What It's All About

The Jolly Wee Elf is a popular addition to our Holiday Knitting tradition here at River City Yarns. We've made a whole "village" of them over the past couple of years. Designed by our friends at Churchmouse Yarns and Tea, we'll take you through their step by step instructions to create a whimsical tree ornament or mantle/table decoration for the upcoming holiday season.

Like the wee elf, this workshop only takes a wee amount of time! You'll learn/review how to increase (KFB), pick up stitches, how to work short rows (W&T) and knit i-cord. We'll show you how to deal with ends when you change colours, "stuffing" your elf and weighting him/her for balance and finishing up with a few stitches for body definition. Your registration fee includes a Jolly Wee Elf kit (yarn, weight, stuffing) as well as an electronic copy of Churchmouse's Jolly Wee Elf pattern.

Skill Level

Students should know how to knit in the round on double pointed needles (dpns). We recommend taking the KITR: Seamless Hat class first if you haven't knit with dons before.

Please bring:

  • 3.25 mm double pointed needles (set of five) and a blunt tapestry needle


  • 4 hours of instruction. We guarantee you won't be able to stop at one elf!

  • Jolly Wee Elf kit (everything you need, except the needles!)

  • The Jolly Wee Elf pattern from Churchmouse Yarns & Tea (electronic version)
