Jean Greenhowe's Christmas Special (28 pages)
This booklet is packed with exciting seasonal designs, all guaranteed to set your needles clicking. Jean's classic Christmas Crib beautifully illustrates the story of the Nativity. The scene includes Baby Jesus in the manger, Mary and Joseph, The Three Wise Men, shepherds and sheep.
All the crib figures are extremely easy to knit. The basis for each standing figure is a tube-shaped piece of knitting and when the sleeves and other garments are added, the end result is perfection.
Mary is a superbly designed seated figure, requiring only two basic knitted pieces - one for the skirt and one for the bodice and head. When you knit this figure you will really appreciate the clever way in which it is constructed.The standing figures are 20cm (8in) in height and Mary measures 14cm (5½ in).
By popular demand Jean has also created a donkey for the crib, which is featured in Jean's other Christmas publication - Christmas Treasures.
