It's always a nice gesture to take a bottle of something -- wine, olive oil, what have you -- when you're staying at someone's house or have been invited to dinner or a party. But the trouble with such a gift is that it's gone as soon as the bottle is empty.
To give an easy gift that's a little more lasting, knit up a quick Chic Wine Bottle Cozy.
Worked in the round from the bottom up, this is a one-skein, one-evening project that's made more interesting because the yarn -- Red Heart Boutique Chic -- has pompoms built right in, so you can knit and embellish in one step.
Because the yarn is super bulky chenille, it also protects whatever bottle you're gifting a little bit, too. Isn't that nice?
