Happy October! I’ve been having way too much fun making a bunch of these potion bottles. This mini potion bottle crochet pattern is so quick to make and they’re no-sew (bar a few ends to weave in) which you know I love. They’re the perfect keychain size and would look super cute as part of a centerpiece or displayed in a bowl.
The bottle is worked from the bottom up with some slip stitches added at the end to give some definition between the bottle neck and the cork.
I finished mine by tying some brown yarn around the neck but you could also use twine or thin ribbon. I tied it a few different ways so experiment and see what you like best.

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 2.75″ (7cm) tall when using the materials listed.
Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.
Gauge is not important in this pattern. Use a hook size to match your chosen yarn. Make sure that your stitches are tight enough to prevent stuffing showing through and adjust hook size if necessary.
