Measurements:

GAUGE:

Front : 18 sc and 22 rows = 4″ [10 cm]. 

Skill level: Beginner – Intermediate

Abbreviations and Glossary (US Terms):

  • ch – chain
  • sc – single crochet
  • Mini Bobble Stitch (mini bo): Yarn over, insert your hook into the next stitch. Pull yarn through two loops as if you are doing the first part of a double crochet (DC) (2 loops on the hook). Repeat one more time. So that you have 2 HDC on your hook and 1 initial loop (total 3 loops on the hook); yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.

Notes: 

  • The pattern is written in US terms.
  • Your stitch count throughout the whole pattern will be 43 stitches.
  • You may watch This tutorial and apply it throughout the pattern to help you achieve straight edges.
  • I will be referring to the khaki color as color A & to the white as color B
  • All the rows between the mini bo rows are worked with color A. And they are worked over the white yarn so that you can easily pick it up again when you need it the next row.
  • I made this pattern to fit my Approx 13″ x 8″ [33 cm x 20 cm] bottle. but you can adjust the size to make it shorter you might skip from row 1-4 and/or from row 54-57. Also to make it slightly less in width you might skip stitch 1&2 as well as 42&43. All what you have to do to avoid the confusion is to crop the chart bellow accordingly and adjust the back pieces to fit the front one.

Pin it for later!

If you’re crazy about bobble stitches and geometric shapes, you might enjoy hooking up one of these:

INSTRUCTIONS:

Front:

To be honest with you as I was writing the pattern for the front piece. I Found it very confusing. Since that you have to switch colors and stitches every couple of stitches. So I decided not to write a the front piece pattern I just included this chart.

So all what you have to do is to:

1- Chain 44

2- Then read the chart key follow the chart. and if you need to adjust the size before starting see the notes section above.

3-Watch the video bellow. Where I explained how to switch colors and stitches within one row.

Before finishing the front you will need to make a final sc row along the sides ( crocheting one sc in each row)

Back:

I made an envelope back for this hot water bottle cover pattern. So that you can take it off anytime if you need to wash it or change it.

First piece

Using color A and a 3.5 mm hook, chain 44 

Sc in 2nd chain from the hook and across, Ch 1, turn (43)

Row 2-50. Sc across, Ch 1, turn (43) 

Finally make a final sc row along the sides of this piece (crocheting one sc in each row)

Second piece:

Using color A and a 3.5 mm hook, chain 44 

Sc in 2nd chain from the hook and across, Ch 1, turn (43)

Row 2-30. Sc across, Ch 1, turn (43) 

Again make a final sc row along the sides of this piece (crocheting one sc in each row)

Assembly, finishing & Seaming:

Before assembling the front and back together, put the back pieces, then align your bottle on it then put the front piece on it. Make sure that they are all perfectly aligned.

Now put stitch markers to mark the stitches that you are going to leave when you are joining the back and front. So that later you can crochet the last part of this pattern to cover the upper part of the bottle.

I marked the 21 stitches in the middle. In other words I left 11 stitches from each side.

Now you can remove the bottle then align the two back panel against the front again

Holding the front and back panels all together with right sides facing out, Single crochet the back and front together. (as you see in this video)

When you reach the point where you have the two overlapping back pieces. Make sure to insert your hook into the three layers as you see in the picture bellow

Now to make rounded corners to perfectly fit the bottle shape. I measured 5 cm from each corner as you see in the picture bellow. Then I Sewed along the dashed lines you see in the picture. I used a yarn needle and matching yarn.

Finally remove your stitch markers. Attach Color A yarn and work 22 SC rounds or as much as you want to cover the upper part of your bottle. I made 22 rounds because I wanted to fold my it into half as if it is a high cole sweater.

I hope you liked this crochet hot water bottle cover pattern. If you made one, share it with me on Instagram. I would love to see how you adapted it and what variations you made!

Take care and happy crocheting.
