Could anyone recommend a free pattern for a hot water bottle cover please? I've registered with Ravelry and looked at others online and yes, there are some lovely cable-y etc ones, but I am a complete knitting novice and need:
Use 2 knitting needles, not a circular needle Just plain & purl knitting (is it called stocking stitch or moss stitch?) or something similar No cables or fancy bits (not just yet!) Holes for ribbon at top or drawstring
I can decorate with felt applique/buttons etc so simply need an easy basic pattern. I hope MN knitters can help me
Yes, Ethelb the ribbon top is lovely but the bit about "using a twisted rib, which sounds so much more complicated than it really is and a moss/seed stitch frame to emphasise your Swiss darning" worries me - what on earth is swiss darning?
Please keep looking for really BASIC patterns - I'm doing the same still !
