Nisse/ Elf

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. 
Enjoy 🙂
