Crochet water bottle holder and a phone pouch, a perfect and fun way to have your water and phone with you on days you are out and about.
Recently, I decided to be more conscious about my health and one of the ways I am doing that is to drink more water. This water bottle carrier would go a very long way in helping me archive my goals.
Oh, how I love adding some twists to my crochet patterns. The crochet water bottle holder is not left out! How about keeping your phone secured in a phone pouch when you are also out? And having your hands free? This sounds divine as I find it difficult to hold multiple items with two kids!

How to crochet a water bottle holder
Crocheting your own version of the water bottle holder is a quick project. For this project, all you need are just your best yarn and hook and preferably make sure to have a water bottle handy as it would be helpful to keep checking for measurement.
Inspiration for this water bottle carrier with phone pouch pattern
A few weeks ago, I published Roo Backpack with a bucket hat and so much love the set as it’s so functional. The backpack also has a pocket incorporated inside of the bag which makes keeping little items easier. Since I got lots of compliments and usage from this bag, a water bottle bag with a phone ouch came to mind.
