Christmas in March

Well, slightly belated Christmas in March. Last month got a little crazy with all of us coming down with the flu the week before we were supposed to leave on our trip, and then the trip, and then getting back and trying to get everything back to normal, so I’m just now posting this project. It’s the Wottle Bottle Cover. I have been wanting to work on knitting hot water bottle covers for a while and when I found this pattern I got really excited. I love this, it’s simple, classy, and depending on the colours and pocket, it is perfect for anyone with a water bottle that needs cozying up. So this water bottle cover will be tucked away until next Christmas, one down, four to go. I used the magic loop method and it was so easy, so if you are in need of a water bottle cover, give it a go. Here is this project on my ravelry page. Edited to add: The ravelry link isn’t working properly so here is a link to the wottle bottle cover page, enjoy!

    Welcome home my dear! Hope you had a fab time. I adore this hottie cover. I’m straight off to look at the pattern. I’ve never used that method so it could be time to take the plunge. It looks really hard to me. xxxx

    amanda, I find it so much easier than double pointed needles. Look at a youtube video to see how they are doing it, much easier than trying to figure out drawings. Good luck!

    Hi chick! Me again! I can’t get the pattern on Ravelry. Everytime I click on it it takes me to the pattern but then immediately morphs into Elli’s new blog. I’ve tried everything! Heeeelp!!! xxxx

    Thank you for pointing out this pattern – perfect for presents. I am a bit bogged down with baby knitting at the moment but the secret to handmade Christmas presents is definitely starting early. I usually end up leaving it far too late!

    Amanda, sorry there was a problem with Ravelry, I have added a new link directly to the page.

    Oh it looks lovely! And the hand pocket is so clever. Must learn magic loop one of these days–I love dpns for socks, but I do find them awkward with thicker yarns.

    Ooh I love this, it’s so cute! My mum’s asked for a hot water bottle cover, I think this might be the one! Although I’ve never done this magic loop method, and I hate dpns…

    Oh that looks lovely. Would love to make one (or five) of those but fear it may be out of my skills level! Would have to start now too, to be finished in time for December…

    I AM going to try magic loop – I am! Need to talk myself into it you see lol šŸ˜€

    Oh, Jennifer, that turned out beautifully!

    I came across your website doing research for a piece I’m writing, and landed on this post. I love it! I use a hot water bottle for our puppy at night, and didn’t even think about making a cover for it. I’ll have to dig out my yarn and make one of these for it. šŸ™‚

  13. I like that knit cover… It sure makes that look very nice!

    I only own a heating pad, but that pattern is enough to give me an excuse to buy a hot water bottle! Your yarn looks cozy and snug too.

    Hope you’re feeling better!
