{FREE} GLEE : Water Bottle Sling Knitting Pattern

4 photos of a yellow water bottle sling
I loved last weeks free pattern { Blissful Water Bottle Sling } so much that I had to do another one. I think it’s the perfect way to use the lace stitches we’re learning in the #21daysoflaceknitstitches. This pattern uses the Day 3 Beginner Lace Knit Stitch.
This one seemed to knit up faster than last week’s pattern. Hmmm…. It could be because I just made one. Maybe it’s because it’s a 4 row repeat instead of a 6 row repeat, so it’s even easier to memorize. :) I love easy patterns! Plus, it ends like a hat, so if you’ve knitted a hat, the decrease will be a breeze. If you’re a little nervous about knitting a hat, then this will help you get familiar with how a hat ends.

Notes:

  • Knit from the top down
  • You can try it on the water bottle as you go.
  • I knit mine a little smaller than the bottle because it stretches when you wear it.
  • Pick a soft yarn because it rubs on your neck {I like the Dishie yarn, it’s soft & comfortable to wear, no this isn’t sponsored, it’s just my opinion.}

Version #1 Sling Pattern, Knit in the Round, Magic Loop Method:

The only difference between the 16.9oz version and the 24oz version is the height. You’ll CO the same number of STS for both, repeat 1-6 fewer times for the 16.9oz version, everything else is the same.

  • Using size US 7 {4.5mm} Knitting Needles with a 24+” Cable
  • CO 29 STS, Split 14 STS on one needle and 15 on the other, PM {optional}, join in the round
  • Round 1: *K2TOG, YO* K1
  • Round 2: *K*
  • Round 3: *YO, SKP* K1
  • Round 4: *K*
  • *16.9oz : Repeat rounds 1-4, 7 more times, for a total of 8 times.
  • *24oz : Repeat rounds 1-4, 10 more times, for a total of 11 times.
  • Next 3 rounds: *K*
  • Decrease for the Bottom:
  • Next round: *K5, K2TOG* K1 {decrease 4 STS, 25 STS remaining}
  • Next round: *K4, K2TOG* K1 {decrease 4 STS, 21 STS remaining}
  • Next round: *K3, K2TOG* K1 {decrease 4 STS, 17 STS remaining}
  • Next round: *K2, K2TOG* K1 {decrease 4 STS, 13 STS remaining}
  • Next round: *K1, K2TOG* K1 {decrease 4 STS, 9 STS remaining}
  • Next round: *K2TOG* K1 {decrease 4 STS, 5 STS remaining}
  • Do not bind-off. Leave a tail, about 8″, and pull it through the remaining STS. Pull tight and push through the center hole to the inside and weave in the ends.

Strap Pattern, Knit flat:

  • Using size US 11 {8mm} Knitting Needles
  • CO 7 STS {or any odd number of STS}
  • Every row: *K1, P1* K1 {seed stitch}
  • Repeat until desired length and then bind-off, keep in mind that it’ll stretch a couple of inches when wearing with the weight of a water bottle. {Mine ended up being 48” long, after wearing.}
  • Seam the straps onto the sling, be careful not to twist the strap. :)
