I love Christmas, who doesn’t 🙂
So I got the idea to this nisse, or elf.
It’s quite simple.
I just croched a cone and changed color for the hat, face and body.
Start with a magic circle.
Round 1: 3 sc into the circle.
Round 2: 2 sc in every st.
Now increase by 2 st in every round until the hat is the desired size.
Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round.
Change color and do a couple of rounds in white. Keep increasing by 2 st every round.
Change color again to make the face and again to make the body. Still increasing by 2 every round. Keep going until the body is the desired size. Fasten of and cut the yarn.
Now make a circle for the bottom.
Make a magic circle
Round 1: 6 sc into the circle
Round 2: 2 sc in every st
Now increase by 6 every round.
(Round 3: 1 sc in first st 2 sc in next st 6 times. Round 4: 1 sc in first 2 st 2 sc in next st 6 times and so on)
Until the circle is big enough to cover the bottom of the cone. Leave a long tail.
Weave in all ends but the one on the circle. Stuff the cone and stitch the circle to the cone using a tapestry needle.
Make a mouth with black yarn. Eyes and buttons are made out of felt and glued on.
