Knit, knit as quick as you can!!! Because you’ll be wanting to make lots of these cute little gingerbread men! Pop them in Christmas stockings, or add them to your tree decorations. You could tie them onto to gifts, wouldn’t one be a great embellishment on a box of home- made gingerbread men?

His head, body and legs are knitted flat in one piece. Simple increases are used to shape the tops of the arms. The arm stitches are then slipped onto stitch holders whilst you knit the body and legs.

I guide you through every line so confident beginners will be able to make this toy.

Placement stitches show you exactly where to position the eyes and full alternative instructions are included for embroidered eyes/ buttons.

Check the recommended needle size for your yarn and use a needle 1 size smaller. This will give a close textured stocking stitch which will hold its shape well when stuffed
