Oh my goodness, I’m in love. This might be my favorite Christmas creation yet! This crochet snowman wine cozy is so cute, yet modern and classy. It is also very easy and fast to make. With this bit of adorableness who even cares what kind of wine it holds! If I can bear to part with it (which I can’t) it will be the perfect gift for my boss (don’t tell). On second thought, I think I will make another one because seeing this guy on display just makes me incredibly happy and I can’t give him up.
This is a one evening (or less) project, my friends. I’m not kidding. With this kind of easy you can whip up one for almost everyone you know and just change out the colors a bit. Christmas. Done. Then you can get back to Pinterest and Instagram (and follow me once you’re there, ok?) or whatever other bit of goodness you enjoy.

Crochet Snowman Wine Cozy Pattern
Here is what you will need:
- Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice worsted weight yarn: White and Scarlet. Scrap of Terra Cotta (I used leftover yarn from the small crochet pumpkin project.)
- US J10/6.00 mm crochet hook. (Did you know you can purchase my go-to hooks on Amazon?)
- Buttons for eyes and nose. I used Hobby Lobby’s Sewology brand buttons: (2) 11/16″ black buttons and (3) patterned red buttons (also about 5/8″) that came in a multi size pack. Buttons that are 1/2″ to 3/4″ will work just fine.
- tapestry needle and scissors

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.
R1: Using 2 strands of White color yarn, make a magic ring, chain 3 (counts as 1st dc) 11 dc in ring (12 dc total). Sl St to 1st st.
R2: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc here and throughout), 1dc in same st as joining, 2 dc in each of the remaining stitches. Sl st to 1st st. (24 st)
Now work in even dc:
R3-12: Ch 3 for 1st stitch, dc in remaining stitches (24 st) Sl st to 1st st. Change to Scarlet color in joining slip stitch of last round.
R13: With Scarlet and using a double strand of yarn, Ch 3 for 1st stitch, dc in remaining stitches (24 st) Sl st to 1st st.
R14: Continuing with Scarlet, Ch 3 for 1st stitch, then, working in the back loop, this round only, dc in remaining stitches (24 st) Sl st to 1st st.
R15-17: Continuing with Scarlet, working in both loops, ch 3 for 1st stitch, dc in remaining stitches (24 st) Sl st to 1st st.
R18: Ch1, sc in same st as joining and next 2 st, ch 14, skip 7 st, sc in next 5 st, ch 14, skip 7 st, sc in last 2 st. Sl st to 1st st.
R19: ch 1, sc in same st as joining and next 2 st, sc 16 in ch-14 loop from the previous row, sc in next 5 st, sc 16 in ch-14 loop, sc in next 2 st. Sl st to joining. (42 st)
R20: ch 1, sc in same st as joining and around row. (42 st)
Using 2 strands of yarn, and holding wine cozy upside down (with the handle loops down), attach Scarlet yarn to the free loop of any stitch in round 14. Chain 4 (counts as 1st st), triple crochet in each stitch around. Join with sl st to 1st stitch and fasten off. Weave in ends.
The tie, scarf and nose and nose are worked with 1 strand of yarn as follows:
With White, chain 85, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across. Fasten off and weave in ends. Weave tie over and under 2 dc around row 16 and tie into a bow.
With Red, chain 85, dc in 3rd chain from hook and in each chain across. Fasten off, weave in ends.
With orange yarn, chain 5, sl st in 2nd chain from hook, sc in next ch, hdc in next ch, dc in last ch. Fasten off. Use starting and ending strands of yarn to sew to face over row 10 in between button eyes. (I sewed the button eyes on first and then attached the nose afterward.)
Sew on buttons for eyes and snowman front. The black button eyes go on round 11. The red buttons are evenly spaced starting on rows 4 and ending on 7. Put a bottle of wine in the cozy, tie up the top and wrap his cute little scarf around his neck and you are good to go!
