The first weekend of January was wet, cold, grey and miserable. So what better thing to do than stay in and crochet? Yea, I thought so – there’s nothing better than curling up under a warm blanket with a cup of tea and my crochet.
My Dad got me a few craft kits for my birthday back in September (You can read about them here). I grabbed the kit for the hot water bottle cover as it’s definitely the season for warmth and got hooking.
There is everything that you would need included in the kit (except for scissors). There’s even a hook and a needle too.
The pattern was super easy to follow and there was even instruction booklets on how to crochet so this would be perfect for someone new to crochet.
Each side uses treble crochet (double crochet to those in the US), some simple shaping at the top and a scallop edging.
Once the cover is made, there’s even a cute flower to decorate the cover 🙂 I love it.
Now I’ll be nice and cosy for the rest of my winter crafting.
