First Time Knits Kits

Whale Bottle Carrier Knitting Kit - Project 4 from First Time Knits

I've always got a bottle of water with me, and now I’ve designed a cute whale water bottle carrier for it! This project is knitted using a cotton jersey, and has a comfy feel to it. You can choose from four different colour options, to make your perfect whale.

You’ll need the First Time Knits book, which has the knitting pattern for the whale water bottle carrier in it, and then you use the materials in this kit to make it. You can choose whether or not you'd like to include the book with your kit.
