Water Bottle Carrier

I like to take a water bottle with me when I go out, ya never know when you're gonna need a drink. But often the bottle doesn't fit in my bag or purse, so I figured it would be handy to have a carrier just for my water bottle.

I was thrilled when the carrier turned out to fit my Sigg water bottle perfectly! On a side note, I highly recommend visiting the Sigg web site, it's not just a water bottle, it's an experience.

The pattern came from the Pattern-a-Day Crochet calendar for 2006. If you are interested in the pattern you'll have to let me know so I can pass it along to you since there is no version on the web. I didn't follow the pattern exactly since I couldn't quite follow the instructions for the strap and ties, but they were easy enough to adapt.

Materials used:
Bernat Super Value worsted weight yarn in soft forest green
Bernat Super Value worsted weight yarn in burgundy

Hey T-Ra, this water bottle holder seems like a pretty practical item. And your going to have to fill me in on this sigg water bottle deal. I had never even heard of them until I went on the site you posted.

You know what I love about this crocheted item? It's practical. So often you see crochet patterns for stuff that you have no use for -- or, it's for something that is just plain ugly. I'm so glad we started this little webring of ours so we can share the useful stuff. I know h-bomb is a big water drinker -- no doubt she will attempt this one.

(And GREAT JOB by the way!)

Mel, the Sigg water bottle is an aluminium water bottle that won't leach chemicals into the water. The plastic top on it is also inert so all those hormones and chemicals that are a problem in other types of plastics aren't found here. They also come in really fun designs. Visit the web site, you'll see what I mean.
