Let’s hear Three Cheers…

Hooray for your loved ones! Show your appreciation in yarn, of course. This bottle bag holds a regular bottle of wine, or up to two gorgeous skeins, for a perfect knitter’s gift. Ideal for a Thanksgiving hostess gift.

Hooray for knitting! Make a strong and re-useable bag. Use up your scraps and have some fun knitting. You can re-use the bag yourself, or send it out into the world as part of your gift. It will spread knitterly love, wherever it goes.

Hooray for Médecins sans Frontières! Please spread more love by donating the price of this pattern to MSF. Donate now through the MSF knitting charity p/hop; that’s Pennies per Hour Of knitting Pleasure.

The bag is knit all in one piece, with no seaming. If made in wool, as shown, the finished bag can be fulled (slightly felted) by giving it a rub in hot soapy water. It’s an easy intermediate knit.
