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. HINTS AND TIPS to help you with this pattern are available on my blog this is mentioned in the pattern.

I'm an expat Brit living in the San Francisco Bay Area and a stay at home Mum. I'm also an avid knitter with many ideas for interesting designs using unusual construction and techniques. My Mum taught me to knit when I was 7 years old, I thought I'd forgotten it but when I came back to knitting 7 years ago I discovered that it was all still there. I love to knit in 3D and around corners, so I use knitting in the round and short row shaping in many of my designs. I'd also prefer not to sew lots of pieces together, so my knitted toy designs have as little sewing as I can manage.
