Lace Water Bottle Holder
This lace water bottle holder is a quick and easy project that will make water drinking a pleasure. For this pattern, you need to be able to knit with double pointed needles. The water bottle holder will fit up to a 24 oz bottle. You need to pick a lightweight, but strong and slightly stretchy yarn for this project.
I do not recommend using a cotton or worsted weight yarn for this project.
May 26, 2009: I decided to make a revision to my original Lace Water Bottle Holder pattern because I was finding that I would drop stitches without realizing it when working the yarn overs on three double pointed needles. I would realize it when it was too late -- when finished with the pattern -- and I began placing the water bottle in the holder!
At first I thought it was just me dropping stitches while knitting through my pain. But, after another attempt, I decided to take another approach to my pattern. I found it was easier to switch from three to two dpns when beginning the lace pattern.
And, voila, the water bottle holder ends up with no dropped stitches. I have updated the file at the same link.
