Does anybody please know of a hot water bottle cover pattern which is knit in the round?  I can find plenty of flat ones  :o but not in the round!

Please don't suggest adapting a pattern to in the round  :[ it confuzzles me horribly :P

Here's hoping  :)

Thank you very much  :flower:

I was going to suggest adapting a flat pattern  :)
Life's too short for ironing.

I made one by turning an old jumper into felt (on a very hot wash) and made a sort of envelope using the bottle as a pattern and just zigzag stitched it together

Ravelry has hundreds, I searched hot water bottle and also "one-piece". There are 115 options, 51 of which are free.

I quite fancy one myself! I often get cold in bed.

I made one for a xmas present out of a leopardskin cotton Tshirt fabric in my stash. I just cut two rectangles of T shirt fabric, twice the length and a bit more (enough for a neck) and doubled them up . I used some bra strap elastic to pull in the neck (loose enough to get the bottle in and out). My DGS thinks he is taking a pet to bed!
