“While shepherds watched their flocks by night…” Recreate the story of the shepherds who, on a cold winter’s night, were the first to see the bright star shining in the east. With their staffs, the shepherds are a perfect size for young children to play with and enjoy, and learn about the greatest story ever told. The figures also make a lovely festive decoration, which can be displayed and enjoyed year after year. Part of the Knitables Nativity Collection!

These characters can be made cheaply out of oddments of double knitting yarn. The knitting pattern has clear row by row instructions and lots of photographs to help you along the way. You will need to be able to knit, purl, cast on and off, increase and decrease, change colours and sew seams. All pieces are knitted flat on straight needles. So why not add some festive cheer to your home and start knitting today!
