Add a touch of magic with this mini potion bottle crochet pattern. They’re the perfect keychain size and would look super cute as part of a centerpiece or displayed in a bowl.

I’ve been having way too much fun making a bunch of these potion bottles.

This potion bottle crochet pattern is no-sew (bar a few ends to weave in) and is worked from the bottom up with some slip stitches added at the end to give 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.

Change up the colours and add a heart charm for a sweet love potion or make them in red and blue for health and mana potions!

  • 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.
