Magical Santa Elf
Make your list and check it twice with the help of this whimsical little fellow. He’s wearing a very fetching pink and green outfit, but could easily be made in other colors to suit your holiday decorating tastes. Bright red and green, cranberry and pine, shades of white and cream, silver and gold— all these color schemes, along with gold or silver jingle bells as you wish, are beautiful for this adorable little guy. His jointed legs allow him to sit or stand. Skill level: intermediate. Pattern is in American terminology.
