Count down to Christmas with Santa Claus. Santa starts at the front door on December 1st, then makes his way up the house until he gets to the chimney on Christmas. This finished countdown measures approximately 20½ inches wide by 35½ inches long.

Be sure you read through all of the instructions before you begin. This pattern is written by me, a left-handed person, but can be easily made by a right-handed person as well. The photos will be backwards for right-handed people, but it shouldn’t be a problem if you just remember that you’re working in the opposite direction.

Materials needed:
Any worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver. I used 2 skeins of the red for the house, 1 skein of each other color.
The colors I used were:
• Cherry Red
• Charcoal
• White
• Light Blue
• Tea Leaf
• Burgundy
• Buff
• Paddy Green
J (6mm) crochet hook (for the graphs)
G (4mm) crochet hook (for the appliques and Santa)
Yarn needle
10 mm safety eyes
½ inch wooden dowel
Foam numbers or foam sheets to cut numbers out of

This is a graphgan made using a modified bobble stitch. If you’ve never made a graphgan before, I give instructions with photographs in the pattern. Knowledge of graphgans and the bobble stitch are beneficial before starting this pattern.
