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:

Not reversible.

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}.

When knitting in the round, you’re always knitting the right side of your work.

The only difference between the 16.9oz version and the 24oz version is the height.

*24oz : Repeat rounds 1-4, 10 more times, for a total of 11 times.

Next 3 Rounds: *K*
