A simple colorwork piece, this wall hanging is worked flat from the top down to the point in textured stitches. Colorwork can be done entirely in intarsia, or the knitter can choose to carry the MC behind in smaller antler sections. The top edge is stitched down afterwards to create a sleeve to slip a rod or dowel into for display.

Colorwork tip: it’s easiest to work this piece in intarsia; you might want to use bobbins to
hold your lengths of yarn. This would be particularly helpful when working the antlers.
