Starting off the new year with something practical,there is nothing more pleasing for me than the simple granny square, it never fails to please and in some bright happy colours it will always bring a smile.Our hot water bottle is made in Stylecraft Yarns Batik this is a scrummy yarn with 20% wool added which not only makes this yarn warm but very practical and its machine washable, it has a slight variant in each shade giving a semi solid variegated finish and it’s super soft when crocheted.We used Stylecraft Yarns Batik https://www.stylecraft-yarns.co.uk/ in shades cream 1900, gold 1902, cherry 1904, heather 1906, Pistachio 1910, violet 1912, and storm 1913, we joined our squares using a continuous join and finished our bottle with a cute “polo neck” style top, this is made using our own pattern and will be available soon.
