Knitting – Gift Idea – Jolly Old Elves
This is a really cute, free pattern I used last Christmas with less than a year’s experience in knitting. I had no problems and thought they turned out well – something a little different from the usual holiday decorations. Here is the link: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jolly-old-elves
I used two difference sizes of yarn and needles to get two different sizes from the same pattern.
The larger elf (about 8 inches tall) was made with #4 worsted yarn and #5 circular needles.
The smaller elf (about 6 inches tall) was made with DK or sport weight yarn #3 and #3 circular needles.
I gave one to each of my daughters along with a gift card for a special Christmas morning gift.
