Look who’s invited to your next fall get-together? A Crochet Pumpkin Wine Cozy, of course!
There’s just something about this pumpkin wine cozy that makes me happy. Maybe it’s the tall elegance in that lovely, juicy orange color. Or perhaps how that tendril curls just a little. Or maybe it’s the cute little leaves or how the handles form the pumpkin stem.
As you probably figured, I have a thing for wine cozies these days. They are just so darn fun. And easy. I can make one in an evening and almost always out of scrap yarn. And any time I can dig in my stash and come up with something. Well, that’s the best, isn’t it?
Let’s get started on this beauty, shall we?
Crochet Pumpkin Wine Cozy Pattern
Here is what you will need:
- US J10/6.00 mm crochet hook. (Did you know you can purchase my go-to hooks on Amazon?)
- Orange Worsted weight, 2.75 oz, I used Vanna’s Choice in Terra Cotta
- Brown Worsted Weight, less than 1 oz, I used scrap yarn, Vanna’s Choice in Chocolate is a great choice
- Green Worsted Weight, less than 1 oz, I used scrap yarn, Vanna’s Choice in Olive is a great choice
- 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 orange 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:
R3-15: Ch 3 for 1st stitch, dc in remaining stitches (24 st) Sl st to 1st st. Change to brown color in joining slip stitch of last round.
R6-17: With Brown and using a double strand of yarn, Ch 3 for 1st stitch, dc in remaining stitches (24 st) Change to Brown color in joining slip stitch of last round.
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). Fasten off and weave in ends.
With Green and one strand of yarn, chain 45, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across. At end of row, do not fasten off, but make 2 leaves as follows:
*Chain 8 and join to form ring.
R1 in the ring just made work all of the following: ch 2, 6 dc, ch 3, sl st to 1st ch, 6 dc, ch 2, sl st.* One leaf made. Do NOT fasten off.
Repeat from * to * to make a 2nd leaf. Fasten off, leaving a long strand for sewing. Use the long strand to better attach the two leaves to the end of the tie, then weave in the end and fasten off. Weave in the end from the other side of the tie.
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, letting the side with no leaves gently curl naturally.
