What’s better than a visit from Santa? A visit from twelve Santas! Top this 18” doily with a platter of cookies, a punch bowl, or a centerpiece to cute-ify your holiday.

Use #10 thread in red, white, and a skin color with a #7 hook for a 17-18” doily. Increase or decrease thread and hook size for a larger or smaller doily. Use a color for Santa’s face that will show up between his white hat trim & his white beard.

This pattern uses chain, single crochet, double crochet, dc2tog (double chain 2 together), and slip stitches. Photos are provided for making Santa’s nose. Stitch markers are recommended to simplify counting the spaces in his beard.
