Here is another pouch made for Joanna's Nalgene 1lit. bottle. There is not much choice of color for this material at the craft shop so I pick this dark brown color. It took me about 4+ hours to finish crocheting the pouch.


MATETIAL: 2 rolls of  Nylon thread (around 50gm each) and a size 5 crochet hook

SIZE OF BOTTLE: 29.5 cm circumferance and 9cm diameter (NALGENE 1litre bottle)

For those of you in West Malaysia you can try the address below for supply of the Ondori thread.  This Distributor's address came with the ball packaging but I am not sure if it is still valid.

No. 6 & 8 Jalan 12/34A Kepong Enterpreneur Park, Kuala Lumpur 52100, Wilayah Persekutuan
PH:603-62516928   FAX: 603-62580928


Round 1:  Make a magic circle; 3 chain; 15 double crochet in the loop; join by slip stitch at the first 3rd ch  (total 16 dc).

Round 2:  2 ch, 2 dc in each dc around (total 32 dc).

Round 3:  3 ch, *2 dc in next stitch, 1 dc in next stitch. Repeat around from * (3 rounds will make a 8cm diameter base).

Round 4: Repeat Round 3

1st Round:   1 ch; 1 half double crochet in each dc all round; slip stitch onto the 1st ch

2nd Round:  4 ch; 1 triple crochet to next hdc; *2 ch; 2 tc; Repeat * all round; ss to the 4th ch
Repeat 2nd Round till it reach almost the neck of your bottle

Now do 6 ch or more (depending on how big you want the petal to be); 1 single crochet into the next space (in between the tc); 1sc;

6 sc into each 6-ch-space; ss into the 1st sc

1ch; ss to the inside and 1sc into the nearest space between the tc; *6 ch; 1sc to the next space; Repeat * all round; ss to the 1st sc

(ss along 2 ch; 1sc; *6ch; 1sc to the next space; Repeat * all round) Repeat this round ( ) if your bottle has a longer neck. 

You can use a ribbon or shoe lace to string through the final row of spaces to secure the pouch to your bottle.  Here I crocheted a string of chains with a flower at each end to string through and tied a bow-tie.

6-8 ch (depending on how big you want the loop to be) close with ss; build chains to your preference of length; 6-8 ch and close with ss (2nd loop); 
ss all through the rest of the chains you have crocheted; ss to end of the 1st loop;
Tie and cut (slip the end through the stitches and use a lighter to slightly burn the end of the thread to keep it intact)
Add a ring-clip to each loop and now you can hook your sling onto your pouch and you are ready to go!

Other Pattern: for the sling.
