Thick and bulky yarn creates a great cushion to protect the glass from breaking too during transport. Happy summer friends!

- 10.0 mm P crochet hook
- Super bulky yarn of your choice (I used Hoooked Ribbon XL in the “Crazy Plum” and “Happy Mint” colorways. I used less than half a ball per color of each yarn for the tote)
- Tapestry Needle
- Tape Measure
(Note: this tote is fitted for a standard size 12 inch tall wine bottle)
- 14 inches tall
- 10.5 inch circumference
- Circular base is 3.5 inches wide
Ch 4, join in the furthest ch from the hook to make a ring.
Round 1: Ch 3, then work 11 dc into the center of the ring. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 2: Ch 3, then work 2 dc into each st around. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 3: Ch 3, the work a bpdc (back post double crochet) in each st around. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 4: Ch 2, the work a hdc in each st around. Join to close round with a sl st.
Repeat round 4 until the sides come up just to the top of the wine bottle when placed inside the tote.
Instructions for the handles:
Before you begin, place stitch markers where you want the handles. Be sure they are evenly placed. I did mine so that there are three stitches between each marker, but if you’d like a different sized handle
Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as a hdc), then work a hdc into the first stitch, then a hdc into the next stitch. Ch 3 and skip the next three stitches, then work a hdc into the next stitch and into each of the next two stitches. Ch 3 and skip the next three stitches, then work a hdc into the next stitch and into each of the next two stitches. Work a slip stitch into the topmost chain to complete the round.
Round 2: Ch 2, then work a hdc into each stitch until you come to the first handle. Next work 3 hdc into the handle space. Work a hdc into each of the next three hdc stitches. Work 3 hdc into the next handle space, then a hdc into each of the remaining stitches. Join with a slip stitch to close the round.
Weave in any ends that remain and you’re finished!
