A santa wine cozy. Sigh. Festive yet understated. This cutie would make a perfect gift or a fun way to tote wine to a party!In our family, we celebrate Saint Nicholas Day on December 6. On the night before, we leave our shoes out and in the morning, they are filled with small toys and treats! Sort of like Christmas stockings.. but with shoes.. and on December 6th, which is the feast day for the saint.
And if you’re like our family, you do the stocking tradition too. Because who doesn’t like small things filled with presents, right? So today is the perfect day to debut this Santa Wine Cozy Pattern!
Wine cozies might be my latest favorite thing. They work up crazy fast and they dress up an ordinary bottle of wine into something really special. If you are looking for an easy, yet great gift, meet your new best friend: The Santa Wine Cozy
Just like the Snowman Wine Cozy and the Fall Wine cozy, this is a one evening (or less) project. It is worked in a similar way, with 2 strands of yarn held together. Easy Peasy.

These patterns are just too adorable! I do have one question …or comment. For the belt buckle, did you mean 3 hdc in the next ch? I have your original post below and I have capitalized the area which I’m talking about.
R2: ch2, hdc in next 2 ch, 3 hdc in next ch, *hdc in next 3ch, HDC IN NEXT CH. Repeat from * 2 more times. Sl st to 1st st. Fasten off. Center buckle over black belt and sew down
Thanks for the nice complements on my patterns! And thanks for catching my typo! Yes, it should be 3hdc for the corner parts of the belt. I corrected the post. I was having trouble with my software autocorrecting every time I typed “hdc” and I must have deleted the “3” when I was fixing every single HDC in the post! LOL!
Lol that is quite alright. I made both the Santa and the snowman one but I add a little something else to the Santa one. I’m going to be putting it on my blog soon because it was so easy and they’re so cute. I almost wish I like wine just so I could use them lol.
I can’t wait to see! If you are on Instagram, be sure to post and tag me! I’d love to see your blog posts too! Be sure to link to this page so your readers can get the full pattern here! I’m so glad you are enjoying them. They also fit other liquor bottles and I bet you could find an olive oil bottle that would fit too!
