A cute hot water bottle cover with a sweet fairisle design. The perfect thing for warming chilly toes after a day in the mountains. This cover is knitted from the bottom up in the round with no seaming. We use jogless stripe techniques to ensure seamless colour changes. This is perfect gift material, worked in bulky yarn it takes no time at all to knit up. Might as well make one for yourself too though!

We assume that knitters have a basic understanding of fair isle knitting, can use a figure 8 cast on, and can work using magic loop. If you have any issues with these techniques however, I am happy to offer help and advice.
