Christmas Tree Doll

Updated: Aug 3



She is a cute tiny Elf baby in a Christmas Tree hat. She have all the characteristics that are most required to become one of Santa's little helpers. Friendliness, enthusiasm, and exceptional levels of Christmas spirit. She loves to play hide and seek among the Christmas decorations. And with this hat she truly a hard find.

This cold-weather pal is lovable in any season! This itsy-bitsy toy can be a great stocking stuffer for kids of all ages. If you use a hook size 3 she will be around 10 cm tall so you can use it on your key chain or as a bag accessory.

The pattern is completely beginner friendly since I used just the most common crochet stitches, like the single crochet stitch and the slip stitch.

Perfect for play time adventures all year around!


She is part of my Tiny Winter Friends Collection.
