This is the only pattern I really loved from Simple Knits with a Twist:

Retro Poodle Bottle Cover

Close Up

It was easy to make and I had all the extras around the house, ribbon for the collar, "jewels" for the eyes, etc. I used Lilly Sugar & Cream cotton which is like $1.25 at the craft stores. It turned out really well for such cheap yarn. And you can't see it but he also has a pom-pom tail. The rest of the book is okay, you can check it out on Amazon but I got it from my book club for under $10. The rest of the projects are just so-so but I may try one or two more.

Oh and the poodle is covering a bottle of champagne and I plan to give it to the lady I am adopting my new puppy from. Enjoy!

I love it!  Being a poodle owner, I should probably make one of these, especially since I own the book.  It looks great!  Was it difficult?  Did you have any problems making it?

I've seen this before and it's also one of my fav projects in the book!  Good job!

I didn't think it was very hard to make at all since it's all flat knitting and just increases and decreases. The cotton I used was a little stretchy so it fit well over the bottle. I'd say it took maybe 2 days? the head is 4 separate pieces that go quickly so it's the body that takes the most time. If you've got the pattern and can find the el-cheapo cotton then I'd say go for it. I'm hoping to make another one maybe in blue or black/pink. Smiley

Thanks for all the nice comments!
