I'm relatively new. I know how to make a water bottle starting with a circle and extruding upwards while using a combo of extrude and scaling to make indents, but how would I do something like this? Thanks for your help!

To make the shape, use the Mirror, Array and Simple Deform (Bend mode) modifiers:

Create a plane, rotate it, apply the rotation, subdivie, mirror:

enter image description here

Array it 6 times, make it bend with a Simple Deform modifier (Bend mode)

enter image description here

Change its shape, extrude inwards:

enter image description here

enter image description here

Give it a Subdivision Surface modifier, add edge loops to sharp the edges:

enter image description here

As the medium part is divided by 4 and not 6, you're going to make it apart. Draw the curve with some extrusion, delete the faces to only keep the edges:

enter image description here

Create another plane, subdivide it so that it has the same number of edge loops as the bottom part (18 faces), use the previous shape to cut it with the Knife Project tool:

enter image description here

Now again, mirror, array and bend with a Simple Deform modifier:

enter image description here

Extrude inwards, add edge loops:

enter image description here

Merge with the bottom:

enter image description here

Correct the shape etc:

enter image description here

You probably need half the edges, you can simplify whenever you want:
