Project 4 Whale Bottle Carrier Kit - First Time Knits

Learn how to use the purl stitch with the fourth project from First Time Knits. I love whales and I've always got a bottle of water with me, and now I don't have to carry it in my hand. This project is knitted using a cotton jersey so it has a completely different feel to the yarns used in the first three projects in the book. This kit includes all the knitting materials you'll need to make the whale water bottle carrier. 

The pattern for the whale bottle carrier is in the First Time Knits book
