‘You’re a Hottie!’ Hot Water Bottle Cover Knitting Pattern.

This chunky knit hot water bottle cover is super cosy and incredibly pretty!

The PDF knitting pattern includes written instructions for both straight needle knitting and in the round using the magic loop method.

It’s a great project for confident beginner knitters opting for straight needles or intermediate knitters who prefer to work in the round – The choice is yours!

The ‘You’re a Hottie!’ Hot water bottle cover knit pattern uses a mix of knit and purl stitches, decreasing stitches and some basic colour work. The cover has a lovely striped pattern with complementing colour hearts and features a ribbed turtleneck which is stretchy enough to get a 2L hot water bottle in and out easily.

This chunky knit hot water bottle cover takes only a few hours to complete and is a perfect choice for a cosy afternoon! Using The Yard chunky merino yarn, it’s ultra soft and snuggly. The tough part is choosing the colour combination!
