30 Free Easy Crochet Water Bottle Holder Patterns

This is a collection of amazing crochet water bottle holder patterns for you to make. These are practical additions to your everyday life for on-the-go.

I love when crochet is not only beautiful but super practical. That is one of the best combinations if you ask me.

Crochet water bottle holders are easy to make, quick to complete, and such a great addition.

These crochet water bottle carrier patterns are quick to make too as you can use open lacy stitches to create net-like fabric to make your holder from.

Add a long shoulder strap to finish them off and make them super handy as you can wear them as a cross-body bag! Just make sure the end of the strap is securely connected using slip stitch (sl st).

You can use them daily to carry your water bottle around and leave your hands free. Now you have even more time to scroll through your phone without dropping it because your hands are full.

These would be great to use for long walks on the beach or out in the woods with your dog. Either way, they will leave your hands free to handle your dog or pick the sea shells.

How do you crochet a water bottle holder easy?

Crocheting a water bottle holder is fairly easy.

Firstly, you need to choose your preferred stitch. You can use any stitch you like! Or you can get inspired by the free crochet pattern ideas below.

Whether you want it to be textured with bobbles and 3D stitches or lacy net-like fabric, it is really up to you what stitch you prefer. It is completely fine to use just basic stitches too.

Even open stitches are great to use. This way your crochet water bottle holder will be finished in no time at all as the project will grow very quickly.

You also won’t need as much yarn if you choose open stitch combinations. This way you can make more bottle crochet holders from one skein of yarn or accommodate different size water bottles.


Here are some stitches that would work great for a crochet bottle holder pattern:

  5. Free Lacy Shell Crochet Stitch Tutorial
  6. Crochet Rice Stitch In Round And Rows – Free Video Tutorial
  7. Crossed Double Crochet Stitch Free Tutorial

Secondly, to start your bottle holder, you will need to create a simple circle. The circle needs to be big enough to become the bottom of the holder.

So the diameter of the circle should be slightly bigger than the diameter of your water bottle at its widest point.

You can start with a magic circle, then use simple single crochet stitches for the circle as this needs to hold your water bottle in place. Just make sure to mark your first sc with a stitch marker so you don’t lose track.

Once you complete your circle increases, then simply switch to your chosen next stitch for the main body of the crochet water bottle holder.

Continue working in rounds until the body of the bag is tall enough for your water bottle to sit in snugly.

Are crochet water bottle holders a good beginner project to start with?

Crochet water bottle holder can be an easy project to move onto once you master the basic crochet skills.

You can keep the crocheting easy by using beginner-friendly stitches to make it a smooth process. Opt for stitches you have practiced already.

Beginner-friendly stitches like single, half double, or double crochet are all great choices for crocheting your very own water bottle holder.

You will need to however master a couple of other techniques like making a magic ring to start the bottom circle for your water bottle holder.

Please check out this tutorial here on my blog How To Make Crochet Magic Ring The Easy Way.

Crocheting in joined rounds is another skill to master, although it is not too difficult and any of the patterns below will guide you through the process.

What’s the best yarn for crochet water bottle holders?

The best yarn to choose for a crochet water bottle holder is a durable yarn that can absorb moisture.

That means 100% cotton yarn or bamboo yarn would work the best. Cotton yarn doesn’t stretch with wear which is perfect for carrying your water bottle holder around.

It also absorbs moisture very well should your water bottle leak or get a lot of condensation on a hot sunny day.

Tips & Tricks for Successful Crochet Water Bottle Holder Making

Here are a few tips I have for you to make crocheting your very own water bottle holder slightly easier so you too can stay hydrated in a stylish way!

Keep your water bottle with you while crocheting to achieve the best fit possible.

You can make a well-fitting bottle holder if you can measure it against your very own water bottle.

There is no standard size of reusable water bottles, so the best thing would be to have yours with you while you are making your bottle holder.

This way you can measure the bottom circle against your bottle and make the holder nice and snug so your bottle doesn’t fall out.

Also, every bottle has a different height, so you can make your bottle holder as tall as it needs to be. Keep in mind that the crochet water bottle holder will eventually stretch a little with the weight of the water in your bottle.

It is therefore best to work with a bottle that is full of water. Also, stainless steel water bottle might add an extra weight as opposed to plastic. Therefore make sure that the crochet bottle bag has a sturdy carrying strap.

Adjust the strap size if needed

The great thing about making your very own water bottle cozy, is that you can completely customize it for your height.

Again I would advise having the bottle handy and full of water. This will give you a great idea of how much the strap will stretch under the weight of the water when your bottle is full. A long strap that you can wear cross-body is great, however, you don’t want it to be past your knees. So, it is a great way to achieve the desirable strap length.

Use stitch markers to keep track of your progress

Most water bottle holders will be worked in joined rounds to save you from having to sew fabric together. This goes for beginner-friendly pattern ideas too using basic crochet techniques.

Using stitch markers to keep track of your progress will minimize your chances of making a mistake and save you from endless counting of your stitches. Use a sharp yarn needle to secure your ends and prevent them from coming out.

  1. You know, I’ve looked at water bottle holders and thought someday, but now that you’ve brought it to my attention I think I will make a few and see if I get any bites. It’s always a pleasure to read your emails. ♥️
    P.S. Thank You for all of your wonderful patterns.

  2. I’m interested in phone holder. I walk every morning and usually have a pocket to carry my phone. But sometimes there’s no pocket so I have small crossbody bag for my phone. Do you have a pattern for a crossbody phone bag?

    1. I don’t have one unfortunately, but have you seen the water bottle holder from my designer friend Nicki (above) that has a detachable pocket for your phone? That might be a great solution.
