Linen was the most popular material used for Ancient Egyptian clothing. It was comfortable & kept the wearer cool, due to the desert heat.
 
Clothes were decorated with jewels, regardless of social standing. Those who could not afford jewels would use coloured stones or coloured pottery beads.
 
Women wore lots of jewellery - necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets & neck collars.
 
Egyptians did not wear shoes, they mostly went about their day bare footed. However, they did wear sandals on special occasions.
 
I have used a soft baby wool for the dress & cape. This seems to fit well to the body. I have used Gutermann Metalic Thread for the collar, head piece, waist sash & bracelets.
 
I have used Sirdar Snuggly DK, Hayfield Bonus DK & Anchor Artiste Metallic Thread -Gold &
Red - this knits as 3ply wool.

In Sweden, St. Lucia's Day (St. Lucy), is celebrated on December 13th. When monks arrived in Sweden, they brought Christianity stories. St. Lucia was a 3rd century martyr. Her story told how she brought food & aid to Christians. She used a candle lit wreath to light her way, to leave her hands free in order to carry as much food as possible.
The beginnings of the Scandinavian nisse (pixies) started in the 18th & 19th centuries. I remember my friend's father telling me that they were little spirits who looked after a family or a farm. They lived under the house's stilts or lived in the barns doing chores on the farm. The family had to look after the Nisse well. Porridge was to be left out every Christmas Eve for the nisse. If not this would bring bad luck. From the mid 1800's the nisse became associated with Christmas, arriving at the front door on Christmas Eve with presents.

These dolls can be used as toys, be hung on a Christmas tree or be used as part of a Christmas display.

I have used Hayfield Bonus DK.

St. Lucia is wearing an all white dress, with a red sash and green head dress.
The Christmas Elf has a red and white dress, complete with an apron and hat. She is all ready to start her Christmas baking!

The Carol Singer is based on a Victorian Dress, with a green full skirted dress, white bonnet and a red carol book.

I have dressed the pegs in the colours of Christmas - red, white and green. They are very simple to make and do not take very long to knit up.

These can be made as toys, Christmas gifts or ornaments. You could make a Christmas scene of Christmas Carol Singers.

I have used Hayfield Bonus DK.

The body and head are knitted all in one. There is no fiddly moments, trying to sew a head onto a body, making sure it is straight! I have tried to make this pattern as simple as possible, as I find sewing heads onto toys quite daunting.
Mr. Peppermint is knitted in green and yellow, with a belt, buckle and bow tie.

Mrs. Peppermint is knitted in red and white with a skirt, collar and waistband.

I have used Hayfield Bonus DK.
