It’s almost the holiday season!  If you’re like me, you always arrive at get-togethers with a bottle of wine for the host.  Why not dress up the bottle with a super fast (and cute!) handknit scarf?  It’s a great way to use up those tiny quantities of luxury stash yarn you’ve been saving, and putting little clothes on random objects is always fun.  Best of all, you can knit one up from start to finish in the time it takes to watch a movie.


DIY- Handknit wine bottle scarf

What you’ll need:

  • 1 skein worsted weight yarn
  • Size 8 knitting needles
  • Tapestry needle or crochet hook


Gauge is not critical for this project.

Seed stitch Pattern (over an odd number of stitches):

RS: K1, P1
WS: K1, P1


Cast on 125 stitches using the backward loop method.  Knit in seed stitch for 5 rows. Bind off in pattern.  Weave in ends.  That’s it!  Block.  Or not.  Seed stitch hides a multitude of sins.

Choose a cute way to tie your scarf on to the wine bottle and you’re done.
