This is tutorial about how to Crochet bottle/tumbler holder, mixed with Tunisian Crochet for the handle.
Tunisian (or Afghan) Crochet makes a beautiful and squishy texture. I used Tunisian Crochet to make the handle.
In this video tutorial, I am using Stylecraft Special DK yarn & Boye Crochet Hook G-6/4.25 mm. You can use smaller or bigger hook depending on your yarn.

Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK

Round 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in each st, connect with sl st [total 24 sts].
Round 3: Ch 3, (dc, 2 dc) repeat around, connect with sl st [total 36 sts].
Round 4: Ch 4, (skip 1 st, dc in the next st, ch 1) repeat around. Ch 1, slip stitch to the first loop, slip stitch to the middle top of loop (so we will start the next Round from the middle of the loop).
Repeat Round 4 to desired length.
Do not cut the yarn, continue making the handle using Tunisian Crochet Knit Stitch.
(Remember that in Tunisian crochet, right side of your work is always facing you. You will go back and forth on your work and NEVER TURN.)
Step 1: Sl st. Ch 1, pull up a loop in each loop, until there are 6 loops on hook.
Step 2: Going left to right. Pull through first loop. Yarn over (yo) and pull through two loops, continue until there is only one loop left on the hook.
(The foundation row completed.)
Step 3: (Pull up a loop THROUGH the vertical bar) repeat. Total 6 loops on hook.
Step 4: Going left to right. Yo, pull through first loop. Next, yo and pull through two loops, continue until there is only one loop left on the hook.
Repeat Step 3 & 4 to desired length.
Cut the yarn, leaving 5 inches tail. Sew the handle, fasten off and cut the yarn.
