How to make the face to the Santa jumper in DROPS Children 32-20

Tags: christmas, embroidery, jumpers,

In this DROPS video we show how to attach the beard, moustache and how we sew grafting stitches for the eyes in the Santa jumper in DROPS Children 32-20.

BEARD:
1 fringe= 1 strand of 45 cm using off-white. Cut 18 fringes.Each fringe is fastened above the purled stitch on the neck of the Santa. Fold the fringe double, thread the loop around the stitch, then thread the strand-ends through the loop and tighten. Fasten a similar fringe in each of the 17 remaining stitches over the purled stitch. Then tie a loose knot using all the strands; tie the knot approx. in the middle of the strands. Trim the beard to the required length.

MOUSTACHE:
1 fringe= 1 strand of 7 cm using off-white. Cut 8 fringes. Fold the fringes double and thread the loop around a stitch beneath a purled stitch on the face of Santa, then thread the strand-ends through the loop and tighten. Fasten a similar fringe beneath each of the purled stitches. Trim the moustache to the required length.

EYES:
Using a left-over of black, sew grafting stitches over 3 stitches and sew 1 stitch across the next stitch towards the middle.
We use the yarn DROPS Snow in the video.
