Remember pixellated Scotland?
Well, it was lying around the house, doing nothing, so I decided to turn it into a cover for my new hot water bottle (yes, I really am that cool…)
The brown background is moss stitch, with stocking stitch colour squares.
I did the back as one big rectangle, with a particularly strokeable skein of alpaca/silk (thanks, Liz!) and crocheted the two together, then added a further double crochet trim (because I hate sewing up.)
It could do with a couple of tabs to go over the top, and buttons, but I didn’t think of this at Woolfest where there were buttons galore, and Cockermouth only had funny coloured buttons…
I know it to be useful (yes, I realise it’s nearly 30 degrees outside, but this will not last, we’re in Derbyshire), and believe it to be beautiful, so that’s OK, yes?
