Diamond Mesh Water Bottle Holder

My Mum had been asking for a water bottle holder so I asked her to look through a few patterns and she decided on this one.

Pattern: Diamond Mesh Water Bottle Holder by Jennifer Ozses

Size: None stated, my base diameter came out to be about 4″

Yarn: Thorobred 8 Ply Acrylic

Hook: 4.5mm

Before I started, I wanted to know as a rough gauge how big the designer’s holder was but I couldn’t find this information. Anyhow, I used DK yarn with 4.5mm hook (pattern used 4.25mm) and mine turned out to have a base diameter of about 4″. The bottle in the picture above has a 500ml capacity and the holder fits it comfortably.

The pattern was very clear, easy to follow and worked up very quickly. I omitted the flower as Mum didn’t want one. She also wanted a shorter hand strap rather than the long cross-body strap in the pattern so I modified it to a 10.75″ strap. I also didn’t crochet it separately.

My strap modifications:

After row 19 of body, do not fasten off. Continue to ch 40 and sl st in hdc across. Turn.
Row 1: Sc across, sl st in hdc, ch 1, turn
Row 2: Sc across, sl st in hdc, fasten off
I thought the holder turned out rather cute and Mum liked it. She also said she received lots of compliments from her colleagues. Mission accomplished!
