Christmas in July: Winter Elf Knitting Pattern

 

winter elf Collage

Are you celebrating Christmas in July? Here is a pattern for a cute little ‪#‎handmade‬ gift you can ‪#‎knit‬ http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/winter-elf-on-a-shelf

A cute Winter Elf who can sit on the shelf until the children notice it and invite it to join in their play! If you make this little Christmas charmer, it is sure to be treasured for many years. I’d love to see your photos–please link to my pattern on your project page.

The pattern includes many photos to help you make this little elf for someone special. The legs, body, head and hat are knit in one piece then seamed up the centre back. The arms and trim are worked separately then sewn on.

Only small amounts of yarn are needed. I used worsted weight with 4 mm needles, and my Elves are about eleven and a half inches long. If you used fingering weight yarn and smaller needles, your elf would be a cute pocket pal. As with most toys, gauge is not critical–but it is important to work tightly so the stuffing doesn’t show.

I ALSO MAKE THESE LITTLE ELVES–CUSTOM ORDERS WELCOME! JUST $9.50 EACH OR 2 FOR $15.00 PLUS ACTUAL SHIPPING COSTS.  CONTACT ME WITH YOUR PAYPAL EMAIL AND POSTAL ADDRESS SO I CAN SEND YOU AN INVOICE.  CUSTOM ORDERS CURRENTLY BEING MAILED OUT ABOUT A WEEK AFTER PLACING THE ORDER FOR THIS OR OTHER ITEMS.

Please ask for help if you don’t understand part of the pattern, and contact me if you find errors. You can contact me here or on Ravelry.

EGGSES Ragdoll Cat & Patchy Friend

Ragdoll Cat & Patchy Friend pattern photo

 

CLICK ON PHOTO TO PURCHASE CROCHET PDF PATTERN $3.95

NO REFUNDS ON PATTERNS!

Inspired by that wonderful Canadian children’s show, Toopy and Binoo, I am delighted to present the latest EGGSES crochet pattern for a Ragdoll Cat and his Patchy Friend!  They take only very small amounts of yarn, small amounts of time, but provide many hours of enjoyment!  Though they are Egg Cosies, designed to keep your soft-boiled egg warm at the breakfast table or to keep your hardboiled lunchbox egg protected from bumps, they will also be popular as a toy!  You can make a stuffed toy egg to use as play food, and they also make marvelous pocket pals to take along and play with on car trips!

I will also be selling a few sets, which I will post on my Facebook Page–as well as other EGGSES sets! So be sure to check there if you are interested in purchasing some.

PATTERN ALSO AVAILABLE ON CRAFTSY, IF YOU PREFER TO PURCHASE THEREBUY ON CRAFTSY NOW

Downton Abbey shawls, Week 2

The new Week 2 clues for the knitted Downton Abbey Mystery KAL shawl were released Sunday. I spent a lot of time today choosing the stitches I’d use for my crocheted version, and figuring out how to work the increases in, etc.  Now I am crocheting them, to try to make sure everything works out correctly.

 EDIT:  I APOLOGISE FOR BEING LATE WITH DOWNTON ABBEY SHAWL POSTS/INSTRUCTIONS.  “LADY EDITH’S LONDON NIGHTS” WEEK 2 HAS BEEN POSTED, AND I HOPE TO SHARE “TEA WITH LADY GRANTHAM” WEEK 2, LATER TONIGHT.  I WILL ALWAYS POST THEM AS SOON AS I CAN.  I HOPE THAT YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THAT I AM AN OLDER WOMAN WITH CHRONIC ILLNESS, AND WHEN I AM NOT WELL I AM UNFORTUNATELY NOT ABLE TO SPEND THE MANY HOURS CROCHETING, KNITTING, WRITING, AND TYPING THAT A NEW PATTERN REQUIRES. I KNOW THIS IS UPSETTING FOR THOSE WHO ARE WAITING FOR NEW ROWS TO WORK, BUT IT IS SADLY BEYOND MY CONTROL–OF COURSE I NEVER WISH FOR THESE EXTENDED TIMES OF ILLNESS, AND CERTAINLY DO MY BEST TO GET BETTER QUICKLY SO I CAN CONTINUE ON MY FIBRE ADVENTURES AND SHARE THEM WITH YOU.

I have been having computer issues, on top of a few weeks of illness, and many of the patterns I’d hoped to have finished/for sale are in limbo. Computer problems are why the Week 1 shawl clues have not been put into pdf files.  However, I will be getting a new copy of Microsoft Office and as soon as it is installed, I will be able to get the Shawl clues into pdf files, which I know will make it easier for everyone to use.  I will also be able to get the new Fish Hat pattern finished, as well as several others!  Thanks, everyone who is waiting, for your patience.

I have been able to get one pattern ready, and it will be for sale tomorrow, with a link here on my blog as well as on its Ravelry page: the “Molesley’s Roadworks Cowl” is crocheted with 200g of worsted weight yarn and has fun, versatile, removable fringes.  Suitable for men or women, it is very quick to crochet, and uses a stitch I found in a Victorian baby sock design.
