About This Christmas Wine Glass Pattern
- It’s a great Christmas crochet gift idea for beginners as the pattern only uses simple stitches…if you know how to single crochet, double crochet, chain and slip stitch you can make this Christmas Wine Glass Holder!
- It works up quickly (you can complete this pattern before the end of your favorite Christmas movie!) and uses only a small amount of yarn (way less than a quarter of a skein in total).
- Designed to fit a standard wine glass (with a circumference of approx. 11″). I tested it on every wine glass I could find ranging from narrow to wide and it fit on every size.
- This Christmas Wine Glass Lanyard Crochet Pattern is written in English for right-handed crochet using standard US crochet terminology. If you’re more familiar with UK terminology, check out my US to UK Conversion Chart.

Christmas Wine Glass Holder Pattern Details
Finished Santa Wine Glass Lanyard sizing using the yarn listed below and a H/8 (5.00mm) hook creates a wine glass holder that has a circumference of 11″ (at the widest part), which fits a standard wine glass and is 3.5″ tall. The strap is approximately 33″ (when not stretched).
Yarn: Any worsted weight (4) for the wine glass holder and bulky fleece (5) yarn for the fluffy top.
I used Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarn, Solid. This yarn is medium (4) weight and 100% acrylic. The size is 4.5 oz / 127.5 g. A skein is 285 yd./260m and you only need way less than a quarter skein in total.
I used the color “Cherry for the main part of the wine glass lanyard; the color “Black” for the belt; and the color “Sunny Day” for the belt buckle.
For the fluffy top of the wine glass holder, I used Bernat Pipsqueak. This yarn is bulky (5) weight. The size is 3.50 oz. / 100 g. A skein is 101 yd / 92 m. You only need a few yards. The exact color is called “Whitey White.”
Crochet Hook Size: H/8 (5.00mm) for everything but the belt buckle. For the belt buckle: F/5 (3.75mm).
