    This little Elf is one of four Christmas-themed patterns which I have had a lot of fun making. It is intended to be made by a fairly experienced knitter who is used to using DPNs, as the small size makes it unsuitable for circular needles. The three-page pattern might seem a bit complex to start with, but once you get going each little Santa's Elf takes about an hour to make, using just a few oddments of yarn which you probably already have in your stash, and a very small amount of toy stuffing.

    Materials you need at home:

    Materials: * Four 2.5 mm double-ended needles. As this is such a small item, it has to be made on separate DPNs rather than a circular one. * One tapestry sewing needle. * Oddments of DK yarn in green, peach, white, red and black. * A tiny button, about 1/2 cm or 1/4 inch across. The ones used to button down men's shirt collars are ideal * Small amount of toy stuffing. * Gold keyring with chain, or a loop of ribbon or cord if making a decoration. * Optional: Superglue, gold paint
