I made a ruffly bottle sleeve a few years ago and I love it! I use it all the time.
It works great to catch the little drips that run down the bottle and can leave a ring on the counter.
Since it works so well, I wanted to make more. I have some yarn left over sock yarn from my
Zion hat. It's the perfect color for catching drips of dark wine without worrying about stains.
So, I knitted one up. Then, my daughter liked it so much that she asked for one.
It was fun and quick and the colors are perfect for someone else I know.
So, I now have three...
I decided to leave the ruffle off of these.
I like how they look with their cute little stripes.
I used size one double point needles and cast on 32. I divided them onto four needles with eight stitches on each. Then, I simply did a knit three, purl one rib for about 26 rows or about two inches and bound off in the same rib stitching. I tucked in the ends and...voila...cute little wine socks!
I was a bit short on wine. So, I just HAD to buy a few bottles for the photo shoot! ;-)
