Gingerbread Man Hot Water Bottle cover knitting pattern by The Zany Knits

I love making these novelty hot water bottle covers and they make great presents, as well as a good larger project. The Gingerbread Man’s a really fun story and instantly conjure childhood memories of being in the kitchen with mum. Great combo for adults and children alike.

The biggest challenge in the design was keeping the flatness of the gingerbread man, although he was hiding a full sized hot water bottle. The first decision was to make the body in one piece on the front, with two panels on the back to hide a velcro fastening. He has a little extra give in the tummy area so the water bottle can sit comfortably when full.  I’m very pleased with the stitching detail on the neck and top of the limbs, as they look really tidy and fluid.

Here he is in all his glory! You can find the pattern at:
