Sharing is caring!

Mrs. Santa Claus is one of the ragdolls included in the Christmas collection of rag dolls. Mr. Santa Claus has so many helpers but how he can manage all the work at the North pole without the lovely Mrs. Claus, right?

Most of the time she is always behind the scene but the biggest supporter of Santa Claus. And for us she is the one who deserves most, to be in this collection. Let’s fill the home with a Christmas mood together.

Pattern notes and essential information

Joining all the pieces :
When you join two body panels, make sure that the right side of the front panel is facing you while you are crocheting with a single crochet stitch around. As you crochet along the outside, you will need to switch colors where appropriate.
Stuffing – Stuff the toy when you crochet along. When you go around the leg with sc, fill it.

The dolls are made of flat pieces that we will join with a single crochet stitch later. The dolls are made of 6 panels – 2 for body and 4 for hands.

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 an example with colors – insert your hook into the last stitch of Color A. Pull up a loop in Color A. Then yarn over in Color B to complete the stitch. Continue with Color 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 on the Right Side of the panel or piece of string, so you will never wonder which one is the correct side.
Incorporating different colors – You can use the fair isle crochet technique when changing colors or pulling them from the back without cutting the yarn. Be sure that you keep the yarn at the backside of the panel. When we make the head, we will need to work on different color stitches of some rows in the pattern. The whole design is made using a 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 ” – means that you should crochet the first 6 stitches with White color, the next 12 with Cream color, and the last 6 stitches with White color. When it says “ decW,” – it means you should decrease with white color yarn.

Do not forget – Make ch 1 and turn at the end of each row. For each doll, first, we will crochet both legs for each panel, and after that, we will join them and crochet the body and the face.

Now make the same at the other 2 sides. At the end you must have 5 shells for each of the both sides and 6 shells on the bottom part of the apron.

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 panels together.
1. First assembly hand pieces together 2 by 2. 2 pieces for each hand. Join them with sc st.
2. Sew the eyes on the 49th row leave 3 sts space between eyes.
3. Sew the nose in the middle between eyes but 1-row below.
4. Sew the hands to the back panel.
5. Assemble two body panels.

  1. Sew the ears on both sides on rows 44-46. Attach the apron on the belly of the body panel. Make the mouth using tapestry needle.
