Lacy Shell Water Bottle Holder - Free Crochet Pattern
Okay, summer is over and here I am publishing a water bottle holder pattern. At first I was going to wait until spring, but then I thought it's better late than never ... right? and so here it is...
I'm trying to think of when you could use it in the winter and the only things I can think of is if you're into playing sports or if you go to the gym regularly. I enjoy my water at room temperature, especially in the winter. But for those who still enjoy their cold drinks in cold weather, the holder will help to catch the drip that normally forms around chilled drinks. Otherwise you really wouldn't need this in the winter.
I crocheted this in a cotton and a synthetic worsted weight yarns and both turned out good, so it's up to you what yarn you want to use.
