JEAN GREENHOWE'S CHRISTMAS TREASURES KNITTING BOOKLET 40 PAGES
The Carol Singers Dressed in Victorian-style costume. The boy measures 26cm (10¼in), the girl is slightly smaller. Her crinoline skirt stands out beautifully, without any stiffening material, because a knitted petticoat gives the 'crinoline' effect.
Eliza is a knitted version of a Victorian penny wooden. She measures 34cm (13½in) and is a truly unique creation
Jack Frost can be made as a cuddly doll or a seasonal decoration. He measures 31cm (12¼in) in height without his cap. Jack's blue and white colour scheme reflects the wintry atmosphere, but of course like all Jean's dolls he has warm, rosy cheeks!
Mr Twizzle the snowman with his mis-matched and patched outfit, he is quite irresistible. Just look at that precarious 'slide' of knitted snow on his battered top hat and his odd mittens and socks. The same size as Jack Frost and based upon the same pattern, Mr Twizzle can turn into a party snowman when given a roomy knitted sack and Christmas stocking. Fill these with sweets, candy sticks and lollypops for the children.
Any little girl would love to wake up on Christmas morning and find Hush-A-Bye-Baby in her stocking. This is another of Jean's novelty surprise dolls. But she looks like an ordinary doll - so what is the surprise? Well, this darling dolly can be wide awake one minute and fast asleep the next, because the head has two faces and a pretty bonnet covers the reversed face. Hush-A-Bye-Baby measures 26cm (10¼in) in height.
The Pixie Patch shows a trio of impish characters having a happy time building a snow pixie. One has jumped inside a knitted plant pot while another has rolled a huge snowball. They all measure 15cm (6in) high.
The cute Little Snow Folk can be made as soft toys, stocking fillers or decorations. They all have Santa hats and bobble-trimmed scarves. Each one holds an accessory - a stocking, cracker and holly wreath, which can also be knitted as trims for a miniature tree. These characters measure 13cm (5in).
The Poppets - a Snowman, Santa, Scarecrow and Clown. These are unusual novelty dolls because nearly all the pieces are simply small knitted balls threaded onto lengths of yarn. Make them as stocking fillers, tree trims and mascots or fix them on a Christmas wreath. They measure 12cm (4¾in) high.
Napkin Rings decorated with holly leaves and berries. The basic ring is a strip cut off a plastic soft drinks bottle.
Party Place Markers. Measuring 8cm (3in) square, these little sacks will delight your guests when they discover they are filled with chocolates! Or why not fill the sacks with sweets as an ideal take-home gift for childrens' parties and Christmas events.
Four elegant miniature ornamental hats, which can also be made as pin cushions. The Four Seasons Hats measure 10cm (4in) in diameter and are trimmed with holly and feathers, tiny apples and flowers. Instructions are also given for hat stands so they can be displayed.
The Donkey - perhaps one of Jean's most requested designs ever. Does not include pattern for manger and Mary
