The best way to let everyone know “A knitter lives here” (or “A knitter loves someone who lives here”) is to hang a sign on the door! Inspired by Elizabeth Zimmermann, JOY is quick to knit and employs some clever use of i-cord and garter stitch. Consider it 21st-century Christmas Fiddle Faddle. If you can knit, increase, and decrease, you can add a little holiday joy to your home (or office).

Pattern includes instructions for making small and large garlands, as well as templates for cutting out felt letters to spell JOY, PEACE, MERRY, CHRISTMAS, HAPPY, HANUKKAH, NEW, and YEAR.
