Knitting pattern for Christmas Elf
This little, knitted Christmas Elf is designed to make children and Christmas-lovers happy throughout December. When you buy the pattern for this Christmas Elves from Önling, the money goes directly to a Danish foundation called 'Julemærkehjemmet', who helps vulnerable children out of bullying, loneliness and low self esteem.

The pattern describes both how to knit two slightly different elves. 

The Christmas elf is a quick and nice little knitting project. You can use the elves as a knitted Christmas decoration, as a surprise for a child or grandchild or as a decoration on Christmas presents. Decorate the elf with accessories and make a small elf universe or knit it exactly according to the pattern for a classic, Nordic elf expression.

Materials:
Knit with the yarn you have or find a knitting kit for a small elf in Önling No 20 here

The pattern is a PDF file. Immediately after purchase you will be able to download the pattern directly from the purchase confirmation page. You will also receive an e-mail with a link to your pattern, and the pattern will be available here at the site via your personal account - so remember to create an account :-) Read more about digital knitting patterns here.

The work of 'Julemærkehjemmet':
Too many children in Denmark are not thriving. They feel alone and left out. But no one deserves an everyday life filled with loneliness and stomach ache. When children come for a stay in a Julemærkehjem, they get help to find their strengths and build their self-esteem, so they can once again be part of communities. And they bring these new skills and habits home with them.

Julemærkehjem have existed for more than a 100 years, and they help almost 1000 children every year with a 10-week long stay, with the objective of improving their mental and physical health.

Elf sizing:
The size of the elf depends on the yarn you work with and whether you knit with one or two strands. In this yarn (No 20) the elf will be 13-15 cm / 5-7 inches tall (incl. hat) if you are knitting with 2 strands.

With 3 strands of Önling No 15 (kit for big elf) it is approx. 25 cm / 10 inches tall.  

Recommended needles:
You need to knit with needles that match the yarn you choose. For the yarn in this kit, needle 4-4.5 is recommended, if you knit with 2 threads.

This pattern is a digital file that will be available for download immediately after purchase.

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect.

Find our instructions for how to wash your knitwear here.

Washing instructions for your knitwear
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
