The other wine cozy pattern i was talking about!

In the submissions thread, i mentioned that in one of my books (Handknit Holidays to be exact) i had a pattern for a felted wine cozy....i just happened to stumble across it for free on line through country living magazine! A few people mentioend they thought the wine cozies were cool, so I just had to share this pattern here...

Now is that not a snazzy way to present a bottle of wine as a gift or what? Biggrin

As long as you use 100% wool you are fine. I should do a kool-aid dyeing demo again, I haven't done one of those in awhile and you can dye and then felt your yarn!

Felting is SUPER easy, you basically just put it in the washer on hot with a couple of towels or pairs of jeans.
