, just copy them by highlighting the portion you want (picture included) and paste in a Word document. That's how I do all of mine and seperate patterns by category (creating folders) I never print out a pattern. Just bring it up on my computer. Hope this helps.

@ marquisnme 5516461: If you are still having trouble printing the pattern, you might want to copy and paste it into a Word document and print from there. Hope this helps! -- FaveCrafts Editor

does any one else have a problem printing out this pattern. Each page cut off the last three lines . I've had this happen with some other patterns on this site too. jr

I've made two of these, and my Mom and sister just love them! Thanks so much!

Looks great and I hope to make this soon out of the recycled shopping bags. Green!

dear lolite which rounds are you skipping, and which rounds are being worked? i wanted to copy this down for when i make this project, but got all confused. could you help me out please? thank you

Needed a water bottle bag with a better fit for a 16 oz. bottle. Having been a crocheter for nearly 40 years, the changes were easy. Pleased with results. Sharing them in hope that it will help someone else achieve their desired results, too. Excited about the variety offered by favecrafts.com. It's awsome. Water Bottle Bag Crochet Pattern My changes to original pattern.

Handle Trim Work 1 Rnd of RSC (Reverse Single Crochet) on each side of handle & top of body (2 times) Tassel Work as directed.

Following the pattern and making adjustments, you can make this for carrying a baby bottle! Just might keep you from leaving it at the Dr's office.

I made this using cotton thread used for dishcloths, since I couldn't get out to find the thread recommended. It was way too big, and fit a quart bottle of my son's! So I switched to the smaller D hook and it fits my 20 oz. drink bottle perfectly and looks like the photo. However, I didn't like the 2 piece handle. On my next attempt, I plan to make the first handle long enough to reach the other side and make increases to match the decreases at the beginning, then slip-stitch the end onto the bag. I think this will make a better looking handle.

try made this out of recycle shopping bags cut to 1 inch and tied together. washable and helpes keep drink cool.

Instructions were perfect. Made this in a couple of hours. When finished, I sponge-stamped large stars over the body the straps. Thanks for creating patterns that are understandable and don't take hours to figure out!
