All around the world, the winter holidays are reflected in the spirit of the Nutcracker ballet. No character fills the hearts of young and old alike with more ecstasy than the Sugar Plum Fairy, lady of the Land of Sweets. Bring some sweet holiday fantasy to your home this season, with our knitted Sugar Plum figurine.
Worked in the round and almost completely seamlessly, the Sugar Plum Fairy is a toy knitter’s dream project -- and a perfect gift for the little ballerina in your life. With five photo tutorials to help you along, including a step-by-step tutorial for working her pretty bun hair…this project will be a cinch, even for a less experienced knitter.
You can also knit up an easy doll stand, so that your Sugar Plum Fairy can be part of your holiday displays. A detailed photo tutorial will walk you through the steps to make your stand perfect. Ideal for any knitted doll, once you have the pattern, you can whip up stands for all your creations!
