Default Looking for a Santa Yarn decoration pattern

Hi everyone,

My friend is looking for an old pattern that she tossed out by mistake. It's
for a Santa Yarn decoration that she remembers the yarn is wound around a piece
of cardboard, you make ties for the legs and arms and neck. It's either put on
the tree or a pin is put in the back so you can wear it. I can see it in my
head, but I don't have the directions, so hope someone can help me.

Hugs,

Nora

I have made those, Nora. Not as a Santa, but as little dolls for the kiddies
in my Spark troop. I have never seen a pattern as such, but just done it by
guess and by golly.
To make a tiny one that could be worn as a brooch, you would want the
cardboard not much longer (wider) than two inches. Wrap the yarn around and
around - for something this small, I would say that 100 wraps would be
enough. Slip a piece of yarn between the yarn and the cardboard, and tie it
tightly. Cut the bottom of the wraps. Lay aside for a minute. This will be
the body/legs. Wrap more yarn around a slightly smaller piece of cardboard
about 30 wraps. This will be the arms.Cut both ends of these wraps, and tie
tightly, spreading the cut ends apart to make "hands". Go back to the body
piece. Tie a piece of yarn about 1/4 inch down from the tie. This is the
head. Separate the stringy yarn to fit the arms between. Tie below the arms.
You need another tie for the body. Then separate the remaining yarn into
legs, and tie each leg near the bottom to make the feet.
Hope this is not too confusing.
