Crocheted Wine Bottle Bag

I've been making quite a few wine bottle cozies/bags lately and I thought other people might enjoy making them too.  Both of the wine bottle bags shown are crocheted with this same pattern but in different yarns.  Experiment with your favorite bulky yarns.  I'd love to see pictures if you make this yourself.

You'll need:
  • Approx. 2 oz bulky weight yarn.  The orangish red one is made with Bernat Softee Chunky in "Rouge" and the purple one is made with Lion Brand Homespun in "Baroque".
  • Size K crochet hook.
Gauge isn't real important for this project, but you'll want to crochet loosely with the bulky yarn.  If you tend to crochet tighter you may want to use a larger hook.

The base of the bag measures approximately 3 1/2" in diameter, and it's approximately 12 1/2" tall.  It will fit most 750ml wine bottles and champagne bottles.

If you really like these but don't want to make them yourself, I have the finished wine bottle bags in my Etsy shop.  Love this but want it made in another color?  I welcome custom orders.  Please contact me and I'll be happy to work with you to make something beautiful for you.

Round 1: Ch 4, 11 dc in 4th ch from hook. (The first 3 skipped chs count as a dc.)  Join with sl st to top ch of 1st 3 chs. (12 dc)
Round 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in each st.  Join with sl st to top of ch3. (24 dc)
Round 3: Ch 3, dc in each st.  Join with sl st to top of ch3. (24 dc)
Rounds 4-18: Repeat round 3.
Fasten off.  Weave in ends.

Tie: Ch 70.  Fasten off.

Finishing: Weave tie through stitches in round 15.
