Have you been Naughty or Nice this year? Update your Christmas decor this season with a hand-knit pillow to match your mood!

This is also a great colorwork project for beginners. Practice your stranded knitting skills on large needles with super-bulky and forgiving yarn and fill your home with the Holiday Spirit!

Using two skeins of super-bulky yarn in your favorite shades of red and white, this pillow cover knits up in just a few hours.

I used:

Lion Brand Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® Yarn 1 skein in Cranberry and 1 skein in Fisherman colors
Knitting needles size US 13 (9mm) NOTE: I am a fairly tight knitter, so you can try and knit a few rows to make sure you don’t make the pillowcase too large for the insert. It looks best when it’s nice and tight!
Crochet Hook size N (9mm)
An 18”x12” Feather-Dawn Pillow Insert from Crate and Barrel

I offer it for free to anyone, who posts photos of their finished Naughty and Nice Christmas pillow.

Happy Knitting!
