Water Bottle Tag Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

We are all trying to drink more water
 and less other "stuff".
Me too!
I Carry my water bottle everywhere,
 plus my dogs always
 need a drink about half way
 through our walks.
I take my water bottle to the gym, 
and  I am always leaving it on one of the machines
 or in a locker. I go back for it and it is gone.
So I decided to make a tag to put on my bottle.
I designed it in the shape of a 
drop of water.
I thought that was a pretty cool idea.
I put an "S" on it, 
although it sort of looks like a "5".
I don't mind.
I used an F Crochet hook and 
some bonbon yarns I had left.
But A Worsted Weight (4) 
Would also work just fine.
I realize This will not keep people from
 "stealing" my water bottle, 
But maybe they will think twice about it.  
Or maybe turn it into the 
Lost and found at the gym.
