Jesse is so pleased with his Snowman Christmas Sweater; he wants to wear it all the time!

Clothes
The Snowman motif is worked as charted Intarsia- alternatively it could easily be added using the Swiss darning technique. Black yarn is embroidered on afterwards to create the eyes, nose and buttons.

Jessie’s outfit is completed with a pair of trousers and shoes.

Doll
Jessie is knitted with head, body, legs and feet worked as one piece, there is a centre back seam from the crown of his head to the start of his legs. Jessie’s legs have a seam on the inner side and his feet have a seam along the middle of the sole. His arms and hands are knitted as one piece and sewn into place after stuffing.
