Give the Wine Bottle Santa Apron as a Gift
She smiled at the wine bottle. Adding the Santa apron to it was the perfect touch. Now the bottle matched the rest of the kitchen’s Christmas decor. Everything was ready for the party. All that was needed now were the guests who would be there at any moment.
During the Holiday Season, especially during the Christmas time, there are always so many Holiday parties that people attend and need to bring gifts to. Well, these gifts are not always for kids. In fact, this Wine Bottle Santa Apron pattern is not intended for a child, although one could use this Santa Apron for a large doll or stuffed animal.
In case you want to use this crochet Santa Apron for a doll or stuff animal you might need to make adjustments to the pattern, specifically for the neck or height of the apron. As the Wine Bottle Santa Apron pattern is made with cotton yarn, it can also be used as a soap bottle apron which you then can also use for washing your dishes. That sounds super fun and decorative.
This Santa Apron is perfect for a crochet beginner as it is very easy and fast to make. I made this pattern in under 30 minutes and that includes designing it. So I am sure you can make it even faster.
Having used cotton yarn for this pattern is super durable, soft and has a delicate feel when holding it in your hand. To give this Santa apron a special little touch I used some very bright yellow felt that I cut out to be used as Santa’s belt. Of course if you prefer making it using yellow cotton yarn, you can do that as well.

You will need:
4 sc x 4 rows = 1 square inch
6.5 x 9.5 inches without counting the straps and the neck holder
Stitches (US terms) used:
- sc – single crochet
- sl st – slip stitch
Start with red
Row 1: Ch 21, 1 sc in each st, starting with the 2nd ch from the hook, ch 1, turn (20 sts)
Row 2 – 16: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn
Change to yarn to black
Row 17 – 21: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn
Change yarn to red
Row 22 – 29: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn
Row 30 – 36: 1 sc dec, 1 sc in each st until you have 2 sts left, 1 sc dec, ch 1, turn
The last row in red will have 6 sts across
Now, you will go all the way around the apron for the edging, the straps and the neck holder strap using the red yarn and single crochets (1 sc per row).
When you get to the point where row 30 is (the corner where the decreases started), do the following on both sides of the apron:
Ch 25, 1 sc in each st starting with the 2nd ch from the hook (24 sts).
Then continue adding sc’s per row all around, in the corners, add 3 sc’s.
Once you get back to the top, do not do a row of sc’s across the neck line, but rather do the following:
Ch 8 and sl st to the beginning st of the edging round.Now fasten off and weave in the ends.
Add white yarn on the right side of the neck line (where the neck holder strap started). Will now add 7 single crochets across, like this:
Ch 1, 1 sc, 1 sc down 1 row, 1 sc down 2 rows, 1 sc down 3 rows, 1 sc down 2 rows, 1 sc down 1 row, 1 sc, sl st, fasten off and weave in the ends.
Now you, you just need to add the belt buckle by cutting out a 2 x 2 inch square of yellow felt. Then make a line of 0.5 inch rim and cut out the middle part to make the square into a frame that looks like a belt buckle. Lastly, glue the belt buckle to the Santa Apron using hot glue or super glue.
You are now ready to use the Santa Apron for a wine bottle which can be used as a gift or simple decoration in your home.
