Keep your bottle nice and chilled with Vinnie, Amanda Walker's innovative cooler cover

Wine coolers are fabulous for keeping your drink crisp and cold while dining al fresco but they're not the most attractive of items. Amanda Walker has come up with a simple yet stylish cooler cover which is a great way to ensure your beverage remains at optimum temperature without spoiling the look of the table. Knitted mostly in stocking stitch with ribbed bands and a little colour detail, Vinnie is a great quick knit that would also make a lovely gift.
