Joules and Joulietta Hot Water Bottle Covers
It happens every year – the temperatures start to dip and the evenings get chilly, yet it seems too early in the year to be turning the heating on. That's when you need to get out your hot water bottle and keep cozy warm!
The Joules & Joulietta pattern includes instructions for two different sizes of cover to fit a standard bottle and for a travelling size or child's size. The covers feature a beautifully textural stitch which is easy to work so they knit up quickly.
