Santa And Mrs Claus are getting ready for a very busy Christmas Eve. Santa’s sack is full of toys and games for all the children to enjoy.

Mrs Claus loves to knit, she’s busy making a warm scarf for Santa to wear when he’s out on Christmas Eve delivering gifts.
She’s wearing an apron, so she doesn’t get spoil her dress, when she’s making hot chocolate for all the Elves. She makes the very best Hot Chocolate ever!

Santa and Mrs Claus make a wonderful team, preparing for Christmas Eve keeps them both busy all year

Bitsy doll bodies and heads 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 these cute little characters.

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
