This pattern is a Christmas 2014 freebie from Phoenixknits – enjoy :O)

Bootsie’s body is 5 inches/12.5cm high to the top of his hat and 10 inches/25.5cm in diameter. His arms and legs can be as long or short as you wish, my Bootsie has arms – including mittens 5inches/12.5cm long and legs including boots, are 7 inches/18cm long. I have left him pretty basic, so you can add your own personal touches.
At the end of the pattern you will find a printable ‘Happy Holiday’ banner if you wish to use that.
