This pattern is called Natural Nativity on Alan Dart’s website. It is the second nativity pattern available on the website. The pattern was previously published in Irresistible Gifts to Knit as Christmas Wishes and does NOT include a stable.

Sizes: Figures are 13 cm/5 inches tall.

Includes: Mary and Baby Jesus, Joseph, angel, two shepherds, three kings, sheep, donkey, camel

Other versions:

  • The Nativity Collection, published by Sirdar, has much larger, more detailed figures.
  • A slightly different Nativity set, originally published in Woman’s Weekly and now available on Alan Dart’s website, has slightly smaller figures, does not include the camel, uses a more varied color palette, and adds a knitted stable. The figures look very similar.
