I’m a wine drinker and I love going to wine festivals or spending time in the yard with a good glass of Vino! I’ve been wanting to make a wine glass lanyard for about a year now. Last summer my girlfriend and I were hanging with the kids one evening and we continually were looking for somewhere to place our glasses when we had to ‘assist’ a child with something. We decided we needed a holder for our glasses so there would always be close to us! So, came to be the Vineyard Lanyard.

Oh The Possibilities!
This quick and simple wine glass cozy pattern hangs around your neck, so you’ll never lose your glass! and frees up your hands. The more we thought about it the more ideas we came up with for the uses of this handy-dandy lanyard!
- Wine Tastings
- Wine Festivals
- Backyard BBQ’s
- Doing Laundry
- An Evening Stroll
- Making Dinner
- Wine Ninja Gift!
The list is endless! I actually did give this one when I was wine ninja-ing! I grabbed an inexpensive wine glass and had the Vineyard Lanyard on it in the gift bag! Let me know in the comments any other ideas you come up with!
I chose to use the Caron Simply Soft Party yarn because, well, rainbow sparkles!! Why wouldn’t I want sparkles with my wine! My testers used a variety of yarn though and they all turned out great!
My testers had a lot of fun with this one!
Vineyard Lanyard Pattern
- Approx. 30 yds worsted weight #4 yarn; I used *Caron Simply Soft Party in Silver Sparkle
- US size H/8 (5.0mm) crochet hook. I used my fave *Furls
- Scissors – These are my fave *scissors!
- Yarn Needle – I use these *Clover needles.
Finished dimensions laid flat: Body of holder: 3.5″h x 4″w Including strap: 16″h
- ch – Chain
- sc – Single Crochet
- hdc – Half Double Crochet
- dc – Double Crochet
- fan – [dc, ch2, dc, ch2, dc]
- sl-st – Slip Stitch
- sk – Skip
- st(s) – Stitch(es)
- US Terminology
- All ch1 do not count as a stitch
- (ch5,dc) counts as [dc, ch2, dc, ch2, dc]( to be completed on last st of round)
- *__* denotes repeat sequence
- To increase size for larger wine glasses add additional repeats by increasing your beginning ch in multiples of 6+1
- You can make the strap longer by chaining more than 85. Please note that the weight of the glass and wine will give the strap good stretch
