I finished this birthday gift just in time. It is the Hot Water Bottle Cover from And So to Bed. The yarn I used was my own hand dyed in sport weight. I knit the pattern as written except that I left out the large star at the top corner. I thought it distracted too much from the pretty tassel. As buttons I used three small disks that I crocheted with slip-stitches.
I enjoyed this fast knit lot. It is such a cute design! I have made this for my MIL, who is a big fan of hot water bottles. I really hope, that she will like it and that it will make her smile!
