          5 Jolly Santa Knitting Patterns

          Actions

          In our family, the Santa motto is that if you don't believe, you don't receive. You can bet I still believe in Santa! And what better way to display my allegiance than with plenty of Santa-themed holiday decor?

          Even though Santa is a traditional Christmas decoration, there are still plenty of ways to make yours unique. One of those ways is knitting your Santa. If you already have plenty of Santas hanging around, you can still incorporate things like Santa hats and gloves into the holiday.

          From decorative patterns like dolls to functional projects like gloves, here are a few knitting patterns on Bluprint that give a fun little nod to Santa Claus this season.

          Sandy's Santa

          This wide-eyed Santa looks like he's ready to eat a few dozen holiday cookies. The entire Santa is knit using DK-weight yarns, and you can use scrap yarns to make the embellishments. Bells, baubles and other tiny random decorations will also come in handy.

          Santa Hat Tea Cozy

          I think Santa would prefer a glass of milk over tea, but you can still pay tribute to him through tea. Give your teapot a temporary Christmas makeover with this Santa hat that slides right over it. It's also a great project for beginners who want to practice shaping skills like decreases .

          Santa Ornament

          Here's another pattern that uses up that valuable scrap yarn that's just hanging out in your craft space. The designer suggests using these cute little dolls for everything from catnip toys to decorations and holiday gifts. She also suggests knitting these up for charity since they use scrap yarn and don't cost too much money to make.

          Santa Fingerless Mitts

          Santa's tired of taking off his gloves every time he needs to pick up a cookie, so he's going fingerless this year. These gloves come in a range of sizes to fit anyone from kids to adults. It's a great way to show your love for Santa without donning the entire Santa suit, don't you think?

          Tiny Santa and Christmas Fairy

          This Santa and his fairy friend are tiny (3" high, to be exact), making them ideal Christmas ornaments. You could also just let them hang out on the mantle, attach them to a wreath, or use them as an embellishment on gift wrap. The pattern is best for intermediate knitters since there's some short-row shaping involved. Good news for knitters who hate seaming: most of the pattern is knit in the round, eliminating the need for seaming. Woo hoo!
