Amigurumi Crochet Christmas Elf Pattern

The Christmas elf, Santa’s happy little helpers who work day in, day out to make our presents.

But the supposedly cheerful hustle and bustle at the North Pole also has its dark sides. Not only are the general working hours in the toy factory beyond any legal norm, but also the annual holiday of one day (at Christmas) has so far led to much resentment among the Christmas elves.

Help a Christmas elf today and crochet one for you at home where he can finally relax.

This crochet Christmas elf is crocheted with chain stitches, slip stitches, single crochet stitches and half double crochet stitches and is easy to crochet.

The depicted Amigurumi Christmas elf has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has sitting a height of 5.5 cm.

Assembling

Legs: After you’ve finished crocheting all pieces, start sewing the legs onto the body. Start sewing the first leg onto the body directly over the edge that was created by the round that was crocheted only into the back loop. Sew on the second leg 4 to 5 stitches left or right from the first leg, again just over the edge.

Arms: Sew the arms left and right onto the body, 1 stitch row under the “neck”. Do not sew the arms directly over the legs but slightly behind the legs.

Eyes: Attach the safety eyes after the 7th stitch row counting from the top center of the head. The eyes are 4 stitches apart from each other.

Nose: Embroider the nose with a Soft Apricot thread. Embroider the nose 2 stitch rows centered under the eyes. To do this, pull the yarn horizontally several times from one stitch through the next, skipping one stitch.

Eyebrows: Embroider the eyebrows with a black thread slightly angled above the eyes.

Hat: Place the hat with the hair onto the head of the elf. If necessary, the hat can also be sewn on.

DONE!
