Santa Claus Amigurumi Pattern
This cute crocheted Santa is a great project for the holidays!
This is exclusively available as a PDF pattern, delivered instantly. No shipping costs and no waiting! (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
He measures about 18 inches tall when completed with a worsted weight yarn.
Want a bigger or smaller Santa? Use thicker or thinner yarn and a larger or smaller hook!
Santa is pretty easy to make, using mostly basic skills, but he does have some fancy shaping to make that chubby belly. It's not difficult, but for a few rounds there's a lot of stitch counting so you have to pay attention. :-)
These are the skills you'll need. . .
- single crochet
- working the bottom side of a foundation chain
- changing colors
Don't worry - the PDF pattern has links to videos teaching you all the skills you'll need! And it contains progress photos of all the important steps, so you won’t get lost. :-)

- tapestry needle

Talk to Me
If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.
For example, if you want to hire someone to help you crochet, or to do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-) firstname.lastname@example.org
