The Friendly Santa is about 10 inches tall and 4.5 inches wide (not including the arms and hat.) Santa works up fairly quickly so he is a great last minute gift or item for craft fairs. For this project I used I Love this Yarn from Hobby Lobby, a size 4 worsted weight yarn, in red, white, black and Ivory. For the beard and trim I used Bernat’s Pipsqueak Yarn in White. I used Caron’s Simply Soft in Gold for the belt.
You can find the pattern on ETSY or on RAVELRY.
This is a good advanced beginner pattern. I include A LOT of tips and tricks for those new to amigurumi and can be helpful for those who already love it! I include many photos for each step of the process. Written using U.S Crochet terms.
