Standing 5" tall, Mary and Joseph are just the right size for little hands to hold. This set would make a wonderful keepsake handmade heirloom for any family to be used year after year!

As a Mom with a 3 and 9 year old, I appreciate crochet projects which are both cute and functional. This design was weeks in the making and I'm hoping you love it as much as all the kids around us do!

  • Crochet hook size G6/4.0mm
