Basket Weave Wine Bottle Cozy


Anyone who knows me knows that I love me some red wine--Cabernet Sauvignon to be exact.  At the end of the day I have a glass to unwind and relax.  Watching two kids all day can get hectic, and I so look forward to my wine to indulge myself a bit.

I had been looking at a bottle of wine the other day and kept thinking that crocheting something to cover it would be much cuter than a paper wine bag when gifting it to someone.  I then kept thinking about how crocheting something to cover the bottle would actually make it a really cute decorative piece.  Either way, I was bound and determined to find a way to combine a couple of my two favorites: Crocheting and Wine.  Thus, I created this:



How cute would that be to give someone a bottle with your own personal touch to it?  Or, how about seeing that baby on a shelf in your house, so it looks cute until you decide to drink it?    This pattern should fit most wine bottles, but it is easy to tweak and change sizes.
