Materials and Supplies: (Santa is approximately 12 inches tall, or 30 cm)
• Sport or DK weight yarn, such as Red Heart Sport or Paton’s Astra: Peach or
light pink for skin (50 yds), red (175 yds), soft white (150 yds), green (100 yds),
black (75 yds), and small amounts of gray or gold. Red Heart Sport was used for
the model.
• Size C crochet hook (2 –2.75mm)
• Two 1/2 ” (13 mm) buttons for backpack in color of choice
• Five 25 mm plastic disk sets
• One ½” (13 mm) jingle bell (optional)
• Hemostat, tweezers, or other stuffing tool of choice
• Mohair finger brush or stiff toothbrush for brushing up “fur”
• Two 9 mm plastic eyes (I prefer the plastic backs to the metal because the metal
ones tend to show between the stitches)
• Stuffing
• Needles: 5-inch (18 cm) doll needle, blunt tapestry needle (these are suggestions;
use the needles that work best for you.)
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.
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.


HEAD:
1. Begin with an adjustable ring, make 6 sc in ring OR ch 2 with skin color, 6 sc in 2nd ch
from hook; do not join. Use a piece of contrasting thread as a rnd marker.
2. 2 sc in ea sc around. (12 sc)
3. (2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc) 6 times. (18 sc)
4. Sc in ea sc around. (18 sc)
5. (2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc) 9 times. (27 sc)
6. Sc in ea sc around. (27 sc)
7. (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc) 9 times. (36 sc)
8 – 12. Sc in ea sc around. (36 sc)
13. Sc in next 15 sc, sl st loosely in ea of next 2 sc, sc in next 2 sc, sl st loosely in next 2
sc, sc in next 15 sc. (32 sc, 4 sl st)
14. Sc in next 5 sc, sc2tog twice, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in ea of next 5 st, sc in next 2 sc, 2
sc in ea of next 5 st, sc in next 3 sc, sc2tog twice, sc in next 5 sc. (42 sc)

18. Sc in ea sc around. (33 sc)
• Stuff head through rnd 11.
• Insert the eyes now. There is a stitch pattern on the front of the face where you made
“2 sl st, 2sc, 2 sl st”. Place the eyes so that the pins are inserted between rnds 12 and 13,
putting the first eye into the 1st slip stitch of the first group of 2 slip stitches, and the
second eye into the 2nd slip stitch of the second group. The bottom edge of the eyes
should touch the top edge of rnd 14. Insert the eye’s pin between stitches, then reach
inside the head and firmly push the metal or plastic backing onto the eye pin. If you
have an eye placement disaster, you can pull out the stitches all the way back to the stitch
just after the last eye you come to. The eyes will come out with the stitches as you get to
them, and you can begin crocheting again from this point. You won’t be able to use these
eyes again, however.
19. (Sc2tog, sc in next sc) 4 times, sc2tog, sc in next 7 sc, (sc2tog, sc in next sc) 4 times.
(24 sc)
• Continue stuffing.
20. (Sc2tog, sc in next sc) 3 times, sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc, (sc2tog, sc in next sc) 3 times,
sc2tog. (16 sc)
• Make sure the cheeks are filled out nicely.
21. Sc in next 3 sc, sc2tog 5 times, sc in next 3 sc. (11 sc)
• Finish stuffing head.
• Insert one of the plastic disks inside the bottom head opening, with its pin protruding
downward.
22. Sc2tog 5 times; FO with sl st in next sc. (5 sc)
• Hide loose end using method described in “Special Instructions” above.
You may alternatively sew the head and limbs to the body, in which case you will
omit the jointing steps.

