Hand Knit Gingerbread Man

This sweet invention is going be just as popular as your Elf on the Shelf – minus the tattling.  Whether he ends up on the tree as a decoration, in the playroom with the other toys, or hanging from the chandelier, this Hand Knit Gingerbread Man is going to be a welcome addition to your home this holiday season.

About the Hand Knit Gingerbread Man Pattern

I have made this pattern beginner friendly by designing the entire project to be worked flat – that means that you need not get intimidated by those double pointed needles.  Becasue a gingerbread man has so many parts ( who knew, right?) the pattern may seem a bit longer than my usual ones.  Hang in there, and just follow along.  It will all turn out.  And this is a stash buster project!

Part of what makes this knitted scarf so awesome is the yarn itself.  I used a super bulky yarn and the one I have chosen, Patons Melody yarn in Pinky Girl is a show stopper.
