Just imagine your own " Santa's Little Helper" wearing this! This pattern is a new version of the skirt/cape pattern, but now with Santa's cap joined in from neck. This avoids lost caps and keeps your little elves warm and cosy while they do their work. Easily knitted in soft wool or wool blend, this will make a wonderful Winter gift. Many detailed photos included, and "step by step" instructions. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic knitting, sewing seams, Straight knitting on circular needle GAUGE My gauge for this was 21 stitches = 10 cm and 30 rows = 10 cm. Merino wool or Merino wool mixtures ( 3 balls/ 50 g = 105 m of RED color and 1 ball/ 50 g = 105 m of WHITE color). Yarn suitable for needles of size 3-4 mm, such as a quality sock yarn. I recommend a soft, flexible yarn, closely spun, for warmth and comfort.
