Wine Bottle Bag
JULY 23, 2018
For my third rainy day project, I decided to make a wine bottle bag. I had a lot of fun picking out the colors and designing this. It's quick and easy to make! I think this bag with a bottle of wine would make such a thoughtful (I mean, it's handmade!) gift for a friend. It would be perfect as a hostess or housewarming gift. I hope you like it, too!
Rainy Day Project #3:
Wine Bottle Bag
My wine bottle bag ended up being 12" (including the handles) and the base has a circumference of 2.5 ". You can easily adapt this pattern to fit any size wine bottle.
Instructions between two asterisks should be repeated for the remainder of the round.
Rnd 1: magic ring, ch 2, 11 hdc, join with sl st in top of first hdc 
Rnd 2: ch 2, 2 hdc in same st, 2 hdc in each rem st, join 
Rnd 3: ch 2, 2 hdc in same st, hdc in next st, *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st*, join 
Rnd 4: ch 2, 2 hdc in same st, hdc in next 2 sts, *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 2 sts*, join 
-----my circle base measured 2.5" at this point. If you need your base to be larger, make another round (*2hdc, hdc in 3*)-----
switch to dark purple yarn
Rnd 5: ch 2, hdc in the same st, *ch 1, skip the next st, hdc in the next st*, join [your sts & ch spaces should equal 44]
Rnds 6- 32: ch 2, in each ch 1 space from the previous round you'll make a hdc and make a ch 1 and skip over the hdc's from the previous round. If you want your color changes to match mine, switch to light purple at the beginning of round 17 and switch to white at the beginning of round 30.
-----the length of my bag measured 7.75" after round 32. If you need yours to be longer, add a few more rows before beginning the pattern for the handles-----
Rnd 33: ch 1, sc in each st and each ch space, join 
Rnd 34: ch 1, sc in 7 sts, ch 30, skip over 7 sts and sc in the next st 15 sts, ch 30, skip over 7 sts and sc in the rem 8 sts, join (the ch's are your handles)
Note: I was able to carry a bottle in the bag with no problem but my husband mentioned that he would need longer handles to fit his fingers- you might want to consider making a ch of 40 instead of 30 if you want the handles to be longer.
Ignore the locations of my stitch markers in the photos.
Rnd 35: sl st in 7 sts, sc in each of the 30 chs, sl st in 15 sts, sc in each of the 30 chs, sl st in the rem 8 sts, join and fasten off.
You are done! Now you can enjoy your new wine bag for yourself or gift it to a friend. I hope you like my pattern. Please tag me on Instagram lovable_loops if you make your own!
