Resveratrol Wine Cozy Knitting Pattern

You may have heard about it on the news. Yes, this molecule has shown potential as a "fountain of youth and health" for mice. It is a natural substance found in many things including red wine. Of course, you would have to drink BOTTLES a day to consume enough of resveratrol for any biological effect. I am NOT encouraging you to take it as a supplement, but I was amused by the idea of putting it on a wine cozy!

This Resveratrol Knitting Chart is 18x38 stitches.

Materials Required
  • Miscellaneous remnants of machine washable worsted weight yarn in three colors.
  • size 3 double pointed needles (I like a tight gauge on my cozies)
  • Gauge: ~ 11 sts/2 inches; 17 rows/ 2 inches over stockinette
  • A wine bottle to check the desired fit. (Measured flat the cozy is ~5"x13")
  • Ribbon or I-cord chain for the top closure
  • Yarn needle or crochet hook to weave in loose ends

The Pattern

Row 1: Cast on 6 sts, join and knit 1 round even
Row 2: KfB across (12 sts)
Row 3: KfB across (24 sts)
Row 4: K 1 round even
Row 5: *K3, Kfb* repeat to end (30 sts)
Row 6: K 1 round even
Row 7: *K4, Kfb* repeat to end (36 sts)
Row 8: K 1 round even
Row 9: *K3, Kfb* repeat to end (45 sts)
Row 10: K 1 round even
Row 11: *K4, Kfb* repeat to end (54 sts)
Row 12: K 1 round even
Row 13: *K8, Kfb* repeat to end (60 sts)
Knit 8 rounds even (Rows 14-21)
Now we're starting the main chart part of the pattern.
Row 22: ssk, yo, *K2tog, YO* repeat from * 4 more times times, K2, *YO, K2tog* repeat from * 5 more times, K34 sts (60 sts)
Row 23: K 1 round even
Row 24: ssk, YO, K22, YO, K2tog, K34 sts
Row 25: K4, [work 18 sts of the bottom row of the chart, right to left], K until the end of the row.
Row 26: SSK, YO, K2, [Work 18 chart sts], K2, YO, K2tog, K across until the end
Repeat rows 25 and 26 (alternating rows with the YO border) until you have finished the last row of the chart. This last row should be a row 25.
Row N1: ssk, YO, K22, YO, K2tog, K34 sts
Row N2: K 1 round even
Row N3: ssk, yo, *K2tog, YO* repeat from * 4 more times times, K2, *YO, K2tog* repeat from * 5 more times, K34 sts (60 sts)
Rows N4-5: K across
At this point, the project should cover all but the neck of the wine bottle. Continue knitting rows until the project hits the bottom of the label on the neck (Approximately 15 more rows)

Next Row for tie holes: *K4, K2tog, YO* repeat from * until the end of the row.
Knit 20 more rows or until you've reached the top of the desired wine bottle.

Bind off, weave in loose ends. Find a ribbon or make a crochet chain for the bag tie. Put the cozy on a wine bottle and admire.

Abbreviations Used in this pattern:
Kfb - increase by knitting into the front and back of a single stitch.
K - knit
P - purl
SSK - decrease by slipping two stitches then knitting them together. Alternatively, you could slip one stitch, knit one stitch and pass slipped stitch over.

  1. This is the funniest one ever, Resveratrol wine cozy. I guess only a biochemist/chemist would find it cool without looking all geeky or weird. I would love to use this pattern to give away as gifts, I hope that will be okay with ChemKnits.

  2. You can absolutely make the items to give away as gifts. I never have any issue with people making my items as gifts or using them for charitable purposes. I just don't want anyone to start selling the objects from my pattern or to sell the pattern itself without my permission!

  5. Hey it’s Jason with Zogby, I wanted to let you know COVID has truly changed the wine industry! Our online store has never seen so many online sales for red wine. It’s insane. According to our internal sales data, people are consuming wine + tequila the most.
