FREE PATTERN: Small Christmas Elves- 2021
Click for a free pattern
A few years ago, I wrote patterns for the larger Christmas elves, but they are pretty elaborate and take some time to do. And because I knew December was the busiest time for all craftsmen, I thought I would make a smaller and simpler little elf doll – perfect as a last minute gift or if you need to work in a group.
19 cm (7 1/2″) from head to toe, 25.5 cm (10″) including the hat, when crocheted with DK weight cotton yarn and a 2.75 mm (US size C) crochet hook.
YOU WILL NEED
Yarn. I used DROPS Muskat*, a DK / light worsted weight cotton yarn (50 g = 100 m / 109 yd). You will need about 17 g of beige and 28 – 32 g of red or green yarn.
2,75 mm crochet hook or a size matching your yarn.
Stuffing. Polyester fiberfill works best, but you can use any materials you might have at hand.
8 mm (1/3″) safety eyes.
Sport weight or finer yarn for the pom-pom.
Fingering weight cotton yarn for shoe laces.
White cotton embroidery floss.
Yarn needle, scissors, sewing pins and a stitch marker.
