My friend Shayla gave me the idea of a crocheted wine glass lanyard. Then Amy had the fantastic idea of using this instead to hold a baby bottle. In case you drop it, the bottle won’t land on the floor. Such a great idea! 😀 I think I’ll start putting one of these in my baby shower gift baskets from now on.
For both uses. 😛
I love my red wine and you know I love me some crochet too. If you find any discrepancies please let me know so I can correct it. You are free to sell any item you make from the pattern but please do not claim it as your own, and if you post about this pattern please link back. Thank you!
Print the PDF pattern and add to your Ravelry queue. 😀
***Note that you are working in a spiral for most (the last part) of the pattern – NOT in the round and joining.
Round 1: Ch-18. sl st to first ch to form a circle. Be careful not to twist ch.
Round 2: *Ch-4, sk next 2 sts, sc in next ch*. Repeat to last 3 st and end with a sl st to join.
Round 3: *Ch-3, (sc, ch-3, sc) around the ch-4 space from the previous row* Repeat around and DO NOT JOIN
Round 4 and beyond: working in a spiral and NOT joining after each round
*Ch-3, sc once around the ch-3 sp from the previous row*. Repeat until desired height is reached. (I did about 4″). DO NOT FASTEN OFF.
For strap, you may either:
a.) ch the whole strap, attaching with a sc to the opposite side of work (gold pictured above). Finish off and weave in ends.
b.) make a thicker, sturdier lanyard. Pattern: ch-70 (or to desired length, if you are busty I’d go a little longer). dc in 3rd ch from hook and in each remaining ch. Attach with a sc to the ch-3 space next to the corresponding side of the strap. (see photo)
Fasten off leaving a long tail. With yarn needle, sew yarn across the top of the work to the opposite side. Using your yarn, attach the other end of the strap (being sure not to twist it) to the opposite side. Secure each end, fasten off and weave in ends. Now go pour yourself a glass!
