About This Pattern
- It’s a great St. Patrick’s Day 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 Wine Glass Holder!
- It works up quickly 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 St. Patrick’s Day 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.

Finished St. Patrick’s Day 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) yarn.
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 less than a quarter skein in total.
I used the color “Kelly Green” for the main part of the wine glass lanyard and straps; the color “Black” for the hat belt; and the color “Sunny Day” for the hat belt buckle.
Crochet Hook Size: H/8 (5.00mm) for everything but the belt buckle. For the belt buckle: F/5 (3.75mm).
Other: Yarn Needle, Scissors
st = stitch

- This St. Patrick’s Day Crochet Wine Glass Lanyard is made from the bottom up.
- It is worked in the round. Do not turn your work at the end of each round.
- Chains do not count as a stitch.
- Always start in the same stitch as the chain.
- Join each round with a slip stitch into the top of the 1st stitch made (not the chain).

Chain Row: With green colored yarn, ch 18. Join with a sl st into 1st ch, ensuring that the back of the chains (the back ridge loops) are on the inside, facing away from you.
Round 1: Note: you will be working each stitch of Round 1 into the top loop of each chain. This is important as we will be attaching the brim later on in the pattern to the bottom loops. Interweave has a great diagram of where the top loop is here.
ch 2. 2 dc into the top loop of 1st ch. dc into the top loops of the next 8 chains. 2 dc into the top loop of the next ch, dc into the top loops of the next 8 chains (20 sts). sl st into top of 1st dc to join.
Belt – Round 2: change color: attach black colored yarn with a sl st.
You can leave the green yarn attached (as long as it’s in the inside of your work) and pick it back up again after the belt is completed.
With black yarn, ch 2. 2 dc into 1st st, dc into next 3 sts. Repeat *2 dc into next st, dc into next 3 sts* from * to * around (25 sts). sl st into top of 1st dc to join.
Round 3: change color: attach green yarn with a sl st. Fasten off black yarn and leave a tail to weave in loose ends.
With green yarn, ch 2. dc in each st around (25 sts). sl st into top of 1st dc to join.
Rounds 4 – 6: ch 2. dc in each st around (25 sts). sl st into top of 1st dc to join.
Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.
Remember how we worked Round 1 into the top loops of each chain stitch? We will now be working into the bottom loops of each chain along the bottom of your now completed wine holder. Here’s the diagram from Interweave again showing where the bottom loop is.
With the bottom of your completed wine glass holder facing away from you (the top facing you), attach green yarn to the bottom loop of the chain stitch that is directly to the left of the slip stitch where you joined the chain row. Work the instructions below in the bottom loops of each chain from right to left.
Can Cozy Hat Brim Instructions:
Round 1: With your green yarn attached to the bottom loop, to the left of the chain round’s sl st, ch 2. In the same st, dc. dc in next st. 2 dc in next st. Repeat *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* around. (Total sts: 26 dc sts and the ch 2 that began the round). There will be a slight gap between the last 1 dc and the starting ch 2 from the chain row’s sl st. Make 2 dc into that sl st to close the gap. Sl st into top of the 1st dc to join.
Round 2: ch 2. In the same st, dc. dc in next st. 2 dc in next st. Repeat *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* around. There will be one st left. dc into last st. (Total sts: 41 dc sts and the ch 2 that began the round). Sl st into the top of the 1st dc to join.
Fasten off and weave in loose ends.
With F/5 (3.75mm) hook and golden yellow colored yarn, ch 18.
The rest of the belt buckle is made in one continuous row.
1st Rectangle Side (short): In 2nd ch from hook, sl st into back ridge loop. (Interweave has a great diagram of where the back ridge loop is here). In next 2 chains, sl st into back ridge loop. In next ch, sl st x 3 into same back ridge loop.
2nd Rectangle Side (long): sl st into next 4 back ridge loops. In next ch, sl st x 3 into same back ridge loop.

With a H/8 (5.00mm) hook and green yarn, ch 91.
Row 1: In 2nd ch from hook, sc. sc in each st across (90 sc). ch 1 and turn.
