From the Pattern Booklet:

“You can knit this pair of large dolls as cuddly toys of very special Christmas decorations. For display purposes, cardboard soles can be inserted in the feet so that the dolls will stand unsupported. If washable dolls are required, omit the cardboard soles. The dolls will look exactly the same with or without the soles.”

From the Wedsite:
Santa and Mrs Claus are a jolly pair of Christmas characters sure to become firm favourites with your family. Measuring about 34cm (13½in), make them as stand-up decorations, or cuddlesome toys.
