Using a combination of stitches and colours, you can create an adorable hot water bottle cover – just perfect for snuggling down during the colder nights (and days!)
Suitable for intermediate level knitters, this project uses a mix of Knit and Purl to create both moss stitch and garter stitch to add interest and extra softness. Choose two complementing colours and knit yourself or a pal a lovely chunky cover, perfect for keeping you cosy.
The kit contains everything you need to get going and comes gift ready in one of our ethical LAD bags. Because you can make this up in a matter of hours it is perfect for your afternoon snooze or if you can part with it – give as gifts to a loved one!
The ribbed neck is stretchy enough to get the hot water bottle in and out, please note the warnings below when using hot water bottles.
Hot Water Bottle Safety
Directions of use: Do not use boiling water when filling the hot water bottle. Fill to maximum 2/3 capacity. Hold the bottle by the neck in an upright position and fill slowly to avoid hot water splashing back. Expel air from the bottle by lowering it carefully onto a flat surface until water appears at the opening. Screw the stopper sufficiently tight to ensure that there is no leakage. Finger tight should be adequate.
Warning: Do not fill using water from the domestic water system as this can considerably shorten the life of the bottle. When not in use, drain completely and keep, with the stopper removed, in a cool, dry and dark place. Check the hot water bottle and stopper for wear and damage at regular intervals. Prevent contact with hot surfaces. Prevent contact with oil or grease. Prevent exposure to sunlight. Do not lie or sit on the hot water bottle. Retain these instructions for future reference.
Approx 18 x 32cm unstretched. Fits a standard 2 litre hot water bottle.
