What you need to know

Knit an everlasting yule log and robin with Susie Johns’ traditional decoration

This delightful yule log is neither to be eaten nor put on the fire, but knitted and admired for years to come, and we’re sure it will be too. The log and base are really simple to make, while the robin is a bit more detailed.

He’s mostly knitted in the round and the legs are made from wire wrapped with yarn. We suggest using florists’ wire for this as it’s easy to bend. He’d also make a great decoration in his own right!
