Pattern Description:

One of a series of three gorgeous little Christmas Gift Bags (Santa Sacks) designed as an alternative to a Christmas Stocking.
Each gift bag can be used as a scented sack filled with herbs and spices, or alternatively filled with chocolates and small gifts for little and large people to discover on Christmas morning.
Hang from the mantlepiece or display under the tree.
The pattern requires approx 15 Grams of Green and White DK yarn for one Gift Bag. A small quantity of polyester toy filling for the snowballs. One pair of 4mm (UK8-USA6) knitting needles and 4 x 4mm (UK8-USA6) Double pointed knitting needles. 1 stitch holder and 1 tapestry needle.
The knitting pattern is written and charted. Very quick to knit and because you need so little yarn it's a great stash busting project.
