There are lots of exciting knitting magazine issues out now. Exciting for me because they have many of my patterns.
Knit Now has my knitted Nativity.
I have many sets of Nativity dolls made with different materials. These dolls are finger puppets. I thought it would be nice if children could play theatre with the figures.
The set includes Mary and baby Jesus, Joseph, three wise men, three shepherds, ox, sheep and donkey. I got carried away and made more than enough for both hands. The pattern is running in two issues. Both should be out now. Some figures share the basic body pattern so it is not too complicated.
Part 1 is this
and part 2
It is a bit of a shame that you can’t see the animals too clear in this photo.
I like the human figures, but I like the animal puppets very much. They stayed on my table for a while and kept me company.
They can stand on their own. You can stuff the body with stuffing and enjoy as Christmas ornament or put them on peg doll stands.
The new Knit Now magazine also has an exciting free gift with my patterns. I would like to share the news in the next post.
Oh, I was almost forgetting. This pattern is out from Woman’s Weekly now.
The outfits are removable. You get both boy and girl bear patterns.
The commission included the nighties like these.
Sadly, there was no space for the nightie patterns. You can get them from the magazine’s website. The information is included in the article.
I just bought a copy. The issue will be replaced with a new one tomorrow, so hurry!
