From the Knit Rowan website:
Knit this homeware hot water bottle cover, a free pattern to download as part of the Pure Wool Worsted Home Décor Online Collection. Designed by Kristen Rettig using our wonderfully soft machine washable worsted weight yarn, Pure Wool Worsted (wool), this cover features chunky rib detail an the opening and a sweet owl design.

Please note that there is a little “bend” in the branch and the counts of rounds 22-23 may look incorrect, but they are not. If you knit it as the pattern is written, you will have a little break in your branch, which was intended.

This is a FREE pattern available to members of the KnitRowan website.
