Keep warm and cosy on the long winter nights by knitting your own simple hot water bottle cover.

hot water bottle cover Using just knit stitch and purl stitch, plus simple increasing and decreasing techniques – all explained in the instructions – you can make this even if you are a beginner knitter. We used size 7 needles and some chunky yarn we had left over from another project. You will need about 150g of yarn in total, more if you want to make matching pompoms as well. You could even make it stripy if you have different colours of leftover yarn. Download our free instructions now to see how easy it is to make.  Hot water bottle pattern

The finished cover fits a standard 19 x 27 cm hot water bottle.
