Crimson Wine Bottle Sleeve

Free Pattern: Crimson Wine Bottle Sleeve
I''m spreading a lot of the bottled love this year, even my moodiest relatives are tolerable after a glass or two (for them or me, doesn''t matter!). This sleeve looks good on any bottle, but I think it looks better on the straight bottles, optional instructions* are included for a more tapered look.

US #7 double point needles
1 skein Patons SWS (Soy Wool Stripes) in Natural Crimson
Stitch Marker
Row Counter
Yarn Needle

5 sts X 6 rows = 1"

Cast on 36 stitches, join to begin knitting in the round (place marker after you knit the first stitch to mark the beginning of the round) and knit for 14 rounds.

Next round, purl all stitches (round 15). *Optional row for tapered look - instead of purling all stitches, *yo, p2tog* around.

Next begin knitting for 8 rounds, and purl the 9th round (round 24). Repeat these 9 rows 7 more times (purl rounds 33, 42, 51, 60, 69, 78, 87).

After the last repeat you should have 9 purled rounds. Knit 2 more rows and begin decreases as follows.

Decrease rounds:
1 - K 2, K2tog
2 - Knit
3 - Knit
4 - K 1, K2tog
5 - Knit
6 - K2tog

Cut yarn and tread through remaining stitches on needles, pull tight and weave in ends. *For tapered sleeve, cut a piece of yarn 3-4 yards long, fold in half and twist until yarn twistis wen slackened, fold in half again and let yarn twist on itself. Tie ends into knots and trim ends. Thread through holes in cozy and tie in a bow.

Tips: has great tips on cast on methods and knitting in the round.

This pattern is free for personal use only. Please do not use for profit unless all proceeds go to charity.

About Me

I''m a mother of 2 (3 if you count the dog), and a knitting addict. I like trying new patterns, unfortunately I don''t always have enough time.

Yarn Choices

The majority of my projects are done using Red Heart yarns. Where I live there is only one speciality store close by, and since they''re only open certain hours on certain days, I don''t get to stop by much. If I want to do something nice as a present, I usually have to order what I want online.
You can substitute any yarn you like, just make sure you check your gauge!!! Changing your needle size to suit will allow you to use just about any yarn you want.

My Opinion

I think patterns are not rule books, but guides to help knitters create something special for a family member, a friend, or for themselves. The patterns I have posted are a few things I''ve done without consulting a ''pattern''. As you can see, I like mindless knitting. If you want something with a little ''oomph'', change the colors, add stripes, double strand, add an edge, your choices are endless so make it your own. Whatever you do, enjoy it! I hope you get a little inspiration from what you see, and create something special for someone you love! Who doesn''t love getting a gift?! For those of you who don''t like what you see, just click the little ''X'' at the top of the window. You don''t have to be here!
