Watch out for the naughty elf!


The Christmas issue of Simply Crochet (issue 77) is going to tick all your festive boxes and get you and your hooks in the mood for a wonderful season! But watch out for our cheeky elf by designer Erinna Lee (@littleaquagirl) hiding out in your cover kit, just waiting to be set free.

Once you’ve hooked up this little (15cm to be precise) cutie, he’ll be with you throughout your festivities, hiding behind the holly on the mantelpiece or even in the mince pie tin. We love his bendy, pipe cleaner legs!

Use this issue’s kit to make him, or for digital readers, simply follow the pattern with yarn and accessories from your own stash.
