Pure Warmth Hot Water Bottle Cover

Lion Brand« LB Collection« Organic Wool

GAUGE:

20 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Texture st. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Birthday Gift Reviewed by Emi Kjenstad on 2011-05-06 ****
I made this cover for my grandfather.
He got it just as winter was ending but just sent me a letter that said it had been 'just the ticket for removing neck aches.'
He really liked it and i think I will knit more in autumn to send to other loved ones.

Here are my suggestions for people who want to knit this number:
1. I found that the cover was a bit small width wise and added an additional border in grey to one of the sides, it would be easy to add on a couple of extra stitches to the border and avoid the hassle entirely.

2. I would suggest knitting a couple of rows before you start adding the button holes. It ended up looking a bit weak in the back because of pull from the buttons.

3. If you do decide to use a couple of colours make sure you are consistent with how you overlap the yarns.

4. One more thing to watch out for. I bought the bottle after I had started knitting (tsktsk). The neck on my waterbottle was a bit wider than the one i had at home and since I had not taken that into account earlier, I had to use larger knitting needles for the 'turtle neck' (which I also used two colours for).
