PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for a PDF crochet pattern which can be used to make the pictured item, not the actual finished item. You will be able to download your pattern directly from Etsy immediately after purchase.
This pattern is written in English and uses standard American crochet terminology. No other versions of the pattern are available (no graphs, videos or translations.)

As charming and heartwarming as a Victorian Christmas carol, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen is a nostalgic vignette of Yuletide joy. You can almost hear Charles' and Emily' voices raised in song, wishing a joyous and Merry Christmas to all!

This is the eighth of my Lovely Ladies Doilies series, and the first (but certainly not the last!) to feature a male figure. Designing Charles has given me so many wonderful ideas for future doilies; I want to design everything from Prince Charming to Rhett Butler! My only problem is deciding which one to make first!

This pattern is in PDF format so you will need to be able to open Adobe Acrobat, and prints out to 10 pages. I use a large font for easier reading and add lots of pictures.

As a special thank you for purchasing this pattern, I will be including the pdf pattern for the sweet little Littlest Angels as a gift with each purchase. These dainty little darlings make lovely ornaments for your tree, but you can place them anywhere you would like to add a touch of Christmas cheer!
I will also include a copy of a tutorial on how to make an Eyelet Foundation, which is used in the doily pattern.

Additional Information:
Skill Level: Intermediate. This is a clearly written and easy to follow pattern, but intermediate level crochet knowledge is recommended. Instructions for special stitches are included. All my patterns are written in English and use standard American crochet terms.
