A while ago I knitted this corgi love wall art, along with another few random creations. At the time I had sketched an alternative option for this one, featuring the Queen’s jewels instead of a heart. Follow the free pattern below and make your very own corgi wall art!
- Pair of 4mm (US 6) straight knitting needles
- DK yarn in green, rust, blue, yellow, black & white (I used King Cole Merino Blend DK)
- Tapestry needle
- 4′ x 6’ photo frame (10x15cm)
- All-purpose glue
39 stitches and 29 rows to 15x10cm rectangle in stocking stitch on 4mm (US size 6) needles.
- Cast on 39 stitches using green yarn and 4mm needles.
- Starting from the bottom of the chart, knit in stocking stitch (knit one row, purl one row, repeat the last 2 rows) using the Intarsia technique. You might want to use the Fairisle technique to knit the ‘v’ pattern in the top half of the chart.
- You will need a separate ball/strand of yarn for each colour change in the chart (except ‘v’). To switch colour, twist the yarns at the back of your work to keep it together and prevent holes.
- Once you have worked all 29 rows, cast off and weave in the ends (roughly – nobody’s going to see the back!).
- Block your work.
- Glue your knitted piece to the backing board of your frame.
