Wine Bottle Mini Coozie / by Riane Menardi

Last week, I got really obsessed with making t-shirt yarn out of old, need-to-be-upcycled duds. I also got sort of obsessed with these t-shirt yarn bowls by Francine Clouden on Kollabora. This is the result.

Make one of these wine bottle coozies, and you'll never worry about drippy wine again. They're easy to make, and they can be used as bowls, can coozies or other things as well. I was making a batch of bowls when my roommate mentioned that we could use one as a wine bottle coozie to prevent drips on our new, white countertop. Perfect!

Ch = chain
Sc = single crochet

  • 1/2 skein of t-shirt yarn (bulky weight equivalent)
  • 9 mm crochet hook (size N)

Have you ever made bowls out of t-shirt yarn? I find that they're very sturdy ā€” and the yarn is super fun to work with.
