Simply Crochet - - CONTENTS -

Our lit­tle Santa’s helper is all dressed up for some fes­tive fun. Her dress, hat and boots are fin­ished with snowy white fur, and she’s even rock­ing some golden rein­deer antlers! She’s a stun­ner, and will make a fab gift for Christ­mas fans (not just the young ones!).

NOTES

The Doll is worked us­ing the amigu­rumi method, work­ing in a con­tin­u­ous spi­ral. There is no need to close off the rounds with a ss, un­less oth­er­wise stated. You may find it helpful to mark the first st of each round, mov­ing the marker up as you work.

Change colours on the last yrh of the st be­fore the colour change is in­di­cated.

When con­struct­ing your Doll, re­fer to the im­ages for guid­ance.
