Knitting up Party Bottle Cozies make the perfect gift for dressing up bottles of bubbly and sparkling juice. They make wonderfully thoughtful hostess gifts with my free knitting pattern and video tutorial. Your bottle is sure to be the talk of the party!
It’s a great project to customize for your hostesses party theme! It’s also is a great yarn busting project, and we can get really creative. I am even adding a bit of this glittery yarn throughout my design to make it a little more glam. I am dressing my bottle up for a black tie affair!

To make our knitted bottle cozy, we first need to measure our bottle and do just a little math.
Bottle Circumference * 4 = Number of Stitches to Cast On
My bottle is about 10 inches in circumference, so I am casting on 40 stitches using the long tail cast on method.
We will knit in the 2×2 Rib Stitch, which is Knit Two and Purl Two on every row. It’s a great project to customize for your hostesses party theme! It’s also is a great yarn busting project, and we can get really creative. I am even adding a bit of this glittery yarn throughout my design to make it a little more glam.

We are knitting from the bottom up, and will keep knitting until our piece is the height we desire. For my bottle, that’s just under 8 inches. Now it’s time to knit decreases to fit our bottle neck.
We will knit just three Decrease Rows
* K2, P2, K2Tog, P2 *
* K2, P1, K2, P2Tog *
* K1, P2Tog *
Keep knitting in the 1×1 Rib Stitch, which is * K1, P1 * until your bottle neck is the height you desire, and then just bind off!
So glam! You have just learned how to knit Party Bottle Cozies. I hope you are inspired to give this quick knit project a try.
