Puffing through the forest, the ubiquitous steam train carries excited passengers on a windy, bumpy ride to visit Santa Claus or maybe pick out the family Christmas tree. Hot cocoa anyone?

Train lovers of all ages will appreciate the train motif which includes the engine, coal car, coach car and a caboose.

Knit top-down in the round, Steamer Train begins with corrugated ribbing then moves to a stranded stockinette body. All motifs are charted. Fit with an after-thought heel, wedge toe and I-cord hanger.

Some floats on the train are long but worth it!