FACIAL FEATURES
Nose:
1. With same thread as head, ch 4, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 2 ch; ch 1, turn. (3
sc)
2. Sc in ea of the next 3 sc, ch 1, turn.
3. Sc in ea of the next 3 sc; FO, leaving long end.
• Using the long end, sew a row of gathering stitches around all 4 sides of the piece, as
close to the edge as possible, and only catching one thread with each stitch. Pull the end
to gather and close after putting a tiny bit of stuffing inside. Using the same thread, sew
the nose to the face, with the top edge of the nose centered between the eyes.
Eyebrows (Make 2):
1. Using one strand of white ch 6, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 4 ch; turn. (5 sc)
2. Sk 1st sc, sc in next 3 sc, sl st in last sc; FO, leaving long end for sewing eyebrow to
face. (3 sc, sl st)
• The “furring” is optional; gently brush the eyebrows until they are slightly fuzzy,
always brushing in one direction, away from what will be the inside edge. Trim any
unruly ends, and then pin the brows above the eyes in the desired location. Carefully sew
them to the face using the long tail remaining from row 2.
LEFT EAR:
1. Ch 2 with skin color, 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook; ch 1, turn. (8 sc)
2. 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in ea of next 2 sc, sl st in last sc; FO, leaving long
end for sewing. (10 sc, sl st)
RIGHT EAR:
1. Ch 2 with skin color, 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook; turn. (8 sc)
2. Sl st in 1st sc, 2 sc in ea of next 2 sc, sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in last sc; FO, leaving long
end for sewing. (10 sc, sl st)
• To place the doll’s left ear, count about 6 sc back from the outer edge of the eye and
place the vertical inside edge of the ear here, with the center of the ear lying on the line
between rnds 12 and 13. Because of the slight difference in the horizontal line caused by
working in rounds, you will need to place the right ear down just a bit, with the center of
the ear lying ON rnd 13. Sew ear to head. Keep your stitching between rows 1 and 2, so
that the edges of the ears will come away from the head like real ears do.
MUSTACHE (MAKE 2 PIECES):
1. With one strand of white, ch 8, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 5 sc, sl st in last ch;
turn. (6 sc, sl st)
2. Sk sl st, sl st in next sc, sc in next 4 sc, sl st in last sc; FO, leaving long end for sewing
to head. Row 2 is front of mustache. (4 sc, 2 sl st)
• Brush up the mustache as you did the eyebrows. Trim unruly ends if needed. Pin in
place, with the ends of the two pieces meeting below the center of the nose. Sew to face.
HAIR:
1. Ch 21 with white, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 19 sc; ch 1, turn. (20 sc)
2 – 3. Sc in ea sc across; ch 1, turn. (20 sc)
4. Sk 1st sc, sc in next 18 sc, sl st in last sc, FO, leaving long end for sewing to head. (18
sc, sl st)

• Row 4 is the right side. Brush up and trim hair. Pin hair to head with the right side
out, across lower back of head, with top of each end being just slightly above an ear,
curving downward in the middle like a smile. Do not sew in place yet.


LEFT ARM:
1. With green ch 7, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 5 ch, moving to opposite side of
chain, sc in next 6 free lps; do not join, place rnd marker. (12 sc)
2. (2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc) 6 times. (18 sc)
3. Sc in ea sc around. (18 sc)
4. (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 8 sc) twice. (20 sc)
5 – 7. Sc in ea sc around. (20 sc)

next 2 free lps, sc in side of sc bet top and bottom of thumb opening, continue around and
sc in next 2 sc, sc in side of sc bet top and bottom of thumb opening, do not join. (7 sc)
2. Sc in ea sc around. (7 sc)
3. Sc2tog, sc in next 4 sc, FO with sl st in next sc leaving long end for closing end of
thumb – do not work last sc. (5 sc, sl st)
• Sew gathering stitches around rnd 3; pull to close the thumb end; FO, hide end by
pulling to inside of thumb. Stuff hand.
***
11. Resume arm; join red with sc in next sc on hand, sc in ea st around. (17 sc)
12. Sc in next 9 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 7 sc. (18 sc)

24. Sc in next 11 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc. (19 sc)
25 – 29. Sc in ea sc around. (19 sc)
• Stuff arm through rnd 24. Bend arm slightly inward where the 5 slip stitches are made
on rnd 21. Find the center of the inside of the bottom end of the hand, and follow a line
upward to the center of the inside of the upper arm; mark with a pin or thread. Insert a
plastic disk inside the top of the arm, pushing its plastic pin through to the outside
between rnds 28 and 29, at the point where the marker identifies the center. Finish
stuffing to the top of the arm to ensure that you have centered the joint on the inside of
the arm (remember that the thumbs face forward). If the placement is wrong, remove the
stuffing and reposition the pin.
30. Sc in next 3 sc, sc2tog, sc in next 8 sc, sc2tog, sc in next 4 sc. (17 sc)
31. Sc in next 3 sc, sc2tog, sc in next 6 sc, sc2tog, sc in next 4 sc. (15 sc)
32. Sc in next 2 sc, sc2tog, sc in next 6 sc, sc2tog, sc in next 3 sc; sl st in next 4 sc, or to
the side edge of the arm, FO, leaving long end for closing the end of the arm. (13 sc)
• Finish stuffing. Stuff the last 8 rows fairly lightly, keeping the top of the arm flat so it
won’t stick out too much from the shoulder. The arm is wider front-to-back.

Sew the arm seam using a ladder (see illustration below) or oversew stitch. It makes a
neater stitch if you sew using the BL’s only of the sc’s on each side, going in the outer
loop of the left side, across and through the outer loop of the opposite side, then reverse
and go in the outer loop of the right side, across and through the outer loop of the
opposite side.

