Item details

Are you looking for an heirloom project to pass down and use each Christmas? Then I hope you'll consider making my Cuddle Bug Kids nativity set! Looking for a project to wow your friends and family? Here it is!

I put my heart and energy into each character and animal design. Each design took 6-10 hours to design and another 4-6 hours to re-create and pattern test. I'm super excited to be able to share this design with the world for others to make their own heirloom crochet nativity set!


This is the complete set of patterns at a reduced price - family, sheep and shepherds, kings, and the animals. You can also find the individual sets and other Cuddle Bug Kid patterns at

Each of these patterns has been written in standard American crochet terms and is appropriate for intermediate to advanced crocheters who are able to read a crochet pattern and access tutorials should a stitch be unfamiliar.

The last photo gives you a feel for the size of the characters. The 3 kings stand 6" tall. All the yarns used for the people are acrylics to help with durability. The sheep and the camel use some animal fibers. All yarns and yardages are included in the patterns as well as photos for any seaming together which might be a question. Please do consider making this set! It's super cute!

    Awesome!!! I have finished several figures and they came out beautifully. They will make nice gifts but one is for me.
