Santa's Elf Crochet Amigurumi Free Pattern


A List of Internet Supply Sources is on Page 16. Abbreviations are on Page 17.
GAGE: Gage is not important as long as the same size thread and hook are used for all
the pattern pieces. However, since tension can vary in different circumstances, it is
suggested that when making two pieces that must be the same, such as arms and legs, that
you complete both in one sitting.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:
ADJUSTABLE RING: Grasp the yarn between your thumb and forefinger, leaving a
tail at the beginning. Wrap the thread over and around the index finger clockwise,
crossing the thread at the top of the finger. Insert the hook underneath the front thread
that you just crossed, then catch the back thread with the hook, and pull a loop of the
back thread from underneath. Slip the loop off the finger, grasping the working end in
the left hand as if to begin crocheting. Chain 1, work number of stitches required into the
ring. Pull up a long loop, then, grasping the stitches just made with the right hand and
tail with left (or vice versa), pull to tighten ring. Insert hook into long loop and tighten
back against hook. Making sure tail is to the back, skip first chain worked and continue
working pattern.
DC2TOG: Decrease in double crochet: *YOH and insert hook into next stitch, YO and
pull up a loop, YOH and pull through 2 loops on hook; ** repeat * to ** once, YOH and
pull through remaining loops on hook.
SC3TOG: (Insert hook into the next stitch) 3 times, yoh and bring up a loop, YO and
pull through all loops on hook.
CHANGING COLORS IN SINGLE CROCHET (SC): Insert hook into stitch where
change will take place, YO and pull up a loop of old color, YO and pull new color
through both loops on hook.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON STUFFING: The way that you stuff your doll can greatly
affect the quality of the finished product, especially if you are thread-jointing. You’ll be
amazed at the quantity of stuffing that each piece requires. The doll should be stuffed
firmly so that it won’t lose its shape, but not so firmly that the stitches are pulled apart to
the extent that the stuffing shows through in a distracting manner.
WEAVING/HIDING LOOSE THREAD ENDS: When making the doll, you can hide
the loose ends by pulling them to the inside of the piece with a tapestry needle. Pass the
needle through the piece 2 or 3 times to anchor the thread end (always go in and come out
between stitches, being careful not to catch any fabric), then pull the thread taut, and clip
close to the surface so that it disappears inside.
For other pattern pieces, it’s best to weave all loose ends as you finish each piece. If you
can’t hide the beginning tail by working over it for a few stitches, leave a tail that is long
enough to enable you to thread it onto a needle to weave it. When you fasten off, always
leave a tail that is long enough to thread onto a needle and weave.
TO WEAVE LOOSE ENDS: Thread the tail onto a needle. Working on the WS of the
piece and beginning directly beneath the place where you fastened off, insert the needle
underneath and through the upper loops of fabric for a length of 4 or 5 stitches, and then
turn and repeat through 2 or 3 of the same stitches in the opposite direction.

LEGS:
You will be working the shoe from the inside until you get to the heel. Work in BL until
instructed otherwise.
1. Begin with brown and make an adjustable ring (see special instructions), make 4 sc in
ring; pull to gather and close the center. (4 sc)
• Make sure that the loose end is pulled toward you, so that it will be inside the shoe as
you work from the inside.
• Work rows 2 – 10 in BL.

