Altopiano × 2

Altopiano is a pure cashmere aran yarn. Spun exclusively for us in Italy. Altopiano, (meaning 'highland' in Italian) knits on anything from a 5mm to 7mm and is perfect for creating luxurious winter accessories.

Cashino Aran

A merino and cashmere blend with nylon for extra strength, so soft it would be perfect for cowls and scarves alike.

Kit Needles

A set of 7mm circular needles (although the item is knitted flat these are my needles of choice)

Description

This gorgeous cashmere hot water bottle cover is simple to knit, with very little shaping. Perfect to snuggle up to on the coldest winter night. Can be made in 2 colours using intarsia or one colour with reverse stocking stitch pattern definition. Hot water bottle is included in the kit.

Please note that this pattern uses 2 balls of Altopiano. If you would like to make the heart Red then please add a comment at checkout and I will include enough red yarn free of charge. You will still need 2 balls, but will have around 30g left over to make something else. Also, the pattern is written using 7mm needle (rather than 5.5 needle recommended with the yarn). This is because you want a looser, ‘airy’ knit for the warmth to escape.

Alternatively, I have added Cashino Aran to the options for a more economical knit kit. You would only need 1 skein of this as they are 100g. However, I do recommend using 6.5mm needles.
