A yummy sweet gingerbread man! This little man is quick to knit, and great for stash busting as you only need small amounts of yarn to decorate your doll.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the gingerbread man, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases and sew seams. The white icing is added using Swiss darning embroidery.


  • Double knitting yarns (DK or light worsted weight) in brown, red and yellow
  • A pair of straight 3.75mm knitting needles (US 5)
  • Toy filling
  • Green buttons for the eyes
