Knitting…it’s not just for wearing. Sometimes we can use knitting to dress up our home. And, if there is one thing that says Plucky, it might just be a stag sporting a beautiful set of antlers, propped up in a favorite chair. This is an oversized pillow, with a noble stag’s head motif on the front and a rich blanket stripe on the reverse. Mix those colors!
