Super-easy crocheted flask carrier

Super-easy crocheted flask carrier

This is a really simple and quick crochet project. I made up the pattern as I went along since it’s specifically for my thermos flask, so the pattern below is written to be adaptable. (And not about counting stitches! Yeah!) You will want to adapt it to your own flask or container, so don’t be afraid to crochet to taste!

sl st: slip stitch
ch: chain
sc: single crochet
hdc: half double crochet

Step 1: Make the base

1. Begin by crocheting a flat round circle. I used the magic-ring method, but you can also do a basic flat round circle, if you prefer.

You can also start the flat circle using the magic-ring method. For a video tutorial on the magic-ring method, click here.

2. Don’t worry about counting stitches. Start up a circle any way you wish, and make the flat circle as large as the bottom (diameter) of your flask or container. It’s okay for your flat circle to be slightly smaller than the base of your container because your crocheted carrier will be stretchable.

3. Remember to finish the final round of your flat circle with a sl st into the first sc of the previous round.

Step 2: Make the body

1. *Ch 5, skip 3 ch, sc into the next ch. Repeat from * till you come back to the same spot. Sl st into the first ch of the first ch-5 of the previous row.

2. Sl st to the 3rd ch (the middle of the loop). Sc into that same ch-5 loop. *Ch 5, sc into the next ch-5 loop. Repeat till you reach the end of the row. Sl st into the first ch.

Repeat till you reach the desired height. Do not fasten off.

3. Ch 2, 4 hdc into each loop. You will have a pretty, slightly scalloped edge on the top now. Do not fasten off.

Step 3: Make the handle

Sl st into the next ch. Hdc into the next 4 ch, ch 2, turn. *Hdc into the previous row, ch 2, turn. Repeat * till you are happy with the length of your handle.

Step 4: Fasten the handle onto the other side

1. Make sure your working ch is on your left. Hook into the loop directly across (across the top of the body), yarn over and make an sc.

2. Hook into the next ch, yarn over and make another sc. Repeat 2 more times to finish.

I’m writing this pattern from memory, so if I’ve left out anything, apologies! Please let me know and I’ll fix it. If anything is unclear, leave me a message and I’ll try to explain it better!
