Here Comes Santa Claus
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)
Needles: 5-inch (18 cm) doll needle, blunt tapestry needle (these are suggestions; use the needles that work best for you.)
Gauge: Gauge 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.
Use any size thread or yarn and use suitable hook size, and adjust the size of the eyes to fit the proportions of your bear.
