Our Christmas Tree Elf
Our Christmas elf is super cute and full of character! He would look great displayed on a mantelpiece or hearth.
You will need:
DK yarn in beige, cream, red and green, a 3mm hook, 2 x 6mm safety eyes, toy stuffing, and a button for his nose. The plant pot (8cm x 6cm approx), ribbon and bell are optional!
Included in the pattern:
You will receive a downloadable pdf, including a detailed pattern to make the elf with photographs and clear instructions as well as a guide to amigurumi.
The elf is made using the amigurumi technique so you will need to be able to make a magic ring, double crochet stitches, increases and decreases. A guide to amigurumi is included in the pattern for those who are new to the technique. His hat is made using crocodile stitch. The pattern includes a photo tutorial to help you with this stitch.
The pattern is written in UK crochet terms.
The elf in the photo measures approx 20cm in length and has been made with Drops Lima yarn and a 3mm hook. If you use thicker yarn and a bigger hook your elf will turn out bigger.
