Budding Branches Hot Water Bottle Cover

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Budding Branches Hot Water Bottle Cover Link to website or photo www.interweavestore.com/Knitting/Patterns/Budding-Branches.html What are you most proud of? I figured out a new way to do the bobbles to keep them nice and tight, and I shared the tip in the pattern. Also, this was my first design published by Interweave, and I was thrilled to be included in the magazine! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't forget that the motif is shown centered in the magazine, but is actually meant to be asymmetrical (as in this photo).

What you will need

  • Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton (100% organic cotton)
  • 1 skein; Needles: Size US 7

Q&A with Kendra Nitta

Sheila Zachariae asked:
I love a hot water bottle cozy! I am from a generation that used them! Beautiful design! I especially like the design off center!
Kendra Nitta answered:
Thank you so much! And I really appreciate that you like the asymmetry -- a lot of the people who have knit it up have moved the motif to the center, but I like it where it is, too :)
