Bitsy Baby Elf is ready to help on Christmas Eve.

Although she’s only small, Bitsy Elf is working hard, filling lots of stockings for children to enjoy, early on Christmas morning.

Bitsy Elf’s stocking is just big enough to contain a little gift-or maybe a candy a cane?

Bitsy Elf is quick and easy to make. She’s an ideal last-minute Christmas decoration or gift.

Her body and head are knitted in one piece and after seaming and stuffing the legs are created by sewing a seam through from front to back to divide the legs. The arms are knitted separately and are sewn on when making up this cute little character.

This pattern is suitable for confident beginners- All the doll and accessory pieces are knitted flat and use basic shaping.
Picking up stitches and yarn overs are used in the skirt section
Bitsy Elf’s hat is knitted flat and shaped with basic decreases

The Christmas stocking is knitted flat with a few, very simple short rows to shape the heel. It is then seamed down the back and under the foot.

Size-14cm /5.5”- Just the right size to fit in a pocket!

Check the recommended needle size for your yarn and use a needle 1 size smaller.
This will give a close textured stocking stitch which will hold its shape well when stuffed

Tension - 20sts x 26 rows = 10cm (4”) Square

Recommended yarn: - Paint Box Yarns Simply DK Or Stylecraft Special Knit DK
