A Knitted Fairy Topper for Christmas – c. December 1952

A knitted fairy topper for the Christmas tree instead of an angel? Why not?
(And did you know it’s only 6 weeks to Christmas  – I’ve just had a mild panic attack thinking of all the things I need to make between now and then).

This pattern for a Christmas fairy doll comes from Needlework Illustrated December 1952, and is one of a few Xmas-themed patterns I’ll be sharing between now and the 25th December.

The fairy is knitted in 3-ply fingering weight wool, on 3.75mm needles.

    Oh my word, she is sooo fantastically cute!!! I wonder, would she work as a brooch or hair accessory as well? (Possibly scaled down in size a touch.)

    You share the best patterns, dear Bex. Thank you! (I'm not a knitter, but I know some folks who are and will definitely be sharing this with them.)
