Wine Bottle Gift Bags (update)

Thinking ahead to Christmas, I recently went looking for a wine bottle gift bag pattern and was surprised that after several searches I couldn’t find a design that appealed to me. Mostly, I didn’t care for the ways the tops were handled, so I came up with a couple of my own, using lace stitches shown in “The Knitter’s Bible.” What I like about these stitches is that the holes for the ties are part of the patterns. On the left is Norwegian Fir and on the right is Horseshoe Lace. These were knitted on No. 4 needles with Red Heart Knitting Worsted that I had left over from another project.

I hope I’ve done this photo thing correctly. I thought an actual picture would appear above but apparently only the link to my “flickr” image is supposed to show.

Now I would like to find patterns for tiny Christmas stockings or other pretty miniature ornaments to attach to the ties. Any suggestions?

Oh, I love them! I know what you mean about wine bottle gift bag patterns, but you got it just right. Lovely work.

Slim, thank you! If you’re still online, can you tell me how to get just the picture of the bottles instead of the whole flickr page?

Those are beautiful beachwalker!

Here’s a few ornament patterns.

Jan, thanks so much!:slight_smile: I did follow your instructions, but I think I messed up when I tried to insert the image into an edit of my thread instead of putting it in when I started the thread. Hopefully I’ll do better next time!

Thank you also for the great ornament links!:thumbsup:

:yay: Those are great.

Yeah, that doesn’t work. Just reply to yourself and do the photo that way. You’re not the only one who’s had that problem. :wink:
