These patterns are designed to be made using whatever you have in your yarn stash.
The hot water bottle cover requires 150g DK. We used West Yorkshire Spinners Bo Peep DK (50g each of the three colours). It also needs either 2 buttons and a 3.5mm hook for the crochet button, or 4 buttons and 3.75mm needles for the knitted version.
The mug cosy requires approx. 20g cream DK, 5g black or brown DK, a small amount of stuffing, a button, a pair of goggle eyes, and either 3.5mm needles or a 3.5/4mm hook.
