Again, not so much a pattern as a method, with details.  I do like this one. it’s very simple but looks adorable on the bottle.

It is super simple.  Well, except for the Turkish cast on.

Turkish cast on can be tricky if it is new to you, but not very tricky.  You are essentially wrapping the yarn around both needles, the slipping one out and knitting the first side of the wraps, then flipping it as if for Magic Loop and knitting the other side of the wraps.  Here are a couple of links to people who show you better than I could how to do it. First a video:

and a link to still shots. Both are useful, and there are 100 others if neither suit you.

Pattern:

Turkish cast on for 28 stitches.

Knit 12 rounds

Purl 2 rounds

Cast off using a stretchy bind off.

Use the stretchy one you prefer.  There are loads.  I use the Decrease method. That is essentially *k2togtbl, slip the stitch on your right needle and place it back on your left needle, repeat from * until all stitches are bound off. You can see it in more detail here.  Video and photos.

It looks good with either the floppy pompom, or a little tassel, and I bet the fork-sized pompom are cute too!
