Some knitted Nativity stable patterns include the one in the book "Jean Greenhowe's Christmas Special" and the knitting pattern booklet "The Nativity Collection, Created by Alan Dart." As of 2015, both of these are available online for sale.
In "Jean Greenhowe's Christmas Special," knitters find all the patterns needed to knit the individual pieces of a nativity scene, including Mary, Joseph, the baby Jesus and many others. By special request, the book includes the pattern for a donkey to place beside the crib of Jesus.
"The Nativity Collection, Created by Alan Dart" includes patterns to knit people or animals from the nativity scene in DK yarn. The height of each figure ranges from 10 to 25 centimeters.
