The Perfect Wine Koozie: Free Knit Pattern from a DGYer – Darn Good Yarn
June 9, 2013
Lauren, dear, you’re after my own heart. As many of you know, Lauren is a DGYer who loves making and sharing patterns with us, so here’s the latest installment of her genius. This little wine cozy will make a great hostess gift, and you could probably dress up any kind of bottle this size. This would be a great table setting item for a kid’s birthday party–just put juice or lemonade in a cute bottle (you can reuse an old wine bottle!) and set it out on the table and get approving glances from moms and dads all around!
Isn’t that adorable? And I love your yarn choice, Lauren! Now let’s get down to the pattern:
“1 Skein of Recycled Resolution Sari Silk Yarn
Size US 8 double pointed needles (dpns), set of 4
Row 35-36: Knit all
You’ll end up with 8 stitches. Thread the tail end through the remaining stitches and pull to close the bottom. Tie off on the inside of the koozie.
Now…. Place unopened wine bottle in koozie. Open bottle. Fill glass with wine. Drink wine while admiring your beautiful silk koozie.
There’s room for a few more rows if you want to use the whole skein. I just made it tall enough to cover the widest portion of the bottle.”
