This little beauty is my own creation. It came up as something fun for Sage Hen Serendipity and turned into a popular accessory for all the patrons. 😁
See those branded tags? Yup! I offer those in a non-branded version in the pattern.
This is one of my most popular items there, and the physical item (handcrafted by Me) is still an exclusive there. So if you're interested in getting the wine lanyard itself, check out their Facebook page. They seriously have some made skill at accessorizing and making gift baskets! Check out the images below to see!
Please note that Sage Hen Serendipity is a Boutique. I can not guarantee that they still carry some of these items at their shop. If you contact them about anything you see imaged and they don't have remember, they are a small boutique. They always try to find amazing and unique items, so ask them what's in stock.
Well, once the School year started and it was clear covid wasn't going anywhere anytime soon... I had to take a break from the physical items. Outside creating for patterns and making for Sage Hen Serendipity, Selling physical items went the wayside and I decided to start offering patterns to you awesome people. I surveyed Insta a few months back it was a rousing 100% yes! to sharing this pattern... So... Here ya go!
Remember, any purchase you make from my affiliates, my shop, and or my designs on Lovecraft's or Ravelry helps support my small business and helps me to create other awesome patterns for you.
OK, ON TO THE PATTERN!
This pattern is written using standard U.S. terms. Basic stitch knowledge is assumed.
Finished Measurements (all are approximate)
Height: 3 inches (from center of holder)
Width (holder folded in half): 5.5 inches (from center)
Circumference: 11 inches (from center of holder)
What you need...
4- Medium | Worsted Weight Yarn; I use Lion Brand Yarn - 24/7 Cotton® Yarn Make Sure it's cotton. anything else will stretch WAY too much.
For project (max amount): approximately 211.5 yards (193.3 meters)
Crochet hook and needle
1 - G/6 (4.25mm) crochet hook [In doing some research I was unable to find the 4.25mm individually. infact, it seems Boye is the only on that offers that size. The set is a better deal. If you don't have that size go to a 4 mm, it'll be a little smaller, but it's actually not too much of a change].
Finishing needle for weaving in ends
Scissors for cutting for cutting off at the end.
Need a logo stamper? I bought mine at West & Sage. Kelly is fabulous to work with (just make sure you're able to send her a high-resolution logo image).
8 sc 6 rows measures approximately a 2” square using the 4.25 mm hook.
This is done in a continuous round (no slip stitches for ch in each round, unless otherwise noted).
