Jolly Wee Elf--Rowan Tweed DK Version

Jolly Wee Elf--Rowan Tweed DK Version

"Be true to your elf."
We rounded up our favorite, festive elf-friendly colors of Rowan Tweed DK and packaged them in a clear drawstring bag containing one skein each of the main color, scarf color, face color, as well as 16 washers and a darning needle. (Note: $8 pattern sold separately so you don't have to keep buying the pattern again with each package.)

One Rowan Tweed DK package is enough to make a wee tribe of 8 elves: 4 each in reverse color combinations of suits and scarves. 

If we run out of the face color (580 Arncliffe), you can make elves by substituting another color for the face (like the faintly taupe 581 Bedale, or other cute options). Here's how you do it:

On this page, just add to your cart 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 Tweed DK yarn page and choose your face color and two others. Then start knitting your wee pals!

Approx. 4½" tall, or desired height.


3 skeins Rowan Tweed DK (129 yds/ 118m each): one each of two colors for main color (MC) and scarf color (SC); plus one skein for Face Color (FC).
Note: Makes approx. 8 elves (4 each in reverse color combinations of suits and scarves).
