In a moment of Christmas madness, I’ve decided to create my own advent calendar of free knitting patterns for mini Santa sacks. Although they don’t have to be so mini if you knit them in a thicker yarn. I’m knitting mine in our Shetland/Ryeland four ply and they’re knitting up at approx 2.25″ (5.5cm) x 3.25″ (8cm).
These mini Santa sacks make the perfect wrapping for small gifts, great Christmas tree ornaments, or, if you knit them all and save them up, you could make an advent calendar with them next year.
As you can see, the first one has a traditional snowflake motif. You can find the pattern here. If you knit them up, please do share pictures of them – our Ravelry page is here, and we’re here on Facebook.
Hope you I’ve designed one you’ll like.
