If you are familiar with knitting Fair Isle patterns this hot water bottle will be easy to knit for you. You start knitting the front part with the Fair Isle pattern in rows, then you work the upper and lower back part. Afterwards you work the roll neck in rounds and sew together the three parts of front and back parts.

HINT: I used the Drops “Alpaca” yarn and knitted double stranded - so that’s why you need such big needles.

Materials needed:

  • approx 350 yds Sport weight yarn, double stranded, in main color and 170 yds in contrasting color
  • US 7 (4,5 mm) circular or straight needles (or any size to obtain gauge)
  • US 7 (4,5 mm) double pointed needles
  • 2 stitch holders
  • 3 buttons, 18 mm diameter
  • approx 24” (60 cm) satin ribbon in contrasting color, 10 mm in width
  • 2 safety pins

Gauge
16 sts and 24 rows in stockinette stitch with double stranded yarn = 4” (10 x 10 cm)
