Paracord Water Bottle Carrier

Difficulty level: ** Easy

Free Crochet Bottle Carrier Pattern

There's a whole corner of the internet devoted to paracord crafts: belts, bracelets, water bottle carriers, can koozies and so on. However, the items are generally woven. I've long been wondering if paracord could also be crocheted, so when I recently purchased a Klean Kanteen 64 oz Stainless Steel Water Bottle, I decided to give it a try.

Why use paracord? Paracord is very tough and durable and does a good job of protecting the water bottle from scratches and dents. Also, in case of an emergency while hiking or camping, the water bottle carrier can be unraveled giving you about 80-90 feet of paracord, which can come in very handy.

Made one and I like it. Found that military one quart canteen will fit loosely in it. Need to make an oval bottom for the canteen.
Need more patterns and projects like this. ex.:belts, suspenders,etc. BUT they must be made in such a manner that unraveling them will not shorten them.
