14 Santa Inspired Christmas Knitting Patterns

14 Santa Inspired Christmas Knitting Patterns

I know it's cliché, but Christmas really is my favorite time of the year. The air is cold enough for the first few snow falls, but warm enough where you can stay outside for longer than the walk to your car. You can pause and enjoy the moment, watch an individual snowflake drift down in front of you.

Twinkling lights illuminate nighttime drives. Children jump and laugh as they wait in breathless anticipation for Kris Kringle's visit. That really is what makes Christmas better than any other time of year. After all, is there anything better than laughing children?

Even as we grow up, Santa Claus stays a part of our Christmas in some way. He's portrayed on our wrapping paper, in our ornaments, sometimes you see him in the mall while shopping for Christmas gifts. Because of the joy Santa brings us, we've dedicated a collection of projects to him with our 14 Santa Inspired Christmas Knitting Patterns.
