Hi.... hope you have a lovely Sunday :)
Finally I finished my last project for Christmas Crafts 2015 : Crochet Santa Claus. I decided to make two in different sizes, the small one is 11 cm height and the bigger is 16 cm.
I think they are very cute and so happy that everyone in my house loved them.
I found the free pattern and tutorial with video from Youtube, the original language is in Italian but come with English subtitles. Here is the link, how to crochet santa claus by Annarella Gioielli
For the materials, I used wool yarns in white, beige and red colours. G-hook 6 mm, tapestry needle, polyester stuffing, wiggle eyes and all purpose glue.
The process was easy and very relaxing, it is a great thing to do between sewing :) I started my work with round 1 : six single crochet in magic ring and then did round 2,3,4 following the video until the last step. I think I am not going to write every step on crochet this little Santa. I advise to click the link above in the pattern for the video and just follow the video.
Here are the pictures of some of my process, just a little note that I left my Santa hat standing as it is. The original is fold to the side. And for bigger Santa, I added four more rounds in the middle of the body, head and hat. Also made a bigger pom pom for the hat.
And more pictures of the finished Santa Claus. Hope you like them as much as I do :)
Also, I am linking this post to Caroline for Show Off Saturday.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
