The crochet nutcracker looks a little like Einstein without his hat! As always, I used simple stitches to create the basic shapes of this crochet plushie. Then I added in some extra details by embroidering on the gold laces on the boots and the buckle of his belt. I had a lot of fun looking up different nutcracker designs for this pattern, although I wanted to make it a bit cuter than most of the ones I saw. Something about the face always seemed a little creepy and stern! Also, most of the designs I saw were red and black, but I decided to go with a blue outfit instead since so many other Christmas things are either red or green.

The pattern is available immediately after payment so you can start making your own little plushie right away.
