Christmas Treasures by Jean Greenhowe
Jean Greenhowe has been designing and publishing her distinctive patterns for many years. Her beautifully detailed dolls and toys all look so much more complicated than they are - if you can knit, purl, increase and decrease you can make her designs. All patterns use standard DK yarn, with some requiring small amounts of a number of shades, so they an excellent way to use up the oddments that every knitter has tucked away. Or why not try our own award winning Deramores Studio DK or Deramores Baby DK. Christmas Treasures is the second collection of Christmas designs and includes gifts, dolls, decorations and novelties. Included are Carol Singers in Victorian-style costumes about 26cm (10¼in) tall, Eliza doll measuring 34cm (13½in), Jack and the snowman, both measuring 31cm (12¼in), and Hush-A-Bye-Baby measures 26cm (10¼in) in height. There are also patterns for Pixies 15cm (6in) high, Little Snow Folk measuring 13cm (5in), The Poppets – perfect for stocking fillers - measuring 12cm (4¾in) high, Christmas Napkin and Party Place Markers, and miniature ornamental hats measuring 10cm (4in) in diameter. And finally, The Donkey – created to go with the knitted Nativity which appears in Christmas Special by Jean Greenhowe. Also available: Christmas Special by Jean Greenhowe.
