If you know me you know that I love wine. My friend Sarah found this pattern for me from one of my favorite knitting sites, I could not help but make it.
The patter is really straight forward with the only goofyness occuring at the base of where the bottle will be. I had to make a ridge by knitting a purl bump from six rows back into the current purl I was working on. It turned out ok but I would suggest marking the sixth row back using a washable marker or something because I had to keep counting to keep it uniform.
I still have not decided how to finish the cozy yet, as it is a little bland in just the tan color. I am thinking about sewing on different colored buttons that I have. Either that or to embroider flowers out of yarn remnants.
A special thanks to Pooh again on assisting me.
