This festive design is inspired by bands of holiday motifs in traditional Christmas sweaters, Starbucks holiday cups, and merry wrapping paper. The intent is to let the knitter choose their own adventure by combining both colors and motifs in ways unique to you! My goal with this pattern is to bring a little more cheer into this world.

The Holiday Doodle is a series of stranded colorwork motifs. Knit using several holiday colors of DK weight yarn, this pattern is a festive way to use up leftovers, stash, or scraps!

The Holiday Doodle Hat is knit in the round using circular needles. It includes a wide 1x1 ribbed brim, with a slouchy fit (and optional pom pom).

  • 5 pages of holiday inspired colorwork motifs
  • 4 sizes from kids to adult
