Posh Pete The Elf Doll
I like the Elf on shelf idea, but I found the Elf to be a little creepy. I wanted to make an elf, that was cute, sweet, fun and big enough to play with. This Doll is soft and lovable. If you start him now, he just might be ready for Christmas.
Mr. Fox Toy
If you’re looking for a youthful, fun project to crochet for Christmas, check out this toy foxy. Mr. Fox Toy is so sweet and fun, and is the perfect counterpart to the adventurous Mrs. Fox Toy. Mr. Fox has a removable jacket and scarf for easy cleaning, or if you wanted to make him a couple other outfits, too. He’s entirely stitched up with single crochets, so this is an easy project with a big payoff.

Meet Angelica, the angel amigurumi! With her pretty little boots, sparkly wings, and cheerful face, Angelica is the perfect project for your winter or holiday crocheting! This amigurumi is worked up in pieces and then sewn together at the end. Because her legs are sewn on separately, she can be placed in a sitting or standing position (if leaned against something). Angelica measures 12 inches tall and is great for cuddling, decorating, or gift giving! This is a free pattern by Loops and Love Crochet, including lots of detailed photos to help you along the way!
This reindeer pattern will look great on a shelf or even perched in the branches of your Christmas tree, ready for take off.

Soft and cuddly, this reindeer will delight both you and your kids with his cheerful personality.
Crochet Santa Claus
This adorable little guy would look great in a Christmas scene on your mantel, or in a Christmas village in his own sleigh. A Crochet Santa Claus would also be a cute ornament, or a fun stocking stuffer from Santa, himself! What better way to leave a mark than to leave a miniature version of him behind to play with?
Crochet Mrs. Claus
If you’re in need of a little tender loving care, an Amigurumi Crochet Mrs. Claus is the perfect solution. With her adorable wire glasses and a red bow in her hair, Mrs. Claus will bring a smile to your face every time you look at her. Her hair is cleverly felted to make it look more realistic, and with her partner Santa Claus she makes a perfectly tiny decoration.
These cute little guys are pretty quick to make and can either be given as festive toys or used to add some magic to your tree! The main body of the snowicorn is made top down in one piece, then you can go to town with fun colours for it’s scarf, horn and mane to create your own magical buddy!
Claus the Yeti

Chimney Santa Kawaii Cuddler
Santa’s on his way down the chimney to deliver presents to all the good children! We had so much fun creating this adorable design!
Christmas Pudding Bear
I haven’t ever eaten Christmas pudding, and while I’m not altogether familiar with Christmas pudding, the treat looks unmistakably festive and delicious! I wanted to combine this seasonal treat with a cute bear. The bear took around an hour and a half from start to finish. It’s a great project to start on a chilly evening!
Via Picot Pals
This little reindeer works up quickly and makes a cute gift for the holidays! I provided a photo tutorial for attaching the legs so that the pattern is more accessible to beginner amigurumi makers. In addition to yarn and stuffing, I used 6mm safety eyes, red felt scraps, pink & black thread, and a tiny jingle bell to create my reindeer. Alternatively, you could decorate your reindeer with whatever you happen to have on hand.

Meet Trixie and Twinkle, Santa’s little helpers! These elves are bound to put a smile on your face and get you thinking about the holidays. Each elf amigurumi measures about 12 inches tall when legs are extended including the hat.
Scandinavian Santa Gnome
Without a full facial expression, there’s always so much to interpret from these Scandinavian inspired gnomes. Are they sad, or mischievous, or somewhat languid and just enjoying a quiet life? I love their mystery and playfulness!
Via One Dog Woof
These snowmen started out as a custom order for a dear friend. However, I knew I had to share them after I created the pom-pom hats! The pom-pom hats are equal parts cuddly and sparkly, which makes for an oh-so-cute snowman!
