The 1977 classic Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas is a favorite holiday movie for many, including me. I have warm fuzzy memories of watching it when I was little and now my kids can sing along to “Ma’s Barbecue” and “Ain’t no hole in the washtub”. The Riverbottom Nightmare Band has nothing on Emmet’s sweet washtub bass jugband!

Now you can crochet your own little Emmet and Ma Otter  just in time for Christmas. Emmet measures 10” tall, the perfect soft squishy size for hugging and carrying or just setting out for a super unique Christmas decoration. Ma is about 11" tall.

You’ll need easy to find yarns (all listed in the pattern by brand) and supplies, and only very simple stitches are used. Plenty of photos will help you along the way. You’ll need to know how to crochet in the round (I use the adjustable ring method to start), and single crochet, half double crochet, etc.

Any questions, let me know prior to purchase!
