Crisp leaves. Golden colors. Cool Days. Warm sweatshirts. Fall is in the air! I love the cool refreshing days of fall! And I love this fall wine cozy!
I thought it would be fun to re-visit this fall crochet wine cozy. This is the first of my series of wine cozies. You can see them all here! One of my favorite things about the fall crochet wine cozy is that I used up scrap yarn ~ which is always a good thing! I made this one for Thanksgiving but it’s great for any fall occasion (or change up the colors or even work it in a solid color–so many options!)
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Family, laughter and relaxation–the things I like best. My mom always makes Thanksgiving dinner and it is amazing. The turkey. The green bean casserole. The sweet potatoes. And the pies. Oh man..the pies. I’ve blessed with a mom who is the most amazing baker.
She researches and then perfects everything. She even likes to make sure everyone’s favorites are covered in the pies so sometimes we have more pies than people. I can live with that.
I usually make the mashed potatoes. And I have it so easy. My mom peels and cooks the potatoes and I just add the magic (which is evaporated milk and more real butter than is probably healthy). I also almost always bring wine. And this year, the wine will be arriving in this beautiful fall crochet wine cozy.
I’ve been kind of loving the cozies lately. You may remember the watermelon coffee cup cozy and then the candy corn cup cozy. And now this. The wine cozy. Here’s why I love it: It is easy. It fancies up a bottle of wine and can substitute for a gift bag if you decide to give it as a gift. And you can make it out of scrap yarn, so no extra money to make it. So if you have a free evening, pull out your scrap basket, grab a hook and let’s make this fall crochet wine cozy!
