MAKING UP 1 Place Front Piece with WS fac­ing down. Lay Back Top Piece with WS fac­ing up on top, then Back Lower Piece with WS fac­ing up. 2 Us­ing An­thracite and back stitch all edges. 3 Turn right side out and pop in your hot wa­ter bot­tle.

join NOTE: the kfb in­creases be­low ap­pear to be off cen­tre by one stitch, but the in­struc­tion is cor­rect – do­ing it this way will place the in­creased stitches ei­ther side of a cen­tral spine as per the sam­ples.

You may find it help­ful to at­tach a re­mov­able stitch marker or piece of yarn to the right side of the work to re­mind you which side to in­crease on as the RS and WS will only look slightly dif­fer­ent from each other and it can be easy to lose track.
