I had loads of fun designing these guys and I'm sure you can let you own imagination run away with you and make up your own characters. We've started you off with The Wizard Grog, Father Tipplemas, Mead Marian, Ginny the Witch and Major Merlot. Of course we'd love to see who you come up with so we've started a Bottle Buddy Rogues Gallery over on Pinterest, please feel free to email us and we'll post your characters up there too! These Bottle Buddies are really quick and easy to crochet and you only need oddments of yarn to make them. Endless fun! They are just the right size for a standard 75cl wine or spirit bottle and would make a perfect addition to a gift! The original covers shown were made using oddments of Wendy Serenity Super Chunky Yarn and Twilleys Freedom Yarn. The crochet hook was 6mm providing a finished tension of 3 stitches and 3 rows to approximately 2.5cm/1″. The overall size of the finished cover is approximately 31cm/12″ tall and 29cm/11.5″ around. This is measured flat and un-stretched. It will fit a standard 75cl wine or spirit bottle. You'll need a very small amount of stuffing for the nose (though scraps of yarn will be fine) and some black yarn for embroidering the eyes. Go on, go wild, see what you've got stashed in your imagination! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Uses double crochet stitch (single crochet if you're in the US) plus some decreasing GAUGE 3 stitches and 3 rows = 1"/2.5cm SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 31cm/12" tall and 29cm/11.5" around.
