Over the last few months I have become increasingly interested in the l Gansey/Guernsey patterns on traditional fishermen's jumpers and so have created this special Hot Water Bottle cover with cables, diamonds and a choice of three different patterns for the top third of the cover - fish, hearts or a star.
I have dyed a lovely new yarn for the kits. It is a 100% superwash merino but has been specially spun to create a yarn that is particularly good for showcasing textural stitches. My shades are inspired by the every changing colours of the sea and each skein is tonal and varied rather than a solid flat colour.
The hot water bottle covers are knitted in the round on 3.25mm needles (or size to obtain gauge) and my pattern has instructions for knitting with 2 circuar needles held parallel as this is the method I prefer - although you could work with a long cable and magic loop.
The kit comes with
a printed pattern booklet with charted instructions
100g of 100% merino DK hand dyed wool
a fish stitch-marker/progress keeper on a lobster clasp to mark the start of each round
in an organza drawstring bag
You can choose your yarn colour from the options below and can also add the 3.25 circulars and a pack of knit pro cabling needles if you require them.
