This fast and easy crochet wine bag pattern is the answer for last minute gifts!
Every year I gift at least 5 people wine! Sometimes I feel a wee bit lazy and it seems like an easy out BUT now this year I am adding pretty crocheted wine bottle bag with it.
Originally I was thinking to make these crochet bottle bags out of worsted weight yarn but truth be told it would take me way too long to make them so I decided that super bulky was the answer because not only does this make them so much quicker to crochet but they also work up working two strands of worsted together giving even more options and making it a fantastic stash buster too!
The fun part about these crochet wine bottle cozies is they are great for carrying your wine around too! Because they are made from super bulky yarn the bags are quite thick adding a nice padding if you are throwing a bottle into your bag on your way out.
I added this appliqué I searched and searched my stash for the one I purchased a few years ago – gave up and went to Fabricland found this one for $1.30! An inexpensive finishing touch.

The band for the bag is worked in rows and attached as you go. Here is a simple video that will help with the construction of the ribbed band if needed.
Please work the slip stitches loosely. If they are worked too tight you will be making the opening of the bag smaller. Keep them loose for best results.

Use needle and long tail from tie work back and forth through pompom
