Knitting Cheer

Add a little knitting to your holiday decor this year with our Kelbourne Woolens Holiday Paper Chain!


During the holidays Courtney’s family makes paper chains and strings them throughout the house.  This year, uninspired by the free downloadable templates she found online, she asked Kate to help her out by making a knitting related paper chain template.


The end result is 3 designs in 2 colorways – a wide cable knit, vertical cable stripes and all-over snowflakes.


Courtney’s son Clyde got in on the action as well – he’s always game for anything involving scotch tape!


Click on the button below to download your very own paper chain template, complete with easy-peasy instructions!


As a little extra bonus, leave us a comment on this post with your guess as to how many pine cones Maura used in our mantle decor and we’ll send you a copy of the Avery Cowl and two skeins of Acadia in the new color Pine Cone! {Prize will be awarded to the first correct guess. Only one guess per person, please!}

Happy Crafting!
