A Warming Weekend Project

This Chunky Cable Hot Water Bottle Cover is worked in chunky yarn held double. It knits up very quickly so is an ideal weekend project.

One size: The finished cover will fit a hot water bottle measuring approx 20cm x 32cm.

You will need: 10mm straight needles and a darning needle to sew sides together and to weave in ends.

Yarn Quantity: approx. 180m of chunky yarn. The cover in the photo is knitted in Caithness Yarns Cheviot Chunky from Remember that this yarn is held double so if substituting with a super bulky yarn you will only need approx. 90m.
