Crochet Santa Ornament - Free Pattern

3 years ago
This year, I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in a lovely ornament exchange hosted by Amy at One Artsy Mama. It was so exciting because I have never participated any kind of exchange before. I was even more excited when I got Amy, herself. I love her blog and admire her greatly so it was a true honor to make an ornament for her. Since I am a crocheter and so is Amy, I decided to make a crocheted ornament. Plus, I wouldn't be worried about it breaking or being damaged in transit. I came up with this crocheted Santa Claus ornament. I'm glad to say that Amy loved it and so did her adorable little man =) After sending it to her, I figured, why not share it with you all so you can make one as well. The pattern is an intermediate pattern. I hope you enjoy it and make one for your Christmas tree!
