This elf outfit pattern is part of the Knitables ‘Knit a Teddy’ collection. The ‘Knit a Teddy’ collection contains a selection of adorable animal teddies, cute outfits and fun accessories. Simply mix and match the teddies, outfits and accessories to create your perfect knitted teddy for that someone special!
This pattern includes a coat, stripy trousers, hat and a pair of elf shoes. As with all the patterns in my ‘Knit a Teddy’ collection, this outfit is completely interchangeable and will fit all the animal teddies in the range. Alternatively this outfit would also fit a 15” teddy bear!
The pattern has clear row by row instructions and lots of photographs to help you along the way. You will need to be able to knit, purl, cast on and off, increase and decrease, change colours and sew seams. All pieces are knitted flat on straight needles.
Please note this pattern is for the outfit only, it does NOT include the teddy!
