|"Merry" Christmas Pillow Knitting Pattern|
The "Merry & Cheers Christmas Pillows" pattern includes full size felt applique patterns for both the "merry" and "cheers" designs. I picked a fun, casual font style and modified the letters to suit the 12" x 16" pillow size.
In the pattern you will find that the letter patterns are full size....all you have to do is print the page and cut out the paper letter patterns. No resizing of the patterns needed!
This knitted pillow is a quick and easy project. It is knit flat and seamed on the sides and bottom.
This pattern uses super bulky weight yarn. This pattern knits up so quickly you have plenty of time to knit more than one to wrap up before December 25th!
|"Cheers" Christmas Pillow Knitting Pattern|
I used Loops & Threads Cozy Wool super bulky weight yarn from Michael's Craft Store in the U.S. This bright, traditional Christmas red is called 'Claret'. I really like this yarn because it is very reasonably priced and the yarn is very soft. You can also use many other super bulky weight yarns for this project.
Other supplies needed include an inexpensive pillow form (12" x 16"), nice quality felt, DMC embroidery floss and basic sewing and crafting supplies. I recommend a good quality pair of scissors for cutting out the felt letters.
I suggest using the best quality felt you can find. My favorite source for good quality, wool blend felt is Sweet Emma Jean's Etsy Shop where you will find an incredible selection of felt colors.
This pattern includes detailed, step-by-step instructions for finishing. As with any knitting project, careful finishing makes all the difference in the outcome of the finished project. I make every effort to outline each individual step in the pattern and provide close up photos to illustrate the steps.
