Shell Water Bottle Holder
Carry the holder over your shoulders to free up your hands.
This shell water bottle holder is a perfect match for this oval tote crochet pattern. It is very simple to make and is great for taking along to carry your water bottle on a hot summer's day.
You could also use this pattern as a cup cozy if you do not attach the handles.
I used Red Heart Soft Touch, but any medium worsted weight yarn will work just as well.
Thank you to all those who let me know about the printing problems. I think the "Print Friendly" code is working again. Not sure what the problem was but it should be working now. Let me know if you still run into issues.
And you can still right click and select print. It will give you a clean ad-free layout of the page. After you select print you can change the destination in the top left and save it as a PDF, fax it, or send it to your Google Drive. :)
