Description from book:
I wanted to include one holiday toy in the collection, and this Santa set is it. Knitters love creating special piece for Christmas and many do it all year round. Cast on for this in time to have it done by December, then watch the smiles when you bring it out!

This Santa is beautifully crafted, with wonderful detail, and the kids can play with him all they want; he can’t break. The gift bag is a cute addition, ideal for tossing around or for imagining what might be inside. The tiny Christmas mouse is the tag-along seasonal friend, the perfect stocking stuffer. If you add a loop on top, he can even be an ornament for the tree.

You can’t go wrong investing in this sweet set that will be cherished and enjoyed for many years to come. Ho, ho, ho!
