'Harry' A Right Royal Hottie!
This is a free pattern with purchase of the accompanying wool. Please only select 'buy now' if you have also added the relevant wool to your knitting basket.
It may be rather warm for a hot water bottle here in New Zealand however 'Harry' is the perfect gift for family members living in cooler climates. This is a simple knit requirung basic knitting skills and can be completed in two to three evenings.
Using a luxurious blend of merino, silk and kid mohair, there's nothing, humble, subservient or working class about this hottie cover.
I believe Megan has knitted a version for Harry as she's absolutely no intention of sharing the Royal Bed Covers with him. Harry's got other ideas... he's got very cold feet and is planning to return to live with his granny.
'Harry' fits a full sized hot water bottle.
- Yarn: 2 balls of Sesia Nordica Italian Merino 8 ply and 1 ball of Rowan Kidsilk Haze
- The two yarns are knitted alongside each other as one stitch to give a luxurious effect. Do not worry, the two strands automatically 'stick' together as one stitch.
- Needles: 4mm and 5mm needles
- Sample Colour: Nordica Scree 463 and Kidsilk Haze Steel 664
