The majority of these Nativity characters were taken
from Jean Greenhowe patterns. Each one is based on a
basic figure, which is adapted with different
coloured cloaks, head-dresses and accessories.
The base is un-knitted; instead a circle of stiff card is inserted - I used mount board. This enables the characters to stand well.
