The Design

"C’mon, get jolly!"

Our Jolly Wee Elves have gained a Jolly Great friend! We’ve created a free adaptation to our original pattern so you can knit this big buddy. Just the right size for a hug, this scaled-up version of our little hand-knit pals is so fun to make—and quite quick with big yarns and big needles!

We’ve knit the Jolly Great Elf in super-chunky-weight Crazy Sexy Wool from Wool and the Gang. A single ply of plump Peruvian wool, Crazy Sexy Wool is soft, squishy, stretchy—and so fun on your needles. Plus, Wool and the Gang sources this cozy yarn from happy South American sheep, with consideration to reduce the impact on the environment. And with a great palette of richy saturated hues, you can go crazy with your colorwork!
