Jolly Wee Elf--Rowan Fine Tweed Version

Jolly Wee Elf--Rowan Fine Tweed Version

"Have your Elf a merry little Christmas."
We rounded up our favorite, festive elf-friendly colors of Rowan Fine Tweed and packaged them in a clear drawstring bag containing one skein each of the main color, scarf color, face color, as well as 10 washers and a darning needle. (Note: $7 pattern sold separately so you don't have to keep buying the pattern again with each package.)

One Rowan Fine Tweed package is enough to make a wee tribe of 10 elves: 5 each in reverse color combinations of suits and scarves.

If we run out of the face color (360 Arncliffe), you can make elves by substituting another color for the face (like the faintly taupe 361 Bedale, or other cute options). Here's how you do it:

On this page, load the pattern (if you don't already own it) and the package with the washers (used as weights for the bottom) and darning needle. Then click on over to our Rowan Fine Tweed yarn page and choose your face color and two others. Then start knitting your wee pals!
