Hi there! Are you still decorating for the holidays? I have to admit, I am not decorating much this holiday. With this COVID 19 virus, I am temporary on leave from (my regular full time) work to focus on Distance Learning and the virus hit home recently affecting my husband and parents but they're all doing much better now. Maybe next year will be a better year! I do have time for knitting and crochet (of course!).
This holiday decor is made using Big Twist's Natural Blend from Joann Stores!
This project is sponsored by Joannstores.com but the design and my opinions are my own.
When I first started knitting, I spent a lot of time in Joanns! One of the first Super Bulky Yarn I started using was their Big Twist, Natural Blend. So I wanted to use this same yarn for this project.

I have been practicing my traditional method of knitting (which I thought I could never get!) It was extremely helpful when knitting with 2 strands of yarn!
I have free patterns on my blog and ad-free pdfs in my shops. Visit today and save them to your favorites!

This pattern is knitted in stockinette stitches with 2 colors. Use the graph to follow the color changes. You can watch the video if you need help following the chart.

There are a few things I may have done differently (after the fact). I slipped the first and last stitch to create a better edge however after blocking it still curled a little. I feel like making a garter stitch edge with at least 3-4 stitches would make it a little more stable.
If you wanted a smaller piece, you can separate the chart by the green lines adding additional stitches for the edges.
The FREE pdf pattern is also available for download on my Ravelry Shop.
I’d love to see your completed work!
