Ann Franklin’s gorgeous ‘knitivity’ includes all the characters from the classic scene, from the Holy Family to the three wise men bearing their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh – and even the trusty donkey who carried Mary to Bethlehem. Knitting these figures is a lovely way to evoke happy memories of school Christmas plays, and the set is sure to become a family heirloom to display every year.

However, a knitted nativity set isn’t so daunting with an easy-to-follow guide like Knitivity: Create Your Own Nativity Scene by Fiona Goble. You get instructions on how to make 16 hand-made nativity figurines, a cardboard cut-out manger, and a fold-out nativity backdrop. You can also look up knitting patterns online and download it instantly for less than ten dollars.

Knitivity heralds a fresh slant on the traditional nativity scene. Designed for people with all levels of knitting skill (each project is graded), it encourages all family members to contribute. A knitted Mary and Baby Jesus are designed with two options: choose which you like best or knit both so that you can change the scene. Patterns are also supplied for Joseph, Three Wise Men, Shepherds (with shepherd boy), Ass, Ox Sheep, Angel, and Star. All the figures are child-safe, and have modern, stylish designs, and there are paper templates for a charming stable and manger background. To make this so much more than just a knitting book, the story of each character is told alongside the knitting instructions, and the traditional Christmas narrative winds its way through the book alongside beautiful combinations of artwork and photography.

This is quite possibly the most fun I have had on a knitting project. I have just finished the complete set. I ended up purchasing yarn for the project as I didn't have any suitable scraps. I used Jamieson Shetland wool DK which comes in a host of vibrant colors. I plan to use the left-overs on some of Ms Goble's other delightful books. The figures are quite straightforward to knit and the sewing up and finishing took maybe an hour or two per figure.

I would like to note that there is a error in the pattern for the Ox. I have not been able to find an errata online. On page 39 the 2nd line that says "Work 9 rows in st st, beg with a K row" needs to be eliminated. The instructions should read
Next row: Bind off 5 sts, K to end [34 sts]
Next row: Bind off 5 sts pwise, K to end [29 sts]
Otherwise your Ox will look weird.
I also found that I needed more than 48 yards to knit the Ox, more like 60-70 yds.

I bought this book for my wife since she was looking for a new knitting project to work on (there are only so many sweaters and scarves you can use). She's about halfway through the project and has really been enjoying it. I can't speak with any real authority on the level of difficulty, but I haven't heard any cursing so it appears to be going well.

I am so pleased with this boo. Although I haven't completed a pattern from this book, I have started one. It may be a week before I can pick it up to work on it again and it is as tf I have been working on it all along Beginer knitters could do these patterns with minimal help from youtube or their local yarn shop. I am hoping to find similar books for other Biblical stories.

I have searched the craft stores and magazines for some time to find something similar to this Nativity Scene and Characters, and was never successful in finding anything quite so complete and unique! I know I'll have to start soon in order to have them all completed by Christmas 2014, but it should be quite a fun-filled experience. Fiona Goble has a wonderful way of explaining how to construct the figures, as well as encouraging one to use bits of yarn on-hand! The heavy cardboard background just added the icing to the cake for me!

I am a beginning knitter, & this was a super price for the book. The set would be a wonderful gift for children, since it would be unbreakable, and they could play with it. As kids, my brother and I always marched the wise men closer to Bethlehem each day, and baby Jesus didn't appear until Christmas Eve! It was lots of fun. I think it will be easy enough to construct the set, but I am concerned about working the small figures.

Great followup to Noahs Knits - you will want to have both books. And this is a fun project to work on with children who are interested in learning to knit and express their creativity. Get together with friends that knit and use the concept of a "book club" or "quilt square" of the month to create a fun group activity with them.

Lovely looking and quite complete with all the important characters. I would have liked a little more detail, maybe knit in a finer yarn, but I think my grandchildren will like them very well.
I've made two sets of the the family and the angel. The collection may take a few years to complete but I trust they will move down the generations. A few people have already said they look like heirlooms.
