Beat those winter blues with a snuggly hot water bottle cover, and keep your little monkeys warm at night-time! The face pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles and sewn onto the cover. The cover is knitted in the round (I used magic loop and Judy’s magic cast on).

SAFETY NOTE: Due to the inclusion of buttons for eyes this Hot Water Bottle Cover is not suitable for young children, but you can embroider the eyes in yarn instead if making for a youngster.

FINISHED SIZE: One size: The pattern is to fit a 2 litre hot water bottle, for which the standard measurements are 20cm wide x 28cm tall, excluding the neck and stopper.
