    Body-

    Row 23 (RS): Knit across row to end, then cast on 40 sts and join in a round (76). Be careful not to twist stitches.
    Using the magic loop method, separate your stitches into two halves (38 and 38), being sure that the rows you did for the bottom flap are centered. (1, 36, 1) This will be helpful when shaping the "neck."

    Knit around for the length of your hot water bottle, stopping when you are just below the "shoulders."
