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.
