Our family is non-traditional and celebrates both Hanukkah and Christmas. This year I was so inspired to up our holiday decor game and incorporate a wider range of festive treats. This is a KNIT version of the Festival of Lights Gift Pocket Garland that we released last year. I hope this makes its way into your home and spruces up your Holiday Décor!
This pattern uses the intarsia method of including the white numbers to the pouches. That can take a bit of practise, but it is worth the effort.
Reading the Number Graph: The number graph will show you when to swap colours to create the desired pattern. It is important to note that you start at the bottom of the number and work your way up to the top.
Each pocket is approx. 4in wide x 6.5in tall
