This free crochet pattern is for a Water Bottle Holder with a Phone Pocket. This pattern is made using normal and linked crochet stitches as well as Dishie yarn from WeCrochet and includes a full video tutorial for the pattern.
It’s finally getting warmer. The flowers are blooming and I feel the desire to go hiking or wandering through the beautiful nature and parts of San Diego. But Springtime in San Diego is pretty much summertime already since we only really have 2 seasons: cold or rainy and warm with lots of sunshine. So that means you need plenty of water when walking around. But nobody likes to wear a backpack or hold their water bottle the entire day when out and about.
How about a Water Bottle Holder with a Phone Pocket. handy, convenient, and of course beautiful and stylish. Add the pocket or remove the pocket, that is up to you. But this handy pattern is easy to crochet and even includes a full detailed video tutorial to make it easy to create your own.

Combining Linked Crochet and Normal Crochet Stitches together
The two stitches used in this pattern are normal treble crochet stitches and linked treble crochet stitches (us terms). That means the pattern displays and creates both sturdiness from the linked crochet and laciness from the normal treble crochet stitches.
These stitches are combined in a unique checkboard manner making sure that the water bottle holder can both stretch and provide sturdiness for multiple different bottle sizes. Furthermore, it provides a unique look and style you can’t achieve with just normal or just linked crochet stitches. Only a combination of both will create both style and functionality for a pattern like this.
Combining stitches, techniques and inventing new stitches mixed in with lots of laughter and humor is what The Crochet Club is all about. No more “my work is not good enough” or “it’s not perfect”. You will experience how to be the best crocheter you always wanted to be. Be proud of every stitch of your work.
Now let’s talk about what the best yarn for this project is, shall we?
Best Yarn for Water Bottle Holders Crochet Patterns
Well, that all depends on what you prefer. I like using really soft and sturdy yarn that can last a long time and won’t stretch too much. So I thought the WeCrochet’s yarn “Dishie” was the perfect yarn for this handy Water Bottle Holder. If you prefer subbing the yarn you can easily use any wool, acrylic, and cotton yarn for this project. Just make sure it’s worsted weighted yarn. I do prefer cotton for this project because water may touch the yarn.
Typically water bottle holders are made with cotton and have some lacy texture so that the bottle holder can fit multiple different types of water bottles.
But not every water bottle holder includes a pocket. Why not? It should!
We all have phones. So let’s add a pocket so we don’t have to stuff our phone into our pants pockets, which for women is mostly too small anyways.

Free Written Pattern for the Water Bottle Holder
You’ll crochet the Water Bottle from the bottom up, including the strap. Then you’ll crochet the pocket separately. You can sew the pocket on permanently or temporarily like me.
Start crocheting bottom of the water bottle holder
Make a Magic Ring
R1: add 7 sc to the ring, close ring, and use a stitch marker (continuous rounds)
R2: 2 sc in each st
R3: *1 sc in 1 st, 2 sc in the next st, repeat from * until the end
R4: *1 sc in the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next st, repeat from * until the end
R5: *1 sc in the next 3 sts, 2 sc in the next st, repeat from * until the end
Crocheting the body of the Water Bottle Holder and Straps
R6: 1 atc, 1 ltr in the next 5 sts, 1 tr in the next 6 sts, 1 ltr in the next 6 sts, 1 tr in the next 6 sts, 1 ltr in the next 6 sts, 1 tr in the next 4 sts, 2 tr in the last st, sl st to the first st
R7: 1 atc, 1 tr in the next 5 sts, 1 ltr in the next 6 sts, 1 tr in the next 6 sts, 1 ltr in the next 6 sts, 1 tr in the next 6 sts, 1 tr in the next 6 sts, sl st to the first st
R8: 1 atc, 1 ltr in the next 5 sts, 1 tr in the next 6 sts, 1 ltr in the next 6 sts, 1 tr in the next 6 sts, 1 ltr in the next 6 sts, 1 tr in the next 6 sts, sl st to the first st
R9-12: repeat R7 and R8
R13: 1 atc, 1ltr in each st, sl st to the first st
Now crochet the strap right away (you can make the strap shorter or longer, just reduce or add rows)
R1-48: 1 atc, 1 ltr in the next 6 sts, turn
Now sew the last row exactly on the opposite side where you stated the strap.
Crocheting the Phone Pocket using Linked Crochet
R1: starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 atc, 1 ltr in the next 11 sts, turn (12 sts)
R2-19: 1 atc, 1 ltr in the next 11 sts, turn (12 sts)
Next, fold the rectangle in half and sew or crochet (I used sc sts) the sides together to make a pocket.
Now sew the pocket to the water bottle holder permanently or add it with rings, the way I did, so you can remove the pocket as you wish.
Finally, fasten off and weave in all your ends.
