It’s about time that I shared a couple more of my Christmas knitting projects. Both of these projects are from Jean Greenhowe‘s Christmas Special Pattern Book, from her last-minute patterns.
Available from Amazon
Firstly a Mini Santa… this is a simple toy which can be made in an evening from odds and ends. The hat is stitched at a jaunty angle and the knitted beard is very effective. He is currently keeping Ig the Snowman company by the fire.
The other little project was for my dear friend Ross, who needed a little Guardian Angel who I called Charis. Ross’s favourite colour is purple so is Charis’s which is good… here she is:
The wings make this little angel and they just use Garter Stitch and the hair is also very effective. When I make another I am going to play with giving her a nose… Not sure how at the moment
Both of these use 3mm needles and DK wool. The cheeks use a red drawing pencil.
Thanks for Reading – these are No 9 and No 10 on my Craft 2012 project.
