Christmas Around the World Blanket Pattern
with Bonus Around the World Pillow Pattern
You can find the free YouTube video playlist for this pattern HERE.
This pattern is broken down into weeks so that it is easier for you to find the corresponding videos (links in the pattern) that go to the written pattern. This year's blanket had an "around the world" theme, so I focused on bringing elements that were popular to more than one country in order to honor our multi-cultured Facebook CAL Group. The themes represented are: Poinsettia, Pines/Pinecones, Christmas Candles, Christmas Sweaters, Christmas Puddings, Nativity- sheep, angels, creche and palm trees, Christmas Ribbons/Crackers, Christmas Wreaths, Santa, Christmas Pickle.
We had lots of people use alternative colors and call the sections something else if they didn't celebrate Christmas. Because the stitches are so diverse, you can make this blanket read any story that you would like to tell. It's all about creating a memory that you would like to share.
This pattern includes a bonus pillow pattern for a 12" x 12" accent pillow that features a globe.
Here are samples of the different color schemes. Information has been included for each one in the pattern notes.:
