Here(tm)s your chance to own a VW Bug ! ;-) For all crocheting Volkswagen fans out there I designed this cosy hot water bottle cover with a VW bug applique on it. The cover has a front and a back side showing the bug. The cover is crocheted with hooksize G ( 4 mm) from soft acrylic yarn, but the pattern is also suitable for wool or cotton yarn. The applique can also be used to embellish other things like bags, pillows, blankets or clothing. The cover will fit any standard size rubber hot water bottle. (7,87 x 10,63" - 20 x 27 cm) There will be an opening on the backside to insert your hot water bottle easily, with a buttonclosure. Used stitches : chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet. This pattern is my own original design and is written in english, in US terminology.