• Stuff and insert joint using instructions for left arm, except that you will insert the joint
pin between rnds 27 and 28, rather than 28 and 29.
30 – 32. Repeat 30 – 32 of left arm.
• Finish same as left arm.
CUFFS (MAKE 2):
1. With white ch 22 (or to fit around your doll’s wrist), join with sl st in 1st ch to form a
ring, ch 1, sc in same ch as joining and in next 21 ch; join with sl st in 1st sc, ch 1, do not

sc in next sc, sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc. (41 sc)
4. Sc in BL of ea sc around. (41 sc)
5 – 7. Sc in ea sc around. (41 sc)
8. Sc in next sc, place rnd marker for beginning of rnd here (moving the starting point
does NOT change the total stitch count), sc in next 13 sc, sc2tog 8 times, sc in next 12 sc.
(33 sc)
9. Sc in next 10 sc, (sc2tog, sc in next sc) 4 times, sc2tog, sc in next 9 sc. (28 sc)

30. (Sc2tog, sc in next 9 sc) twice. (20 sc)
Place a leg joint disk, pin outward, against the inner side of the leg just under the top
loops of rnd 31, centered vertically on the inner leg. Note where the pin should lie, and
insert the joint inside the top of the leg. Push through between stitches at the point noted.
Careful: When you insert the joint for the 2nd leg, make sure that you have both joints
on the inner side of the leg. Place the 2 legs next to each other with the pins inserted,
and see that both boots are facing forward when the joint pins are together.
31. (Sc2tog, sc in next 8 sc) twice; FO with sl st in next sc, leaving long end for sewing.
• The top edge of the disk should rest just below the loops of rnd 31. Finish stuffing the
leg, with the top 4 rnds stuffed lightly so that the leg won’t stick out from the side of the
body too severely. The leg should not be round, but oval shaped, with the wider part of
the oval being from front to back. The top of the leg will be sewn together with the seam
running front to back. Close the leg opening using ladder stitch or oversew stitch.
CUFFS (MAKE ONE FOR EACH LEG):
1. With white ch 32, or number needed to fit loosely around leg at boot top; being careful
not to twist the chain, join with sl st in 1st ch, ch 1, sc in same ch as joining and in ea ch
around; ch 1, do not turn. (32 sc)
2 – 3. Sc in ea sc around; join with sl st in 1st sc, ch 1, do not turn. FO at end of rnd 3.
(32 sc)
• The WS will face out. Brush WS until slightly fuzzy. Slip cuff onto the leg and pin to
leg around top of boot, covering the line where the boot and leg join. Sew cuff to leg,
easing evenly to fit. (Easing means to pin or sew while using your fingers to adjust
adjoining pieces that are not the same length so they match up.)
BODY:
1. Ch 11 with red, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 9 ch; moving around to opposite
side of ch, sc in next 10 free lps; do not join. (20 sc)

16. Sc in next 5 sc, sc2tog, sc in next 24 sc, sc2tog, sc in next 27 sc. (58 sc)
ATTACH ARMS:
Both sides: Look for the left end of the foundation chain, then count 8 rnds straight down
the side of the doll from that point. Insert the joint pin (remember that the thumbs point
forward) between stitches, between rnds 8 and 9. Insert some stuffing into the body so
that the shoulders are filled out in order to check for arm positioning. If the position
looks right, push the plain disk onto the pin, then the lock washer; push until locked into
place flush against the fabric. If positioning is not right, remove the stuffing and
reposition the joints. Repeat until the arm placement looks pleasing.

ATTACH LEGS:
Both sides: Raise the arms until they are pointing straight forward. The back of the leg
will be placed directly below the back edge of the arm as it is now positioned (the top end
when the arms are down). Insert the joint pin (remember that the toes of the boots point
forward), between stitches, between rnds 24 and 25. If the position looks right, push the
disks onto the pins until locked in place.
29. (Sc2tog, sc in next sc) 7 times. (14 sc)
• Finish stuffing the body.
30. Sc2tog 7 times; FO with sl st in next sc, leaving long end for sewing. (7 sc)

• Brush “fur” trim until fuzzy. Trim as needed.
• Sew a row of gathering stitches across the top edge of the skirt using the free loops of
the foundation chain: Insert the needle through the first free lp from the RS, then turn the
needle and go into the next free lp from the WS; continue in this manner across the top
edge of the skirt; do not fasten off or secure the thread yet.
• Wrap the skirt around the body between the 13th and 14th rnds up from the center of the
bottom of the doll, and with the two ends meeting at center front. Pin the front edges in
place, then pull the gathering thread until the piece fits around the body. Distribute the
fullness evenly around. Pin the center of the back in place, and the sides, then fasten off
and secure the end of the gathering thread. Sew the skirt in place.
JACKET FRONT “FUR” TRIM (MAKE 2):

very narrow arc around each eye.
