Free Crochet Pattern: Champagne Bottle

champagne_bottle_1

Happy New Year! I’ve been wanting to do something champagne-bottle themed for a long time. I’m gonna say right up front, that I don’t think a scarf made out of these champagne bottle motifs would be the greatest scarf, because the thin portion along the neck of the bottle would be a weak and stretchy point, also with a tendency to twist. HOWEVER, I could not help myself but try! I am running out of time this year to complete a full scarf, but these little bottles were so cute, that I wanted to share them with you anyway.

My buddy Candace pointed out that you could also make a cute garland out of this motif. And champagne isn’t just for NYE. You could make a scarf or garland for any kind of celebratory occasion, and you can put whatever words you like on the labels with surface crochet, felt letters, or puffy paint.

I fully intend to complete my scarf and shoot non-phone-cam pics. Until then, this pattern will be free on my blog. When I get the chance to convert it into an actual scarf pattern, I might pull it from here and add it to my Etsy shop. Not sure yet!

What ever your plans are tonight, stay safe and stay warm. I think 2017 is going to be a really weird year for me (maybe more on that later), but I hope for all of us to be happy and healthy. Cheers!

Assembly

  1. Due to the fact that we are using sc in rows, your Bottle will probably be curling. This is just a frustrating fact of life when using sc. I would suggest blocking your Bottles at this point before assembling it further. I’m using acrylic yarn, which can be difficult to block or you might melt it. Here’s another method. My friend Candace uses the blow-dryer method. So use your favorite blocking method or Google some and experiment!
  2. Arrange 2 Bands in an X-shape on the Bottle where the Gold top meets the Bottle Color. You can use pins here if you wish. Sew each Band to Bottle.
  3. Sew Wax Seal on top of the intersection of the Bands.
  4. Optionally, you can embroider, use surface crochet, or use fabric paint to put a word or short phrase on the label or white area of the Bottle.
