Come December and Santa is the most popular guy in the whole world. He’s a Christmas staple and the holiday season would not be the same without him. This portly little guy’s personality is full of joy, good cheer, and holiday magic. He embodies kindness, giving, brotherly love, and the holiday spirit. Kids adore him and look forward to the gifts he brings every Christmas Eve. With such stellar attributes, it’s no wonder we celebrate St. Nick through jolly songs, movies, candy, toys, ornaments and festive home decor.
I’m big on creating my own gifts and holiday decor and Santa is on my nice list this year. As always, I turn to the experienced designers on Etsy for inspirational Christmas patterns, and they did not disappoint me. Depending on which story you grew up with, Santa can be a human or an elf. And there is a deluge of different versions of this jovial guy in pattern, porcelain and paintings. Below are some of my favorite Santa crochet patterns that can be incorporated into your holiday theme this year. All you need is some festive yarn and a hook!
This Amigurumi crochet pattern of Santa Claus was created by Anna from KnittedToyZoo on Etsy. He’s absolutely charming. With a stout body, bushy beard, endearing smile, cheerful red suit and hat, and toy sack, he is sure to put everyone in a festive mood. This pattern may look difficult with all the exquisite details, but it’s suitable for those with beginner crochet skills and who know basic crochet stitches.
Santa doesn’t go anywhere without his large toy sack. This pattern is the perfect complement to Santa; it matches his outfit and is embellished with holly greens and berries. Fill the sack with holiday surprises for friends and family. Display him on your mantle, hang him from your tree, put him on your window sill, or give him as a gift.

No home is ready for Christmas without some cheerful accessories! I love holiday-inspired pillows and afghans and Marina from PatternsCrochetStore created a pattern that captured my heart. The enchanting Christmas Pillow pattern features a chubby gnome holding a heart and sporting a buffalo plaid hat. I’m mad about buffalo plaid, so I was immediately drawn to this pattern.
This Christmas Pillow pattern comes with full-color, easy-to-follow written instructions along with several full-color charts. So you have the option of following the chart or written pattern. I personally find it faster to follow the chart. Once made, this handsome little gnome pillow cover can fit over any cushion to spruce up your home for the holidays.
