What you need to know

Also known as the king of the North Pole, Santa is something of an important figure in the Christmas Eve present-giving proceedings. This version is made using DK yarn and simple stitches, so he's well suited to novice knitters looking to have a go at changing colour, shaping and eyelet (see our Easy Eyelets panel). Choose a fleecy, textured yarn to add a realistic touch to Santa's beard and don't forget his bag of gifts for all the good knitters this Christmas Day.

Don't forget to save your PDFs to your computer or tablet device as soon as it has been downloaded.
