Pattern Notes

This sweet little basic Nativity just begs to be touched and played with. These small figures are perfect for placement within reach of little people learning about the true meaning of Christmas. 😊

Mary and Joseph stand at 7”/ 18 cm tall and baby Jesus is 3.5”/ 9 cm long. All figures are worked in the round, the blanket and cloaks are worked flat, and the halo and cloak closures are worked as i-cords.
