Amigurumi Santa Claus Crochet Pattern

Santa Claus, the most reliable gift supplier in the world. He is the role model for all major suppliers and logistic experts and is still the undisputed leader in his field. But even outside his profession, Santa Claus enjoys constant popularity, especially among younger, non-logistic experts and non-major suppliers.

If you don’t want Santa Claus to visit you only once a year, then you can crochet this little crocheted Santa Claus, who will certainly enjoy great popularity despite the lack of gifts.

This crochet Santa Claus is almost exclusively crocheted with single crochet stitches in spiral rounds with increases and decreases and is therefore perfect for beginners.

The depicted Amigurumi Santa Claus 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 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.

Ears: Sew the ears 3 to 4 stitches right and left from the eyes onto the head, so that the upper part of the ear is on the same height as the eyes.

Beard: Sew the beard with a white thread from ear to ear under the nose onto the head. The outer ends of the beard lie directly at the top of the ears.

Eyebrows: Pick up a thread from the eyebrows and push it through a stitch diagonally over the eye and let it come out on the back of the head and weave it in. Pick up the second thread from the eyebrow and push it through another stitch directly adjacent to the eye with a distance of 1 stitch from the first pushed through stitch. Let the second thread also come out at the back of the head and weave it in.

The eyebrows can be placed differently above the eyes to create different facial expressions. Proceed as described above, but either push through stitches 1 stitch row above the eyes or push through a stitch 1 stitch row above the eye and a stitch directly above the eye.

Sideburns: Use the tapestry needle to pull a white thread through the outermost stitch on the beard and the underlying stitch on the head. Let the needle come out further up the head (see pictures). Again push the needle and thread through the same stitch on the beard and head and exit at another stitch further up. Repeat 4 to 5 times.

Pompoms: Pull a white pompom thread with the tapestry needle through 1 stitch at the tip of the hat. Firmly knot both pompom threads together, cut them to the length of the pompom and unravel them up.

Hat: Fold the hat in the middle and sew with a signal red thread the top of the hat together with the lower part, so that it stays folded. Sew on the hat with a white thread to the head.

DONE!
