This pattern is available from leethalknits.com for $5.00.

Each using fewer than 20 yards of yarn, there are 2 different versions for wine glass charm alternatives, for some extra variety - knit up a bunch with all your different colored yarn leftovers, or make them matching with different colorful buttons on each one to tell them apart. And then, since my friends and I tend to celebrate with beers rather than wine, I added a bottle sweater option to the set as well!

This pattern is small, but a bit on the complex side, as far as quick knits go… Short rows make the round shape, and since they’re being worked with the cables, if you’re new to short rows you might have a hard time figuring things out (or, you might think you’re doing something wrong even though you’re not). Just follow the pattern carefully, trust that you’re supposed to be turning before reaching the end of the row (short rows are awesome, really!) and you can do it!

This pattern is part of the October leethal quick knits club mini-ebook, which also includes patterns for a lapel flower, crocheted shoes, and other crafty goodness.

Note: In addition to the mini-ebook, this pattern is also available in the leethal Quick Knits best-of ebook (and print booklet)!
