Knit a 2020 Paint Chip Calendar | Free Knitting Pattern


Hi, Guys I’m Kristen and Welcome to Studio Knit. Today, we are going to be making these Pantone Paint Chip DIY Calendars. 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 Pantone Swatch or Paint Chip Calendars on Pinterest and realized that a knitted version
would be really cool. In celebration of the New Year, I am designing a knitted calendar to schedule upcoming Studio Knit Videos! It’s shaping up to be an artsy
year! 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 and a Frame – 16” x 20” inches is ideal
for this project and Dry Erase Marker This is a great yarn busting project and a
useful home décor calendar to hang with pride! Links to my free Color Swatch knitting pattern, all knitting technique tutorials, and my Pinterest Board of calendar inspirations are in the
description below. Oh, and if you think this is a creative knitting idea that you’d like to try, please hit like to let me know you would like to see
more crafty DIY projects like this. To knit our color swatches, we will first
cast on nine stitches with our white yarn. And we will knit two rows.
Now switch to your color yarn and knit row three. Rows four through ten are in the K1, P1 Seed Stitch. Since we cast on an odd number of
stitches, K1, P1, we start that on every row. If you loose count while knitting, just count
7 rows of the seed stitch, and then you’ll know when it’s time to bind off. And the
bind off and weave in your ends. Once you have made 35 of these cute knitted swatches, arrange them in any way you chose. Write monthly calendar text with dry erase
marker. Mine is brand Sharpie, sized Medium, in the color White, it’s Water-Based Paint
Marker and it wipes away with a damped cloth to start the month anew. I hope you give this fun DIY project a try. And I wanted to let you know I’m participating in. It’s Kin Community’s ‘New Year, New You’ Collaboration. Along with my favorite
