Some days I feel like a pretty good wife. I say the nice things. Make good food. Do the laundry and make sure the house is clean. Other times I feel like I’m hanging on by a thread and crazy words are coming from my mouth because I’m stressed and tired, doing too many things at once.
In those moments, I wonder why in the world this love of mine sticks around. But he does. He’s here for the highs and the lows and the sometimes crazy. He holds my hand. Calms my heart. Tells me we’re a team and it will be ok.
And how do you possibly buy something to show someone you love them that much right back? Sure you can buy candy. Maybe some expensive thing.
But in my world, you make something amazing like this crochet bottle cover. And then you print out these little coupons for gifts of your time. You don’t need to spend a lot to show love. Sometimes you just need to DO. And maybe that’s the best gift of all.

Resources and tutorials you may find helpful in following this pattern: Crochet Abbreviations, US to UK Crochet Conversion Chart. Find links to stitches on the “Tutorial” menu: Getting Started will show basic stitches used in many patterns and Crochet Stitch Dictionary shows our growing collection of crochet stitch tutorials. I really like to use the invisible seamless join when finishing pieces that get sewn together.

Wine cozy is worked using 2 strands of yarn. So either pull a strand from the outside and inside of the yarn skein or wind a small ball to use as your 2nd strand.

Hearts (Make 5)
Using smaller hook and red, pink and white yarn make a total of 5 hearts (I made one white and two each of red and pink) as follows:
Make a magic ring. Work the following all inside the magic ring: ch2, 2 tc, 5 dc, tc, 5 dc, 2 tc, ch 2, sl st to magic ring. Carefully pull the ring tight. The stitches will form a heart shape. Fasten off and use ends to sew on to tie in the next step.
Starting at the left front as you are looking at the cozy, weave tie over and under 2 dc around row 16 and tie loosely. Carefully sew hearts on to ends of each tie and up the tie, referring to the photo for reference. Slip the crochet bottle cover on to a bottle of wine and carefully tighten up the tie.
