This pattern is a great way to make your couch or bed look super Christmasy - and to create a cuddly companion for those cold winter nights!

Measuring approximately 13 inches across, it adds a fun touch to any room without being overwhelming. Why not knit up a few in different colors to scatter over your sofa or bed?!
