Have You Got the Bottle?! Multi-Wine Bottle/Soft Drinks Carrier

Come clean now, how often have you needed a single bottle wine carrier?!? 

Whether it's picnicing on days out or just joining friends for a couple of jars, for me it ALWAYS involves more than one!

I found a couple of patterns on the internet for doublers, but thought 'hey, why stop at that?!' so I've created an easy pattern to carry four bottles (shown with litre water bottles).  You could convert it to a wine cooler by making it taller and using a thermal wadding to keep things chilled (mine's a red, so I didn't bother!).
