Hello Kitty Santa Crochet

I have to thank Armina Ami-Nals for teaching me how to make Hello Kitty. This pattern is actually not her Santa pattern, but an adaptation of her Witch pattern. I have links to her patterns on the Hello Kitty page. You can find both links on the page and decide which you prefer. I love the dress of the witch and I have never worked with the fun fur so adapting the witch to Santa seemed an easier route for me.

I tried using double crochets for the dress and I liked the effect. I also started from the top of the arm, instead of the hand. This allowed me to add cuffs to the dress. If you follow my blog, you will know I am not a fan of sewing. I use safety eyes whenever I can instead of sewing eyes. Suncatchers introduced me to Hello Kitty noses. This is the first chance I have had to try the noses out and I prefer the way the safety nose works to the sewn noses I make.

The Santa Hat is comes from a doll pattern I have been working on. I worked the size to fit Hello Kitty's head. I bought a pom-pom maker, but have not had time to use it yet. Therefore, I am still using the packaged versions for my patterns. After my holiday crocheting is done, I plan to dive in to learning more about Loom Knitting so I can use all the looms I bought. Next year I may even have real pom-poms as well.
