Yarn Caddy

I love my cats, but they can cause a lot of problems for a knitting or crochet project with their curiosity of string and their shedding of hair. I found this really easy pattern for making a yarn caddy. I love that it uses a 2-liter bottle and it is a great way to use some scrap yarn.
This crocheted up really fast and I think that it is a great way to keep the yarn you are working with nice and clean and tangle free.

****It has come to my attention that the pattern link for the yarn caddy is no longer available so I typed up a basic version of what I did to make mine.

Remove the bottom of a 2 liter bottle, I used an exacto knife and then re-cut it with scissors to smooth the edge. Punch a hole about every inch around the bottom of the bottle, leaving about 1/2” between the hole and the cut edge, using a standard hole punch. I then crocheted into each hole three times, I just used the crochet hook that was recommended for my yarn (any scrap yarn you have will work). I single crocheted in the round until it measured about 4”. To finish it off I single crocheted one, chained one and skipped a stitch and repeated that all the way around. Then I just crochet a chain and laced it through the holes. (I am not a pattern writer! if you have any questions just leave me a comment and I'll do my best to help.) I love these things and they are so easy to make.****
