This Santa Claus is made without sewing. Well, the only thing that is sewn on is the tiny ball at the end of his hat.
The rest is all made by working in back loops sometimes, or changing colour.
The beard is crocheted directly onto his face.
I designed this, because I wanted a quick gift for friends. Without having to spend so much time on sewing everything together.

It is a phototutorial.
It is cute and fun to make. I would love to see pictures, and if you have any questions, please contact me.

If you use fingering weight, mercerised cotton, with 3mm hook;
then santa is 14cm high (including hat), and 5cm in diameter.
