A lovely, striking and simple pattern which can be worked up in a couple of hours.
An excellent pattern for a beginner. Good practice for cables and knitting in the round.
The Cable Hot Water Bottle Cover is knitted in the round and the bottom is seamed. Could be knitted flat and then seamed.
The pattern is both written and charted.
5 sts x 6 rows = 1 inch.
I learned to knit at my grandmothers knee aged 6. After many unfinished projects over the years, I finally realised that I didn't like seaming, so almost all of my patterns don't need it. I love to knit in the round, be it socks or sweaters.
