This Jean Greenhowe Christmas Special booklet instructs you how to knit a range of Christmas themed characters over 28 pages, complete with colourful illustrations throughout.

Each character can be made using double knitting wool and good quality, washable stuffing. The characters should be knitted up using 3mm (UK 11 - US 2) or 5mm (UK 6 - USA 8) knitting needles unless otherwise stated.

The characters and items this knitting book instructs you how to knit are as follows:

  • Santa and Mrs Claus.
  • Cinderella Topsy-Turvy Doll - once finished you can transform Cinderella from her rags into her ballgown simply by turning the skirt upside down.
  • Christmas Stockings in the following designs - Basic Stocking, Sports Stocking, Snowman Stocking, Buttoned Boot Stocking, Santa in the Chimney Stocking and Baby's First Christmas Stocking.
  • Best Friends - a polar bear and a reindeer complete with a bib, ice-cream cone and ice-lolly.
  • Christmas Crib - including Joseph, Mary, the Three Wise Men, shepherds, sheep, a baby and a manger.
  • Christmas Tree Trims - including a garland ring, christmas stocking, christmas tree, candy cane and a holly-trimmed bauble.
  • Mr and Mrs Frosty.
  • Little Robin Redbreast.
  • Last-minute Dolls - small stocking fillers including a toy soldier, snow man, a christmas elf, a christmas fairy, Santa and Mrs Claus.
  • A cosy muff in the shape of a snow covered log.
  • Three Tea-cosies in the style of Christmas puddings.

The measurements vary between characters but each pattern will inform you of the finished height and the amount of stuffing needed for each toy.

These toys are sure to be well loved by children and are fun to make for knitters.

These patterns should be suitable with most double knitting yarns however, tensions may vary and we recommend you knit a tension square before knitting the whole toy.

Please note that this is a knitting book and NOT a selection of finished knitted toys. All knitting instructions are written in English.
