Santa's Laundry

Yes, this was another unfinished project!  I started it last year and ran out of time before Christmas arrived, so it was consigned to a bag until I finally got round to getting my knitting needles out again.

As everyone knows, Santa wants to look his best for his big day, so his clothes have to be clean and ready to wear.  Nice shiny black buttons and pristine white fur trim on his jacket.

Coordinating trousers with a drawstring waist for the times when he over-indulges in the mince pies!
The whole outfit includes long-johns, striped socks and a wool hat with a fur trim and bobble.

This pattern was for hanging tree ornaments, but I thought that it would look good if I use some bakers' twine in red and white and buy some mini clothes pegs, then I can string Santa's washing up to dry..


  1. Oh, how sweet, socks and long johns too, they would look wonderful on a clothes line and hung like bunting:)

  2. Hi Rosie - that was the idea, though I haven't managed to find any miniature clothes' pegs as yet. Marie x
