Pattern Description:

This crochet pattern is a brand new design for Christmas 2013! This set includes the patterns for a donkey, 3 travel bags (messenger, duffel, and canteens), and two camels - one sitting and one standing. The messenger and duffel bags are made with an open top so you can stick verses in them to compliment any advent activities your family may be doing. This nativity set is an awesome way to play through the story of the nativity with your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

As I pondered what playscape to make for my first LARGE design project, I settled on the nativity. I thought I'd love it for our children even if no one else ever purchased the patterns! Patterning this set has become a labor of love. Each animal/figure has taken 15-25 hours to pattern and has been through multiple iterations until I was in love with the final figures!
