MEASURING TIP:
If your hot-water bottle has other measurements, adjust the pattern as follows: Measure the circumference around the hot-water bottle. Cast on no of sts that can be stretched to this size (with a light pull). Make sure no of sts is divisible by 2. This is the no of stitches needed for the cover. The yellow cover can be adjusted in size by working more or fewer K sts between diagram A-1 on each side of bottle.

PATTERN:
See diagram A-1 – diagram shows pattern seen from RS.

SEED ST:
ROUND 1: * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-*.
ROUND 2: K over P and P over K. Repeat 2nd round.

GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
1 ridge = 2 rounds: * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.
