Todays daily new amigurumi free crochet pattern is Amigurumi Elf.
I want to give you some informations about this pattern ;

Size

17 cm (6 2/3″) tall from head to toe, 24 cm (9 1/2″) including the hat, with DK weight cotton and bamboo blend and a 2,50 mm crochet hook (US size 2/C).

Tip! You can use the same pattern to make larger or smaller toys by using finer or bulkier yarn. Pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on the yarn label and crochet tightly enough to achieve a tight gauge that will not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric. You may also need to adjust the size of the safety eyes.

Skills required

• Crocheting in spiral
• Magic ring
• Single crochet stitch (double crochet stitch in UK and Australia)
• Increasing
• Decreasing
• Finishing an open piece
• Finishing a flat piece
• Joining pieces

You will need

• Yarn. I used DK weight cotton and bamboo blend, 50g =100m (50g =109yd) / 8 ply / 11 wpi / 3: light. You will need about 10 g of beige, 22 g of red and 2-3 g of white yarn.
• 2,50 – 3,50 mm crochet hook (US hook size 2/C – 4/E) or according to the yarn.
• Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc. for stuffing.
• 6 mm safety eyes or buttons, beads, felt etc.
• Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.
