Product details

These traditionally styled Nutcracker Soldier dolls stand smartly to attention, ready to make vintage style center piece on your festive shelf or hang decoratively from your Christmas tree.

These dolls are quick and easy projects, suitable for confident beginners.

The Nutcrackers are knitted flat using basic stitches.

18 photos guide you through making up and finishing your decorations. I also include alternative detailed instructions for embroidered eyes.

The same Instructions are used for all three sizes, the large (16cm /6.25”) and midsize dolls (16cm /6.25”) use different size needles and DK yarn, the smallest version -(14cm /5.5”) uses 4ply yarn and 2.00mm (UK 14 /US 0) needles.

This smallest size is ideal for decorations to hang on your Christmas tree.

The midsize and smallest dolls use less than 10g of each colour for each Nutcracker ornament, making this great stash busting project. The largest size use approx 15g each main colour

Please note main images are smallest doll (4ply)
