The Dopperbag

Beginner friendly crochet pattern

This crochet Dopperbag works up fast and is absolutely beginner friendly. The printable PDF contains a lot of helpful photos. I used Durable Macramé yarn because it’s superstrong.

If you scroll down, you can find the free pattern but there’s also a printable PDF available with instruction photos.

Yarn selection: Durable macramé

Durable Macramé is a firm 100% cotton yarn. It’s perfect for macramé projects like wall hangings and plant hangers, but also suitable for crochet projects. I love working with it because it’s so sturdy! This bag will last a long time! It will be the perfect protector and carrier of your Dopper bottle.

The Sustainable Choice: Dopper Bottles

Aren’t they pretty?? A Dopper leaves no excuse for single-use water bottles. I mean, we’re so over throwing away plastic and we all support the #plastiban completely, don’t we?! Did you notice it’s a bottle and cup in one? Awesome!

The bottle is produced sustainably. And yes, most Doppers are made from plastic, but the kind of plastic you can use again, and again, and again. When you’re done with it – which you probably never will be – it can be fully recycled!

Pattern notes

First you’re going to make the bottom. Don’t close the rounds with a slst but work in a spiral. If needed, put a stitch marker in the last stitch to mark it. Move the SM every round.
Ch4 at the beginning of a round counts as (dc, ch1)
Ch1 at the beginning of a round doesn’t count as a stitch.
The pattern is also availale in the shop. The printable PDF contains a lot of helpful photos.
