This cozy pattern is fairly simple and works up quickly making it the perfect piece to make for those fall markets. It’s also quite versatile and can be made to fit most any size glass, bottle or can!

- I Love This Cotton or your favorite worsted weight cotton
- G6 (4.5mm) crochet hook
- Tapestry needle (for sewing in ends)
- Your favorite wine glass!
Beginner. This pattern uses beginner friendly stitches. I have included photo tutorials for specific stitches/techniques throughout the pattern.
- This pattern is written in standard US crochet terms.
- This pattern in worked in the round.
- The chain one (or chain two) at the beginning of each round does not count as a stitch.
- This pattern is written to fit a standard red wine glass, however, it is so versatile! You can use practically any size wine glass (or beer can). Just increase or decrease the number of stitches in any even number, add as many rows as you need and you are good to go 🙂
Stitches used and abbreviations:
- ch = chain
- sp = space
- st/sts = stitch/stitches
- sl st = slip stitch
- sc = single crochet
- dc = double crochet
- tr = treble crochet
- fpdc = front post double crochet
- bpdc = back post double crochet
- fpdc: you will work your double crochet as normal. However, you will be working around the post of the stitch in the previous row rather than through the top loops. Insert your hook from the right side of your work and make a dc around the stitch from the previous row.
- bpdc: the same as the fpdc, but you will insert your hook from the wrong side of your work, and make your dc around the back of the stitch from the previous row.
*You will need a main color (MC) and contrasting color (CC) for the vine/leaf.
To adjust the size of the cozy, you can increase/decrease the number of stitches in increments of 2. Add (or take away) as many rows as needed for your favorite glass!
Make sure you leave a tail long enough for cinching the bottom later. Ch 36, join to first ch being careful not to twist it. Ch 2, turn.
Round 1: Using your MC, dc in first ch and in each ch around. Join to first st with sl st, ch 1. (36 dc)
Round 2: fpdc around first st, bpdc around the next 2 sts, [fpdc around next st, bpdc around the next 2 sts] repeat from [ to ] around. Join to first st with sl st, ch 1. (36 dc)
Rounds 3 – 8: Repeat round 2. (36 dc) Add more rows if needed depending on your glass/container.
Round 9: sc in first st and in each st around. Join to first st with sl st. Ch 1 (36 sc)
Round 10: attach your CC, sl st in first st and in each st around. Join to first st with sl st. Do not fasten off. You will continue to make the vine and leaf. (36 sl sts)
Making the vine and leaf (refer to the photos on the below)
Step 1: ch 15, 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next ch, [2 sc in next ch, 1 sc in next ch] all the way down. Sl st to the st on the left of where you started the chain. Do not fasten off.
Step 2: ch 4, sl st to same st. ch 1, turn.
Step 3: In ch 4 sp, you will: 3 dc, tr, ch 3, sl st to 3rd ch from hook, tr, 3 dc, sl st to same st as ch 4. Fasten off and weave in ends.
To cinch the bottom of the cozy to fit your wine glass:
Thread a tapestry needle with the tail. Weave your needle in and out of the bottom stitches all the way around. Slip the cozy on your wine glass, and pull the tail to close the opening until it is where you want it. Make sure you don’t close it so much that you can’t take it off the base. Secure it, and weave in the rest of the tail.
*For beer cans or any other straight container, you will not need to cinch the bottom.
