Attach Color B to the crochet hook using a slip knot and start to create a very long chain rope. You will need a lot of this, so feel free to chain as much as you want. Pull yarn out of loop, making the loop large so you can reinsert the crochet hook as needed.
Row 1: Attach Color A to the crochet hook using a magic circle. Slide crochet hook into 1st CH st created with Color B and yarn over and drop all the loops on the crochet hook. You should have Color A on the crochet hook now. From here, for the entire pattern, we are going to crochet over the CH rope created with Color B. CH 1, then place 6 SC inside the MC.
Row 2: Following a continuous loop pattern (which means we won’t be starting or stopping our individual rows, instead this pattern acts like a spiral). Starting with the 1st SC from Row 1, place 2 SC in each st in the row (12 total SC st). Use a st marker to mark the first st of each row (otherwise you won’t be able to tell where each row ends).
Row 3: Place *1 SC in st 1, and 2 SC in st 2.* Repeat * around the row (18 total SC st).
Row 4: Place *1 SC in st 1 – 2, and 2 SC in st 3.* Repeat * around the row (24 total SC st).
Row 5: Place *1 SC in st 1 – 3, and 2 SC in st 4.* Repeat * around the row (30 total SC st).
Row 6: Place *1 SC in st 1 – 4, and 2 SC in st 5.* Repeat * around the row (36 total SC st).
Rows 7 – 35: Place 1 S in each st in the row (making sure you are still working over the CH rope. Add additional chains to the CH rope as necessary to complete the pattern.)
Row 36: Working over the CH rope with Color B, place 9 SC over the chains, without crocheting in the last row. Skip 9 stitches, then place 1 SC in st 10 – 18 (while working over the CH rope as well). Work 9 SC over the CH rope again, skip 9 stitches, and place 1 SC in the remaining 9 st of this row, working over the CH rope.
Rows 37 – 40: Place 1 SC in each st in each row (working over the CH rope the entire time).
Row 41: End Row 40 in the center between the 2nd and 1st handle holes. Push Color B to the side and place 1 SL st in the following st. Remove the Chains in Color B until you have 1 loop sticking out of the end of your last SC st. Insert crochet hook in the loop and pull that loop through the loop on your crochet hook (this should allow you to drop Color A and pick up with Color B). Place 1 SL st in the following st and CH 1. Turn work around so you are working in the opposite direction that you were working the entire wine tote and place 1 SC in each st in the row.
Cut and tie off both strands of yarn and hide them on the inside of the wine tote, avoiding hiding the tails near the openings for the handles.
Insert wine bottle!