showing)
12 – 14. Sc in both lps of next 8 sc; ch 1, turn. (8 sc made)
15. Turn the back end of the shoe inside out and fold in half vertically, with 4 sc on each
side of the fold. Working in outer lps of the sc of rnd 14, sl st in next 4 pairs of sc’s (e.g.,
insert the hook into the front lp of the 1st sc on the top sc, then into the back lp of the sc
directly behind on the other side; yoh and pull through all lps on hook); FO. (4 joining sl
st)
• Turn back end of shoe right side out.
• Cut a piece of chenille stem that is long enough to fit inside the entire bottom length
of the shoe from tip of toe to heel, turn up at the heel, and extend to just above the top
edge of the heel. (If using sport weight or DK yarn, include enough length to turn the
toe end of the stem back on itself about 1/8″ (4mm), so that the sharp end will not
protrude out of the end of the toe of the shoe.) Insert the stem into the shoe until
touches the tip of the toe (you may need to insert your crochet hook into the tip of the
smaller shoes first to free up any fibers that prevent the stem from going all the way
to the end of the toe). Press the stem against the sole of the shoe all the way from toe
to the heel, then bend the stem upward at a 90 degree angle so that it lies against the
inside edge of the heel.
• Use pliers to snip off the chenille stem at this level.
16. Join shoe color with sc in heel seam, sc in next 3 row ends on side of shoe, sc in next
4 sc across top of shoe, sk next row end, sc in next 4 row ends on other side of shoe; join
with sl st in BL of 1st sc, ch 1, do not turn. (12 sc)
• Notice that after you have joined, the turning ch-1 that pulls across between the last sc
and the joining sc appears to be a stitch. Make sure that you don’t mistake that ch-1
as a stitch. If you ever end up with one more stitch than you need, this may be what
has happened.
17. Sc in same pl as joining and in ea sc around; join with sl st in 1st sc, ch 1, do not turn.
(12 sc)
• Stuff the shoe from heel to toe, excluding the narrow part of the toe. Curl the narrow

• Sew cuff to arm around wrist.
ATTACH ARMS:
1. Thread the long end remaining at the top of the arm onto a needle. Press the top arm
opening together, with the arm seam on your left, so that there will be 4 sc on each side
of the top seam.
2. Sewing through the outer lps only of each side, stitch the top seam together as follows:
With the thumb pointing toward your left, insert the needle under the outer lp of the 1st
sc
of the side that is facing you, and then insert the needle under the outer lp of the sc
directly across from it.
3. Turn the needle, and reverse the process.
4. Continue across to end; do not cut thread.
5. When attaching the arms, the arm seam will be at the back of the arm, and the
thumb will be facing toward the front. Continuing with the same thread, sew the arm
securely to the body at the edge of the shoulder. Hide the thread end by pulling inside
body.
EARS:
• Note: When you are making the ears, leave a tail at the beginning, so that after you
have sewn the piece in place, you’ll be able to thread the tail onto a needle and pull it
inside the doll to hide it.

