Pattern Description:

These two little festive folk are only 3" high, but Tiny Santa still has a big beard and Christmas Fairy has knitted wings. They are both perfect for Christmas tree decorations or stocking stuffers.

For an INTERMEDIATE knitter because the construction uses interesting techniques such as short row shaping and 3 needle join (both explained in the pattern). There is some flat knitting and some in the round, but very little sewing.
