Hot water bottle cover
Using up some spare yarn - white acrylic.
Pattern: On size 7 needles I CO 55 (but 60 would have been better) stitches. Work in Sts until desired length. Switch to P2, K2 for 2 or so inches. BO in P2, K2.

Might have been better to knit it top down rathen than the way I did it and you might also want to make eyelets for a thicker ribbon.

Using round needles would probably be better too.

A very good idea! This would be good for a gift idea in a nice silk or bamboo blend too...it strikes me that you could also use wool, which would help the water bottle retain its heat longer.

How neat! I need to make one of those. My dd, living in Germany, told me the other day that she recently bought a hot water bottle to put in her bed to keep her feet warm at night. How surprised would she be if I sent her a snuggly warm cover for it?

That has definitely got to feel better than the bare rubber bottle. My MIL would love one of those since she is always using a hot water bottle along with a heating pad AND an electric blanket!

It looks great and the ribbon adds a nice touch. Great gift idea. Thanks for posting this!

Sweet! Funny I should come across this right now. I'm currently nursing an injury right now. I should make something like this for my ice packs.

Tamar
advice for your pattern (that I will use liberally for my Charity knitting group for senior citizens)

yes, top down would be great
last or second to last row do K2tog Yo to replace every 4th stitch
then to finish do a 3 needle bind off from each end towards the middle to leave the little hole for the little tab with the hole in it that sticks out the bottom

thanks again
