We’re under 100 days until the winter holidays! Are you someone who loves to decorate your home for the holidays? If so, we have the pattern for you to get started on now – the Holiday Plaidish Duo!
This free pattern collection, by the wonderful designer Katy Banks, includes an adorable stocking and pillow with a fabulous festive pattern. Using a combination of fair isle and intarsia, the plaid section is both fun and will look good in any home this season.
The back of the pillow on the other hand has a great striped section – so the pillow looks great on both sides.
The stocking uses the same combination of plaid and stripes throughout the piece, with the plaid only on the top portion, with the stripes finishing it off.
This pattern is for an advance/intermediate knitter, because of all the different knitting techniques. I’d probably start with the stocking first – the smaller area will help you get used to the plaid before tackling the pillow!
We choose traditional Christmas colors for our version, but since it’s in Wool of the Andes Worsted, the color combinations are nearly endless. Choose your favorite 4 colors to match your home – and hey, who says these pieces can’t stay up all year!
