We dug out the hot water bottles last week to keep little toes warm in bed but they're in need of new cosy's (wrapping them in towels is just not cutting it!)

Here are a few favourites that you can make too.

One for the knitters! This cosy cuddly cover is a beauty with cable details to keep the knitting interesting. The Haworth pattern is available for free on Ravelry.


Happy in Red has a great easy to follow tutorial for this sewn cosy. 


Our friend Kate from Two Little Banshees made up this beautiful cosy using some Liberty scraps. A great way to use up some favourite scraps that are too small for much else. She used this tutorial

Strapped for time? This no nonsense pattern by Popsicles & Pinatas can be whipped up in no time at all! Make it in faux fur to give it that touch of luxury!

How about this Mixed Stitch crochet cosy? A perfect way to use up those leftover balls of yarn.

I have five covers to make so I think I'll be going the quick and easy route otherwise we'll be using towels until next winter!
