When it's time to cuddle under a throw for movie night or snuggle down under your duvet in bed, this cozy bedfellow will make great company. Covering your hot water bottle in squashy garter stitch softness, it will be your new best friend on frigid winter nights. Personalize it with your initial for a colorful touch of whimsy or as a charming gift. Pattern Notes This pattern is worked seamlessly in the round starting from the middle to the bottom, then the provisional cast on edge is worked from the middle to the top in two pieces, the button band which is attached to the bottom half, then the top is knit in the round. The monogram is worked over the stockinette oval with duplicate stitching. Alternately, you may omit the oval if you want to go monogram-less. A provisional cast on is usually worked by taking scrap yarn and crocheting a chain, picking up and knitting into the bumps along the back of the chain. Once the crocheted yarn is removed you have live stitches with which to work that makes a seamless continuation of the fabric. If you are new to these techniques there are many good instructional videos online for both provisional cast on and duplicate stitch.
