Wine Bottle Crochet Wrap    004

This easy and quick bottle wrapper can be used for any type of liquor.   Really dresses up that bottle of wine and adds an extra touch to an otherwise outdated gift.

Made with worsted weight wool it is also affordable to create.

 

Materials:

Worsted weight yarn in two colors (I just happened to have Vanna’s Choice in the colors I wanted in the  house but Red Heart would work just as well)

5.5mm hook

Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

 

Abbreviations and Stitches used:

st- stitch

mc– magic circle/ring

ch– chain

sc– single crochet
insert hook, yarn over, pull through (two loops on hook), yarn over, pull through both loops

hdc– half double crochet-
yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull through (three loops on hook), yarn over, pull through all three loops

dc– double crochet
yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull through (three loops on hook), yarn over, pull through first two loops on hook, yarn over and pull through last two loops.

Dec 2 Tog– decrease two together- all done on sc in this application-
insert hook, yarn over, pull through, (two loops on hook), insert hook in next space, yarn over, pull through, (three loops on hook), yarn over, pull through all three loops

sl st– slip stitch
insert hook, yarn over, pull through, (two loops on hook), pull loop closest to hook through other loop

dccl- double crochet cluster-
begins like a regular dc stitch – yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull through, yarn over and pull through first two loops on hook, BUT THEN yarn over, insert hook back into same space, yarn over, pull through, yarn over and pull through all four loops on hook.

To cre8tion wine bottle wrap:

  1. Using both colors together- 10sc in mc
  2. [2sc] in every stich around <20>
  3. Sc in every st with 2sc in every other st <30>
  4. Sc in every st around <30>
    001    kinda looks like a peppermint candy
  5. Weave in tails of mc
  6. Dc around dec2tog in every 3rd st (work as much as you can, it will not work out perfectly even) join with sl st <23>
  7. Pull red (or color A) through white (or color B) and  pull tail of white tight so that only red is showing
