Sweet Pea Vase Pattern to fit over Stabucks bottle

This pattern I've written is now available for sale!
These vase covers are hand crocheted using scraps of sock yarn and fit over Starbucks Frappuccino bottles. The bottles come in two sizes – 9.5 oz and 13.7 ounces. I’ve included patterns for both. These vase covers don’t have a bottom, but just slip down to cover the bottle, so it’s easy to remove them when the vase is washed. You can whip up a flock of these in short order, using up your yarn scraps as you up-cycle a glass bottle – it’s earth friendly all around.
Most of the yarn I’ve used here is Koigu KPPPM. I’ve also used some Cascade Sock Yarn & some Curious Creek Wasonga. This pattern works great with any sock weight yarn – but I particularly like it with hand-dyed yarn – it’s a great place to show off those amazing colors.
The pattern is easy and includes how-to photos and includes several variations- you can do this even if you are a beginner!

You can purchase and download this pattern on Etsy!
