Pattern: How to crochet a Santa Claus Amigurumi?


We start with the head and finish with the bottom of the body. 

The head and the body – Santa Claus Amigurumi Pattern

With a 3.5 mm crochet and the peach yarn.

  • Round 11: [1 sc, 1 dec] x6. (12)

Place the eyes between rounds 6 and 7, spaced by 3 stitches.

With the tapestry needle and the white pearl cotton, make the eyebrows over the eyes, and the scar on the forehead.

Facultative: with a little piece of peach yarn, make a nose.

 

Join a new color, red. We are now doing the body.

  • Round 12: working in the back loop only (blo): [1 sc in all st]. (12)
  • Round 13: [1 sc, 1 inc] x6. (18)
  • Rounds 14-16: [1 sc in all st]. (18)

Fill the head.

Fill the body as you go.

Join a new color, black. We are now doing the belt.

  • Rounds 17-18: [1 sc in all st]. (18)

Join a new color, red. We are now doing the lower body.

  • Round 19: working in the back loop only (blo): [1 sc in all st]. (18)

  • Round 26: [6 dec]. (6)

Close the body and fasten off.

We are now adding a row in the front loop of round 24. This will allow your doll to stand up. You can skip this step if you don’t want it to stand up.

Join the black yarn in any front loop of Round 24 (I would suggest joining in a loop in the back so it won’t be too visible). 

  • Round 27: working in the front loop only (flo): [2 sc, 1 inc] x6. (24)

Finish with a slip stitch in the first st of round 27 and fasten off.

With the tapestry needle and the yellow yarn, make a ring around the belt.

Fold the hat and make a little stitch with your tapestry needle and the red yarn to make sure it stays like that.
