Nothing quite says summer like a big juicy bite into a sweet, red, ripe watermelon. The juicy goodness fills your mouth and rolls down your chin. For a moment, you are lost. Eyes closed. The summer sun warms your skin. A deep breath in. An exhale and some of that everyday stress just drifts away as the sweet deliciousness of it all just fills you to your toes. Sigh. And then.. this deliciously sweet crochet wine bottle cover. Can you even?! That pink bit of goodness and those tiny buttons? Sigh. I’m in love. If you’ve been here awhile you know I have a thing for crochet wine cozy patterns. They’re quick. They’re easy. They make a great gift. And they turn a celebration with family and friends into something just a little more special. And this sweet watermelon crochet wine bottle cover pattern might just be my new favorite.
She’s the queen of scrap yarn. All my wine cozy patterns are worked holding 2 strands of yarn together for a super fast project. Pick out your favorite pink or red, a coordinating green and white yarn from your stash. Wind up a 2nd ball from the skein (I really like this ball winder) and you are good to go!
