Crochet Sunflower Wine Cozy

There’s something special about an August Summer Day.  The leaves are lush and green.  The garden is overflowing with deliciousness. The sun warms the air and I feel just like a contented cat, stretching in the sunshine, soaking up all the last bit of summer goodness. And that’s kind of how I feel about this beautiful, yet simple sunflower wine cozy.Crochet Sunflower Wine Cozy PatternMy mom is a summer baby and her birthday has always been a special time full of summer memories with family.  This year seemed even more precious for some reason.  Probably because we lost the last of John’s parents this past year.  And I realize how life is just so fleeting.  An ebb and flow of beginnings and endings.  You really have to savor the moments you have with the ones you hold dear.

And so I ended up with a hodge podge of unrelated birthday gifts for my mother this year.  This lovely sunflower wine cozy and a bottle of wine.  The Seed Stitch Dishcloth. A big fat jar of unfiltered honey from the Farmer’s Market.  And a few other odds and ends.

We couldn’t quite coordinate all the family at once for our usual out-to-dinner celebration.  So mom was perfectly happy being celebrated twice!  So I took my bag of gifts and she was just delighted with everything. My mom is very gracious and can make you feel like you’ve given her the world when you’ve made something special just for her.

Maybe you’d like to make this sunflower wine cozy for someone you love.  As you can probably tell, the wine cozies are some of my favorite things to make.  It all started with the Fall Wine Cozy, then came the Snowman wine cozy and two more Christmas cozies here and here.  And I almost forgot the Football wine cozy and Flag wine cozy!  They are just too much fun to make.  They look good when they are done and they make for a nice gift!

If you haven’t made a wine cozy yet, you should give it a try; you just might get hooked!

Wine Cozy:

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 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), 1 dc 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:

R3-17: Ch 3 for 1st stitch, dc in remaining stitches (24 st)  Sl st to 1st st.

R18:  Ch 1, 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).  Fasten off and weave in ends.

R2: ch 1, work 2 sc in each stitch in round, sl st to 1stst.  Fasten off brown (12 sts)

  1. For round 3 of the sunflowers;
    R3: Attach yellow with a slip stitch to any stitch. *In the same stitch, work (ch 2, dc, ch 3, sl st in 1stch, dc, ch 2, sl st), sl st to next stitch. Repeat from * around to form 12 petals. Fasten

    After the chain 3, which stitch is the 1stch that you sl st? The first chain of the ch 2 before the dc or the first chain of the ch 3?


    1. The slip stitch is referencing the chain 3 you just did. So the slip stitch forms a little picot loop on the chain 3 you just did (you slip stitch to the 1st chain that ch 3 sequence). I hope that makes sense.

  2. I LOVE this pattern! My sister in Wisconsin told me about getting “wined” during the pandemic so I started doing that here in Missouri. I ran out of gift bags so I made this using yarn I had in the house – so no need to go out shopping! My friend loved getting surprised with a bottle of wine on her doorstep and absolutely loved the carrier I made. I am going to start with your pattern today but add butterflies for another friend. I can’t wait to see how nice it will look!!! Thanks for sharing this.

    1. So I LOVE the concept of getting “wined” during the pandemic. That’s awesome! Also.. I’ve been thinking of another wine cozy design … maybe my crochet butterflies would look amazing on one! I’ll have to check the size of them together and see if that would work… See.. now you’ve given ME an idea! LOL

  3. Just finished this wine cozy. so cute! I was wondering whether i could glue gun the sunflowers on instead of sewing. It took a while. thanks for the pattern

    1. Hot glue sometimes leaves a hard spot you can feel and it’s possible it would be visible between the stitches. I would recommend a clear drying fabric glue if going that route, but sewing the flower on with a few stitches will give the best result.

  4. Hi Cheryl, thank you so much for the wine cozy free patterns. There are just so lovely n pretty n easy to do. I have been making these bags to sell n raise funds for my underprivileged homes in Malaysia. Just want to appreciate you n write n thank you note. You are so talented. Love love love all the designs
