The Girls Night Out Champagne and Wine Carrier is the perfect project for any occasion you want to bring a bottle of champagne or wine to - picnics, a night out, dinner at a friend's house, you name it! It works up in a flash, has a great modern color blocking look, and keeps the bottle safer in transit too!

Recently I was able to get my mitts on some Lion Brand Fettuccini - in other words, premade t-shirt yarn! I love this stuff! Nothing could be faster or more fun to use for a quick project - it calls for a Q hook after all! You should've seen me in my local JoAnn Fabrics when I spotted an entire endcap of the stuff... I'm pretty sure the entire store heard my happy squee! THIS YARN HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED - please see the substitution suggestions below.
The Girls Night Out Champage and Wine Carrier is my first project with t-shirt yarn, and it's super fun and easy to make. And did I mention fast? So fast! I love this big chunky look, and it's so stretchy it works for both a standard size wine bottle and the fat bottom champagne bottles. I do love champagne, almost as much as yarn!
This pattern can be worked in any colors of course. And you could even make your own t-shirt yarn (SEE LINK BELOW). But for this project I chose a shiny silvery white and bold hot pink - just too fun!
Girls Night Out Champagne and Wine Carrier
