I know! I know! How do you fit a hot water bottle into a beach crochet series?
Well…. you can fill it with ice water and it does wonders for keeping you cool on the beach or anywhere. I discovered this little gem of an idea when I needed something to quell some pesky hot flashes and this cold water bottle idea helped immensely. It also gave me a crochet idea. So here we are!
November’s project in our “Life’s a Beach series” is this cold/hot water bottle cover. This is the second last instalment in our series for 2021. Only one more to go! You may be already wondering what’s in the pipeline for 2022? Stay tuned because there will be a sneak peak coming up sometime next month for our next series.
Now, this cover was created using a patchwork type method using single crochet stitches so it’s very beginner friendly. However, if you are a little more experienced you can really get creative with your colour choices and how you choose to sew up your patches. I recommend using 100% cotton for this project as it is best for things that may come into contact with moisture and / or heat.
What I especially love about this project is that it serves well for any season. You can make this for yourself or a gift for someone you know who may like to stay extra cozy this winter or a friend who may need to keep cool at all times;)
