Santa Claus amigurumi free crochet pattern

Welcome to my Friends Blog. Do you want to knit Santa Claus? You have come to the right address :). I thank precious @natalkiny_tsatski for this great design. You can follow her Instagram address.
When I share this pattern, we are still in the middle of July. There is still a lot of time for Christmas. However, you can start knitting in the last days of August or in September. You will complete it early and it will be a nice gift in time.
Maybe you can use it to decorate the Christmas tree. It is difficult to find such amigurumis. Because amigurumi is not made for special occasions. Some kids love Santa Claus very much. So I think it will be a nice gift.
I really liked the details in the amigurumi. Especially the redness of their echoes. His beard looks so cute. Made in different colors. You can view other pictures by switching between pages.
You can find all necessary materials in the pattern section. Good luck to all of you guys.
