Our cheeky elf by designer Erinna Lee (@littleaquagirl) first appeared in Simply Crochet issue 77, hiding out in the cover kit, just waiting to be set free.
But if you missed him then, you can now find the pattern on Ravelry here!
Once you’ve hooked up this little (15cm to be precise) cutie, he’ll be with you throughout your festivities, hiding behind the holly on the mantelpiece or even in the mince pie tin. We love his bendy, pipe cleaner legs!
You will need:
- Any DK yarn: Flesh, Green, Red, Brown, White, Gold
- A pair of safety eyes
- Pipe cleaner
- Black sewing thread
- Stitch markers
- A 2.5mm (US B/1 or C/2) hook
- Toy stuffing
