Heidi, Anneke & Ester - Julenissen Dolls - Christmas Elves - A Toy Knitting Pattern
These are my little Julenissen or Christmas Elf Dolls - Heidi, Anneke & Ester. They are knitted dolls and are 24cm tall, hat included.
They are inspired by time spent with a dear friend in Norway and the happy Christmas’s I shared with her as a child and adult. I wanted to recreate the traditional Julenissen, which is so dominant at Christmas time in Norway. The julenissen dolls all have a Norwegian name, chosen by my children.
I have used DK wool in the colours associated with Christmas: red & white. There are three designs; stripes, cheques and a Danish cross pattern.
These dolls can be used as toys, be hung on a Christmas tree or be used as part of a Christmas display.
