Jesse is so pleased with his Snowman Christmas Sweater; he wants to wear it all the time!
The Snowman motif is worked as charted Intarsia- alternatively it could easily be added using the Swiss darning technique. Black yarn is embroidered on afterwards to create the eyes, nose and buttons.
Jessie’s outfit is completed with a pair of trousers and shoes.
Jessie is knitted with head, body, legs and feet worked as one piece, there is a centre back seam from the crown of his head to the start of his legs. Jessie’s legs have a seam on the inner side and his feet have a seam along the middle of the sole. His arms and hands are knitted as one piece and sewn into place after stuffing.

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.
