Merry & Cheers Christmas Pillows
The “Merry & Cheers Christmas Pillows” are knit with super bulky weight yarn and big needles. This is a quick project with inexpensive supplies. Makes a nice gift!
Pattern includes easy to print and cut patterns for both the “merry” and “cheers” felt applique letter designs. (No resizing of patterns necessary!)
For Christmas decorating and gift giving, chose a red and white color combination for a classic holiday look .
SKILL LEVEL: Easy
The pillows are knit flat and seamed on the sides. Felt applique letters are added after knitting.
This really is a very easy pattern. As with any knitting project, careful finishing makes all the difference in the outcome of the finished project. I put a lot of effort into breaking down all the steps for finishing. The pattern includes detailed written instructions and lots of photos to walk you through every step of finishing.
If you do not have a lot of experience with sewing up knitting seams, there are detailed photo illustrated instructions in the pattern.
Basic sewing skills helpful for stitching the felt letters to the knitting.
