    Thanks so much for this pattern! I couldn’t do the weekly KAL, being overwhelmed with other stuff, so this is perfect. I see a lot of these being knit as a new holiday tradition …

    Hello there! I’m a quilter and haven’t knitted in YEARS and then only plain hats and scarves… but you’re tiny elf is so inspiring, I just had to desert the quilting world for a while.

    I was stranded yesterday with 3 elf bodies with ears, but I had no clue what i-cord knitting is! Good thing the internet is so comprehensive when it comes to crafts! I’m now happily giving these three fellows legs, arms and hat-tips so they can move into their new dwellings at christmas time!

    Thanks so much for this free pattern – I didn’t know something so complicated looking could be so easy!

    Been having problems loading the PDF for this pattern, is it possible to get it sent to me or something?

    I can’t believe how easy you have made this! I’ve knitted for almost 55 years, but have never knitted on double pointed needles! I avoided all patterns using them. Thank god for youtube and watching ‘how to’ videos! After about an hour of practicing, I had it down.

    It took about 4 days to finish this elf! Now, I will make 3 more, one for each grandchild! Elf on the Shelf, now has a Nana Elf!

    Thank you, I can’t wait for December to come to give these to my daughters.
