Female Christmas Elf Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

The female Christmas elves help Santa primarily in the assessment of the children, whether they were good or bad.

While the male elves have to travail in the toy factory, the female elves have to sift through thousands of hours of surveillance videos of the children, to make an objective judgement.

Life at the North Pole is no bed of roses for anyone, so adopt a female Christmas elf today, so that she can finally live a more relaxed life.

This crocheted Christmas Elf Girl is crocheted with chain stitches, slip stitches, single crochet stitches and half double crochet stitches in spiral rounds 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 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 5 to 6 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 centered under the eyes. To do this, pull the thread horizontally several times from one stitch through the next, skipping one stitch. Repeat until a thick nose forms.

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

DONE!
