Wookie Water Bottle Holder



Materials
Yarn:  Worsted, Brown and grey
Hook: H
Tapestry Needle
 This pattern is for personal use only!  

Special Stitches:  Loop Stitch
To make loop stitch:
In the pattern, it will tell you to turn, which may seem odd because it is the wrong side, BUT will be doing this because the loops actually come out the back side.

When you take the loop that is on your finger, pull it up so it is about 1.5” high (or however big you want your loops-just try to keep whatever size of the loops you choose about the same for all of them): 

Stick your hook into the next stitch:
Wrap the entire loop (which is two strands) around your hook and pull through the stitch:


Put your loop off to the right hand side and pull up yarn and pull through the loops on hook:


Then give your loop a little tug just to make sure it isn’t kinked inside the stitch at all:

Strap:

The strap will require you to use two strands.  You will need to pull up colors(and in doing so you are dropping the other one)  You will be putting the strand you are not working with on the top of the last completed row so that you can crochet over the strand you are not using so it is incorporated with your work.  If this confuses you I’ll say this in my best Obi Wan voice, “Move along…this is not the pattern you are looking for….”
