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.

Sling Pattern, Knit in the Round, Magic Loop Method:

Using size US 7 needles

CO 29 STS, Split 14 STS on one needle and 15 STS on the other, PM {optional}, join in the round

*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}

Seam the straps onto the sling, be careful not to twist the strap. :)
