Simple Wine Tote Crochet Pattern
This Simple Wine Tote makes a really pretty gift, yet it’s easy enough for beginners since it uses just basic stitches. As long as you can chain, slip stitch, and single crochet – you’re good to go.
The drawstring gives it the versatility to fit different-shaped wine bottles. Some wine bottles have long necks, some have shorter necks. Either way, the drawstring cinches up nicely giving it the perfect fit, no matter the shape of the bottle.

STITCHES USED AND ABBREVIATIONS:
- yo = yarn over
- sp = space
- ch = chain
- st/sts = stitch/stitches
- sl st = slip stitch
- sc = single crochet
GAUGE: 4″ square = 16 hdc and 11 rows
Round 1: make a magic circle and make 8 sc in circle, join with a sl st to first st, ch 1. (8 sc)
Round 2: 2 sc in first st and in each st around, join with a sl st to first st, ch 1. (16 sc)
Round 3: 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next st, [2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next st], repeat from [ to ] around, join with a sl st to first st, ch 1. (24 sc)
Round 4: 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in each of next 2 sts, [2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 2 sts], repeat from [ to ] around, join with a sl st to first st. (32 sc)
Round 5: 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in each of next 3 sts, [2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 3 sts], repeat from [ to ] around, join with a sl st to first st, ch 1. (40 sc)
Round 6: sc in first st and in each st around, join with a sl st to first st, ch 1. (40 sc)
Rounds 7-14: repeat Round 6. (40 sc)
Round 15: ch 3, sk 2 sts, sl st to next st, [ch 3, sk 2 sts, sl st to next st,] repeat from [ to ] around. For the last one, ch 3 and sl st to first ch 3 of that round. Instead of joining, you will continue working in the round. (14 ch 3 sp)
Round 16: [ch 3, sl st to next ch 3 sp], repeat from [ to ] around. Continue in the round like this until your tote reaches approx. 7″ unstretched. You can also try it on your wine bottle. Since wine bottle necks vary in height, I stop when it reaches just slightly higher than the base of the neck when stretched out.
Last round: make sure you have joined the last ch 3 to the next ch 3 sp. Ch 1, 3 sc in same ch 3 sp and in each ch 3 sp around. (42 sc) Fasten off and weave in ends.
MAKING THE DRAWSTRINGS:
Making sure to leave a tail (about 6″-7″), ch 48, sl st in 2 ch from hook and in each ch across. (47 sl sts.) before you fasten off, make sure to leave a tail long the same length as the first tail. You will use these to thread the beads on.
Take one drawstring and weave in it and out of 8 of the ch 3 spaces. Flip the tote over and do the same on the other side with the other draw string. Both drawstrings will share a ch 3 sp on each end.
Cut 2 pieces of yarn about 10″ each. Thread each piece through the end of each drawstring (that doesn’t have tails already).
If your tapestry needle is big enough, you can thread all 4 ends through at once. If not, you will have to thread them on separately. But you will need to have all four ends through your needle. Pick up a bead and thread it on. Push it up as far as it will go. Double knot the yarn to secure it and trim the ends.
