Knit yourself a seasonal mini-hot water bottle cosy complete with i-cord fastening and jolly pompoms! Do it for the fun of it, as a gift for someone or buy it for a knitty friend.
“Toatie” is Scots for “tiny” and is pronounced to rhyme with “hottie”
For the cosy to fit correctly, you need to make sure you have a hand-warmer sized hot water bottle of the right dimensions: viz: 19cm high (from bottom to ‘shoulder’) and 28cm circumference (unfilled).
Techniques involved: knitting in the round; turkish cast on; stranded colourwork; i-cord; pompom making.
