The crochet Gingerbread man is a versatile Christmas decoration: you can put it on plates or hang it on the tree – it’s really up to you and your imagination. You can dress him up with a hat or a scarf, embroider a nice coat or even some funny hair.

The pattern is worked in rounds, because this way you make two layers at once and the Gingerbread man is nice and thick almost like the real thing! Plus it holds the shape much better than one layer would. There’s no need for blocking (yay!).

What You’ll Need:

Beige/ brown cotton yarn for the body – yarn group C, 50g / 75 m (1.8 oz / 82 yds) – I used Drops Paris Colour 43
More cotton yarn for embroidery – red, yellow, green, black… – same yarn weight or preferably lighter – I used Drops Loves You n. 7 and 8
Crochet hook size 4
Bigger tapestry or embroidery needle

Beginner friendly pattern.
