Water-bottle Holder Pattern

Four years ago I made a water-bottle holder up as I went along, and it turned out looking terrible. I was still getting the hang of crocheting, even though I had been crocheting for 4 years already.

Water-bottle holder 4 years ago, crocheted at age 9.

The problem with this holder was that it was just a flat piece of crochet fabric folded over and sewn together and it did not have flat bottom, so I could not set the bottle down without it tipping over.

I have now figured out how to make one with a flat bottom so you can set the bottle down without it tipping over.

I am posting this pattern for free, please do not sell this pattern, claim it as your own or make and sell the finished product online.   

The yarn I am using is Red Heart Super Saver and the color is Bon Bon.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
