Christmas ragdoll Mrs. Santa Claus crochet free pattern

Christmas ragdoll Mrs. Santa Claus crochet free pattern

 

Christmas is always special for children and for adults as well. Just 13 days left and if you are a last minute person like us and searching for unique gift for your friends, family or someone you love and want to make them happy this can be the best gift for them. It is not big, but the biggest happiness is in the small things right? The main character for all of us is Santa, and as I said Christmas without a Santa won’t have the real spirit of Christmas but if there is Mr. Santa there must definitely be Mrs. Santa as well. As my Mrs. Santa is preparing delicious cookies for Santa Claus you would like to make your own Granny Santa and here is the pattern. Enjoy and if you haven’t seen my Santa Claus pattern you can find it here.

For this pattern I used:
1. Dk weight yarn – I used Stylecraft Special DK and Paintbox Simply DK yarns in these colors : red – 1123 Claret ; beige – skin color – 1710 – stone ; white – 1001; black – 1002 ; very small amount of yellow to make the clips of belt.
2. Crochet hook size – 3,5mm – US crochet hook size – E
3. Safety eyes – 12mm – black or you can use different color depends on you
4. Poly fiber fill for stuffing
5. Tapestry needle
6. Scissors

Color Legend :

R – red – Claret

CR- skin color – Stone

W – white

The doll is made of flat pieces that we will join with single crochet stitch later. The Santa Claus doll is made of 6 panels – 2 for body and 4 for hands.

Tips and tricks of the pattern:

  1. Color changing – When you switch colors do it always before you finish your last st of the prev color yarn. Just change color before your last YO of prev st and YO with new color then pull through the hook with the new yarn . Here is example with colors – insert your hook into the last stitch of Colour A. Pull up a loop in Colour A. Then yarn over in Colour B to complete the stitch. Continue with Colour B until you need to switch again.

When you change color make sure that you are dropping the yarn in the back of your panel if you wish you can put a stitch marker of the Right side of the panel or piece of string so you will never wonder which one is the correct side.

  1. Incorporating different colors – You can use fair isle crochet technique when changing colors or you can just pull them from back without cutting yarn. Just be sure that you keep the yarn at the backside of panel. In the pattern when we make the head we will need to work different color stitches of some rows. The whole pattern is made using single crochet stitch so when we incorporate different colors the stitches will be indicated with the letter of the color . For example – “ 6W, 12CR , 6W ” – so it means that you should make first 6 stitches with White color, the next 12 with Cream , and last 6 with White color.When it says “ decW” – it means you should decrease with white color yarn .
  2. Do not forget – Make ch 1 and  turn at the end of each row.

Let”s get starting :

Front body panel :

Body and head panel. Front panel is worked from row 1 til row 78. Back panel is worked from row 1 till row 67 . Rows 68-78 are for the hat and we are making it only for the front panel as we need the head to be slouchy not straight pointing upwaRows .

Start with black color yarn .

Row 1: Ch 6, sc 5 ( 5 )

Row 2: inc, sc 3, inc ( 5 )

Row 3- 5: sc across ( 7 )

Switch to white color . Row 6-7 are worked in white.

Switch to red color yarn . row 9- 37 is worked in red color yarn.

Row 8: sc across ( 9 )

Tie off. Repeat the rows 1-11 but do not tie off. Now you will have two pieces that we will join together in next row as in the picture bellow:

In the next row we will join 2 legs of the front body panel .

Row 9: ch 4, sc 3 along rem chs, sc 9 along prev row of 1st leg, now continue on the 2nd leg and make sc 9 along the prev row ( 21 )

Switch to white color yarn

Row 6-7: sc across ( 4 sts )

Switch to red color yarn

Row 8-17: sc across ( 4 sts ) . Tie off.

White piece around eyes :

Start with magic ring and make 12 dc into it . do not pull the ring . First insert the safety eye and then pull to tied it around th eye and then join with sl.st in 1st st. I suggest you to use thicker yarn like sport weight or fingering for that piece so when you put the safety eye you will be sure that it won’t come out.

You can use white felt circle instead of crochet one.

Crochet white circle:

Rd 1: Start with magic ring and make 12 dc into the ring , join with sl.st in 1st st but before closing the magic ring insert the safety eye and close the ring around eye. Then insert it in the front panel. Insert the eyes in the 48th row leave 6sts space between eyes.

Apron : Start with white yarn

Row 1: ch 13, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 11 sts

Row 2: inc, sc 10, inc

Row 3-14: sc across ( 14 sts )

Take the apron right side facing you. Insert the hook in the 1st st of 2nd row and pull a loop,  * make 3hdc in the same st. then make sl.st in next st * rep till the end of the row ( you should have 6 shells ) After the last shell do not sl.st in next st make the sl.st in the last st of the row. Now make the same at the other side. You should start from bottom working upwards. Just begin from 1st st of last row, skip 1 and make the 1st shell in 3rd row ( 6 shells in total )

Decoration of apron :

Use tapestry needle and make leaves. I made little red circles and leaves around them.

Little circle – Start with agic ring and make 5 sc into it.

Ears ( Make 4 pieces) :

Start with magic ring and make 8 dc into it. Do not join. End. You should have semi- circle shape.Join ears 2 by 2 with sc st . When you assembly them, work the sc st only around the outside of round part do not join the flat side we will sew it directly to the body panel .

Earings-( red color yarn )  Start with agic ring and make 5 sc into it , join with sl.st to form a circle. Sew them on ears.

Assembling pieces together. It doesn’t matter where you will start assembling for .

It will be easier if you attach the small parts on the body and face first then join the 2 body panel together.

  1. First assembly hand pieces together 2 by 2. 2 pieces for each hand. Join the with sc st. Assemble ears and sew earings on them.
  2. Insert the eyes in the 48th row leave 6sts space between eyes.
  3. Sew the nose in the middle between eyes but 1 row bellow.
  4. Sew the hands to the back panel.
  5. Assemble two body panels.

Joining all the pieces :

When you join two body panels make sure that the right side of front panel is facing you while you are crocheting with single crochet stitch around .

As you crochet along the outside, you will need to switch colours where appropriate. When switching colours, insert your hook into the last stitch of Colour A. Pull up a loop in Colour A. Then yarn over in Colour B to complete the stitch. Continue with Colour B until you need to switch again.

Enjoy your day and happy crochet .
