Hello, needlewomen! Preparing for the New Year, I got the idea to knit the elf of Santa Claus. As a result, I got a series of dolls. The basis – the body – is the same for all dolls, so I’ll start my master class with this pattern elf body. The amigurumi crochet doll elf from the cotton threads on the wire frame, 12 cm. The pattern with the description of the body of the doll is presented on the example of Eliot Elliot. From the rest of the elves the description is no different, except for the color of the pajamas.

Author’s pattern from Katkarmela. Post ready work and ask questions on the doll pattern in my group in VK, Facebook or Instagram (links on the “About site” page).

Frame

For the frame use any suitable wire. It will take 4 pieces: 2 pieces of 20 cm for the legs and body and 2 pieces of 15 cm for the hands (extra then bite off). Better more than less.

The photo shows how to twist the wire.

The wire for the arms is screwed to the common frame after the torso was knitted to the place where the hands were join.
