Quick-to-knit, this wine gift bag will turn even an ordinary bottle of wine into an exquisite gift. The bag is knit in the round from the bottom up using a disappearing loop cast-on and the magic loop method. Horseshoe lace is easy to learn, making this a great pattern for knitters who are ready to try lace. The cotton yarn is fabulously soft and washable—serve the wine from the drip-catching bag, then toss it in the laundry. The stretchy lace will accommodate a variety of bottle types.
