A work in progress…

Ever since I made my own hot water bottle cover, husband has been waiting very patiently for his own version.

I thought I better get started before winter comes to an end! πŸ˜€

I’m really liking these colours together. I don’t normally put blue and green together, but there are so many colours in this Stylecraft yarn that there always seems to be just the right shade.

I suppose I should start the other side now. Repeats are just never as much fun ….

  1. To be honest – I never thought about crocheting a WB cover in two halfs. To have a granny square in the middle is a great idea! Can’t wait to see how you proceed. Is there a pattern somewhere or does it come “straight from your head”?

    • Hi Carina. I kind of made this up as I went along, but I have sketched out a basic pattern. Once I finish and join it together I’ll write up some instructions ~ hopefully not too hard to follow. I should have it done by next weekend fingers crossed.

      • Take your time. It’s summer in Berlin and I hope it stays that way for a long, long time so I won’t need a water bottle in the near future! And as I am following you in warm times and cold … πŸ™‚

  2. Whoever coined the phrase “blue and green should never be seen” didn’t see this beautiful creation of yours – the colours are stunning!! So glad I’m not the only one who struggles a little with repeats! Just imagine how lovely for you and hubby to have his and hers handmade crochet hot water bottle covers!! Gorgeous.
