Summer Picnic Wine Tote, Free Crochet Pattern + Video


The Summer Picnic Wine Tote is a fun, quick and super cute little bag for a favorite bottle of wine!  Make one to accompany a gift, or use it for your next outdoor dining adventure!  Thick and bulky yarn creates a great cushion to protect the glass from breaking too during transport.  Happy summer friends!

Materials:
  • 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
  • Scissors
  • Tape Measure

Sizing:

(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


Instructions for the main part of the tote:

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!

  1. The first 2 rows seem to give a count of 24. I’m almost at the end and the final row seems to have a stitch count of 12 - wondering if I’ve misread? Thank you for the pattern. First time working with ribbon.
