Pull as children might, Santa's beard will not come off (obviously because this is the real Santa Claus. Santa's coat is trimmed in white and he has a chunky black belt around his waist with a lemon buckle.

Ho Ho Ho! Ever wondered why Santa was podgey? It's because he is a tea belly!

Love it and easy to follow. Thanks. I knitted the belt, buckle & white stripe into the main pattern rather than separately. Also made the hat a bit smaller.
