Pantone Swatch Paint Chip Knit Calendar by Studio Knit.

In celebration of the New Year, I designed this knitted calendar to schedule upcoming Studio Knit Videos! It’s shaping up to be an artsy year!

I first fell in love with this craft idea when my sister made a similar DIY calendar with designer paper. Then I saw so many cool similar Pantone Swatch or Paint Chip calendars on Pinterest and realized a Knitted version would be really cool!

Great yarn busting project!
Each swatch is knit from the bottom-up and takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
Once you have made 35 of these cute knitted swatches, arrange them in five rows and seven columns within your frame.

The materials we will use are:
• Worsted or Aran Weighted Yarn in white and any colors you chose
• 2 Size 8 US Knitting Needles
• Tapestry Needle
• Scissors
• Frame - 16” x 20”
• Dry Erase Marker (mine is brand Sharpie, sized Medium, color White, Water-Based Paint Marker) It easily wipes away with a damped cloth to start the month anew.

I hope you give this fun knitting project a try! Happy New Year!
