Santa and Gnome



My Santa and Gnomes are quick to knit toys. You could use them to decorate your home for Christmas, or to hang on your tree.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making Santa and the gnome, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work a kfb increase and a k2tog decrease, change colours at the ends of a row (knit stripes) and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: The toys are approximately 13.5cm tall (not including the hats).
