About the Crochet Hot Water Bottle Cover Pattern

This pattern is great for new crocheters! It uses two simple crochet stitches and it works up so quickly!

The cover fits a hot water bottle 12cm by 21.5cm but is nice and stretchy if yours is a slightly different size. 

I was honoured to be invited to design a project for The Holiday Craft Summit for 2021 and so thought what better to make for complete beginners to crochet than a quick and easy hot water bottle cover. Better yet, it’s made with super fluffy yarn so is lovely and soft, plus it’s chunky yarn so is super fast!

If you’d like to watch the video tutorial and join my class at the summit then please do! The whole summit launches on the 29th November 2021 and is free to attend until 3rd December 2021 – there are 40 classes in total to choose from!
