I got the patterns for the snowman and reindeer from "Christmas Gifts and Decorations" that came free with KnitToday magazine. But I created the Santa using the base pattern of the snowman/reindeer but altered it enough for mister Claus!
I knit his nose in the same way, but on a smaller scale. I also crocheted his beard, in a novice like fashion.
These guys are all knitted from my odd balls of yarn. The reindeer is actually a very dark brown with felt antlers and eyes.
The snowman is knitted in 3 different types of white yarn! his head/body is a yarn spun with a shimmery thread through it, his hat trim is a fluffy yarn, bit like sidar snowflake, but a smaller brand, and his scarf is a simple DK.
The reindeer's scarf was knit in the round whereas the snowman's was knit flat in garter stitch.
