Floral Wine Cosy 2

Pin It 
Happy Birthday to someone special ..

Once you start making wine cosies and realise just how easy and effective they are, the possibilities for creativity are endless.

Here is the latest cosy from FitzBirch craft.  Ideal for that special someone in your life.

This cosy was knitted using a very old stash of Patons Bluebell in Creme (M), Light Pink (C1) and Dark Pink (C2).

Pattern Instructions:-


Using DPN's size 4 and M (Creme) cast on 48 stitches.
Establish a K2, P2 rib and continue for 7cm.

In you final row of ribbing, increase between each set of K2's.  This will increase your stitches to 60.  It is important for the gingham pattern that the stitches be in multiple of 3's.

Continue in stocking stitch using M for 2 cm.

Gingham Pattern:
Using M K3, Using C1 (light Pink) K3.  Continue to end.
Repeat this row 2 more times (3 rows in total)

Next row - Using C1, K3, Using C2 (dark Pink) K3.  Continue to end.
Repeat this row 2 more time (3 rows in total)

Next row -
Using M K3, Using C1 (light Pink) K3.  Continue to end.
Repeat this row 2 more times (3 rows in total)

Continue in M and stocking stitch until you are approximately 6cm from the bottom of the bottle.

Repeat the Gingham pattern once more.

Continue in M and stocking stitch until you are approximately 1 cm from the bottom of the bottle.

Decrease 1 stitch at each end of each needle for every row until 4 stitches remain on each needle. 

Cut wool leaving a 10cm tail and using a wool needle, thread back through the stitches and pull firmly.  Secure tail.

Attach your crocheted flowers and your gift is ready to go.
