About this pattern

We use USA terminology in this pattern (don't worry if you use UK terms, all the differences are explained in the pattern).

This pattern is easy to follow with step-by-step instructions (pages with detailed instructions, tips, photos illustrating the process)

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Finished size approx. 38 cm (15 inches) high.


  • Any red, pink, bright green and a little bit of brown yarn you like for main parts. I used VITA cotton 'Coco' (100% mercerized cotton ? 240 m ?50 g).
  • Some white fuzzy yarn for finishing sleeves, cap and hem of the coat. I used ALPINA Baby (53% polyester, 47% bamboo, ? 210 m ? 50 g).
  • Leftovers of fuzzy yarn for the beard. I used NAZAR 'Swan's Down' (100% polyamide ? 170 m ? 100 g).
  • Steel hooks. I use - 1 mm (US steel hook - 12; UK Steel hook - 6.5) for main yarn, 1,5 mm (US steel hook - 8; UK Steel hook - 4.5) for fuzzy yarn and 3,5 mm (US steel hook - 00; UK Steel hook - No) for the beard.
  • Any stuffing.
  • Copper wire covered with plastic (you have to be able to bend it with hands, but it has to keep the shape). Amount depends of your yarn (I used a bit more than 90 cm of wire 3 mm).
  • Plaster - adhesive-backed fabric tape 1-1.5 cm wide to work up the wire cuts (the tape you use to cover wounds (first aid)) and to join wire frame.
  • 2 plastic eyes 0,7 cm diameter
  • Glue for eyes
  • Leftovers of black yarn for embroidery. I used Iris.
  • 2 green buttons 1.2 mm diameter
  • White sewing thread to sew the beard
  • Sewing needle, tapestry needle
  • Wooden stick to stuff tight places
  • Beads of different color for decorating the Christmas tree
