Crochet Christmas Elf

Thank you very much for your support of my Ice Queen Crochet Hat Pattern. I appreciate all your questions, comments, tags on Instagram and shares on Facebook! Thank you very much again.

I also got asked about the elf on my Facebook profile picture, if I could publish more photos of her and share the pattern. So here we go: meet Lily the Christmas Elf! She spent most of the last year in my Christmas storage box, but a couple of weeks ago I took her out of it, and now she is doing silly things over the night, just like any elf on the shelf.

When I saw this free pattern from Yarnspirations about two years ago I found it so pretty, so I knew I NEED to make one! I used Lily Sugar and Cream yarn as the patterns suggests and my favourite 2.75mm hook. The pattern calls for bigger hooks, but when making dolls I prefer to crochet really tight, so that the polyfill can not be seen through.

I modified the pattern a little and made her hands and legs longer. She is about 16" long. I was not very happy with the pattern for her head: it turned out to be egg-shaped while I would prefer it to be round. Otherwise she turned out great! My kids love her and so do I.

I wish you all a happy Merry Christmas!
