27 Knitted Santa Sacks Pattern

It’s funny how things grow. Just under a year ago on 1st December 2016, on a whim, I decided to knit a different Santa sack and publish the pattern free on my blog for the 24 days of advent.Β  It was a great fun and, although I ended up posting two sacks on a couple of days when I got behind, I otherwise achieved my goal.

After Christmas I took a look at the patterns again and realised what a mess they were. I took them down planning on tidying them up ready for this year. I pretty much forgot about them until August – or maybe it was even September – when I decided to sort them out, ditch a few awful ones, design some new ones and publish them as a collection at the beginning of October.

However life had other ideas. I didn’t make the beginning of October, but finally after working on them for what currently feels like forever, I’ve just uploaded the PDF to Ravelry!

You can find the pattern here.

I’m also making a printed booklet available in the Dartmoor Yarn Company shop. But don’t go looking for it yet, because I haven’t finished putting that together yet.

    1. Thank you. It’s a lot more hard work than I though. Mind, the ravelry system was part of it. Not that the ravelry system is difficult or bad, just a learning curve. I seem to recall it was the Christmas pudding you liked best a few weeks ago, but I hadn’t finished the tree with the baubles at that stage.

    1. Thank you. So pleased you like them. No one has singled out the sleigh before and I do worry about the ones that aren’t my particular favourites – or other people’s favourites – so thank you for that. You can ask about the Christmas jumper πŸ™‚ Unfortunately (or maybe that’s fortunately) Hubby has been around mostly when I have time to knit, so I haven’t done many rows on the front. However it’s knitting group night tonight, so will get some done then πŸ™‚ And it WILL be finished in time for pre-Christmas.

      1. Am begining to feel for poor Hubby, can’t have him cold at Christmas. The sleigh is unique, not many designers have come up with that one to the best of my knowledge, so it really caught my eye.

      1. Actually, I couldn’t get your link to work, so am seeing if I can search for it and get to it. I was going to let you know when I found it, but why wait? πŸ€“

      2. Eek! Better see what’s wrong with that. Thanks for letting me know. And thanks for buying the pattern – notification’s just come through on my email πŸ™‚ So you obviously found it. Thank you! Hope you enjoy knitting them. Look forward to seeing pictures πŸ™‚

      3. Thanks again. Just checked it out and discovered it was because I changed the title to Christmas Santa sacks (from santa sacks) a couple of days after and the link on ravelry actually changes when you do that!
