This crochet Santa sits about 7 inches tall, but is closer to 15 including the legs! The body and head are one piece with the various limbs sewn on.

This free crochet Santa Claus pattern makes a sweet little decoration designed to sit on a little shelf with his striped legs hanging over! This is the fourth design in my Christmas Shelf Sitters series. They are all based off a little moose my grandma had growing up. She always went all out when it came to decorating for Holidays so this is my tribute to her memory.

You will need:
About 50g each of Size 4 Worsted weight yarn in skin color, sweater color, stripe colors
(I used Hobby Lobby’s I love this yarn for the project in colors ivory, red, white, and black)
12mm safety eyes
3.75mm hook
Needle for sewing
Stitch marker
¾ cup Poly pellets (these are used to weigh down the body so it can sit on the shelf)