sc, sc in next sc, sl st in same pl; FO, leaving long end for sewing. (9 sc, 2 hdc, picot, sl
st)
• Pin the ears in place; move them around until you are satisfied with the placement,
then sew in place along the base of row 1.
FACIAL FEATURES
DEFINE FEATURES WITH NEEDLE SCULPTING (OPTIONAL):
*Thread a long needle with skin color (same thread or yarn used to make doll); do not
double, knot the end. Insert the needle into the back of the head and bring it out at the
lower right edge of the nose (your right). (Always go in and out between stitches, trying
not to catch any fabric. Use your pliers to help you pull the needle through if necessary.)
Tug gently to pull the knot inside the head. Insert the needle back into the face one rnd
below and to the right, and bring it out the back of the head; pull to indent slightly. Insert
the needle back into the head in the same place where it came out, and bring it out at the
opposite lower edge of the nose. Insert the needle back into the face one rnd below and
to the left, and bring it out the back of the head; pull to indent slightly. *Insert the needle
back into the same place where it came out, and bring out one stitch to the right of (your
right) the top edge of the nose, then back into the face one row up, and out the back of the
head. Pull to indent slightly.* Repeat * to * on the opposite top edge of the nose. Run
the needle and thread through the head 3 or 4 times to anchor and secure. Cut thread.
EYES:
Method I.
Make a French Knot: Using black yarn or thread (same size doll is made from) on a
sharp tapestry needle, insert needle into back of head and bring
out at 1st eye location. Insert needle back into same place and
bring out on back of head; *insert back into same place, and
bring out at eye location. Your thread is now anchored. Place
the needle flat on the surface of the face, touching the yarn
where it came out of the fabric. Holding the needle in place with
your left thumb, wrap the thread around the needle 3 times. Holding the knotted thread
firmly in place against the fabric with your left thumb, insert the needle a tiny bit to the
left of where it came out, and pull through to the back of the head, pulling the knot firmly
against the fabric.** Repeat * to ** for second eye.
Method II. Use glass eyes: Use pins (the kind with round glass heads are good for this)
to locate the eye positions (see illustration below; note that this photo does not depict
exactly how your elf head will look). Sew the eyes on with black nylon or other strong
thread: Begin by threading a sturdy needle, such as a milliner’s needle, with nylon or
other strong thread. Do not knot the end. If using wire-looped eyes,
crimp the wire loop with pliers (if it’s not pre-crimped) until you can just
get your needle through the loop; insert the needle through the loop (or
bead), and then remove the thread from the needle. (If you can’t get your
needle through the wire or bead, insert the thread through first, then
thread it onto the needle.) Thread both ends back onto the needle, and
then insert the needle into the first eye location. *Bring the needle
out the back or bottom of the head (depending on the angle you
want), pulling the thread until the wire loop touches the face. Insert
the crimped loop into the same place where the needle went in (use
a larger needle to make a tunnel for the loop if necessary), pushing
it flush against the face. Pull gently but firmly on the thread to
slightly imbed the eye into the face. Keeping the thread taut so as
not to allow the eye to loosen, insert the needle back into the exact place,** then push
through the head and out at the second eye location. Insert the threaded needle through
the eye wire or bead (once again, if your needle won’t go through the opening, remove
the thread from the needle, insert it through the eye wire or bead, then rethread the
needle). Insert the needle into the 2nd eye location, then repeat * to ** to attach the 2nd
eye, bringing the needle out finally at the bottom of the head. Tie off the ends with a
surgeon’s knot (see illustration at right), then thread the ends onto the needle and insert
back into the head in the same place where the knot is; pull though the head. Clip ends
close to the surface so that they disappear inside the head.
EYEBROWS:
Using hair color, embroider a straight stitch above each eye.
MOUTH:
Using the number of strands of red embroidery floss (or other thread or yarn) that looks
right for the size of your doll, use straight stitches to embroider the mouth as shown in the
photos. Make a shorter diagonal straight stitch at each edge of the mouth.
HAIR:
The hair is created by using small lengths of yarn and making fringe around the
stitches of the head as follows: Fold one piece of yarn in half. Insert the crochet hook
into a space below a sc, push up behind the sc, and bring out above the sc. With the
hook, grab the piece of yarn at the center fold and pull the loop back down behind the
sc, and out below the sc. YO both tails above, and pull them through the loop. Pull on
both tails to tighten the knot.
Since the elf will be wearing a hat, you may decide to create hair only on the part of the
head that won’t be underneath the hat.
1. Cut 13 2″ (5cm) pieces of yarn (burnt orange). Use these pieces to make a fringe
along row 6 from the center of the head, across the forehead.
2. Cut 8 2″ (4cm) pieces of yarn. Use to make a fringe on the back of the head along the
12th row from the center top.
3. Cut 9 2″ (5cm) pieces of yarn. Use to make a fringe on the back of the head along the
10th row from the center top.
4. Repeat row 3 along 8th row from center top.
5. Cut 13 2″ (5cm) pieces of yarn. Make a fringe on the back of the head along 6th row
the from the top of the, between the front fringe previously made.
6. Cut 20 2″ (5cm) pieces of yarn. The fringe will now continue in a spiral to the center
top of the head. Beginning where the last row of fringe left off, move up to the 4th row
from center top and continue making 20 fringe.
7. Cut 12 2″ (5cm) pieces of yarn. Move up to the 2nd row from center top and continue
making fringe to center top.
8. Cut 6 2″ pieces of yarn. Make 6 fringes around the center opening at top of head.
9. Cut 4 – 6 2″ pieces of yarn, and make 2 or 3 fringes on each side of the head, in front
of the ears, directly below the fringe that goes across the forehead.
10. Cut as many pieces of yarn as you need to fill in any blank spots.
• Trim hair to desired length. Trim around ears.
