Water Bottle Sling

Fits a 16 oz or larger water bottle.

Materials needed:
Stitches needed:
Chain (ch)
Single crochet (SC)
Slip stitch (sl st)

Space (sp)

Skill level:  Easy

Aunt Lydia’s #5 Fashion Metallic Thread or #3 Fashion Thread - approximately 50 yards
Size E hook
Yarn needle
Stitch marker

Use a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.
Rnd 1:  Magic Ring, or Ch 4, sl st to form ring, 6 sc in ring
Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around (12 sc)
Rnd 3:  *sc, 2 sc in next sc* Repeat from * around (18 sc)
Rnd 4:  *sc in next 2 sc,, 2 sc in next sc* Repeat from * around (24 sc)

Begin mesh:
Rnd 5:  *Ch 3, sk 1 sc, sc in next* Repeat from * (12 ch 3 spaces made)
Rnd 6-7:  *Ch 3, sc in next ch 3 space* Repeat from *
Rnd 8-18: *Ch 4, sc in next ch3 sp* Repeat from *

Rnd 19:  3 sc in each ch 3 sp (36 sc)
Rnd 21-22:  Sc around
Rnd: 23: Chain the length of the desired handle. I usually ch 75  Attach to opposite side with sl st without twisting chain. I usually attach it a couple of stitches to the left from the exact middle position on that side to even out the handle placement. If you skip 20 stitches, this would give you that slightly off to the left position.
Rnd: 24-25: sl st in next 2 sc. Turn. Sc length of ch

Finish off, weave in ends.
