Pattern description from Handknit Holidays: “Santa may get all the credit on Christmas Eve, but we know that behind nearly every great man, there’s a woman who’s really running the show. It’s time to give Mrs. Claus her due. After generations of keeping the elves in line, collating the Christmas lists, and baking enough cookies to feed and army, she’s honored here by Cindy Taylor in a very soft, very cuddle doll, compete with knitted-on high heeled boots and a choice of petticoats and dresses. Mrs. Claus does not scrimp on style.”
