Santa And Mrs Claus are getting ready for a very busy Christmas Eve. Santa’s sack is full to bursting with toys and games for all the children to enjoy.
Mrs Claus loves to knit, she’s busy making a warm scarf for Santa to wear when he’s out on Christmas Eve delivering gifts. She’s wearing an apron, so she doesn’t get spoil her dress, when she’s making hot chocolate for all the Elves. She makes the very best Hot Chocolate ever!
Santa and Mrs Claus make a wonderful team, preparing for Christmas Eve keeps them both busy all year
Bitsy doll bodies and heads are knitted in one piece and after seaming and stuffing the legs are created by sewing a seam through from front to back to divide the legs. The arms are knitted separately and are sewn on when making up these cute little characters.
This pattern is suitable for confident beginners- All the doll and accessory pieces are knitted flat and use basic shaping. Picking up stitches and yarn overs are used in the skirt section

What others have made
My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
