The Elf on the Shelf
Just hanging around waiting for the festivities to begin, this little elf decoration takes a total of only 85g/3 ozs yarn to make & could be an ideal stashbuster pattern for a stocking filler or home decoration for the coming season.
Elf is knitted in DK yarn throughout, in basic Stocking stitch, using the short row method for the main piece. All the pieces are worked on straight, single point needles.
Laid out flat, Elf measures 13 ins (33 cms).
I have used glittery metallic yarns for Elf's hat, tunic & shoes, but you could substitute any DK yarns you prefer.
The pattern is in PDF format on 7 pages, with row by row instructions & explanatory photos.
