This hot water bottle cover has a convenient pocket to keep your hands toasty. Simple cables wind up both the back and front, and end in an unfussy fold-over top. Tweed yarn gives it a rustic and masculine look, but the pattern would work just as well in a solid colour aran yarn, as a gift for a lady. This is a quick and easy knit that is genuinely useful to everyone, for keeping warm at night, easing aches, or even just for some comforting. The pattern is designed to fit a hot water bottle 19cm x 30cm, but can easily be adapted to suit larger or smaller bottles.
