I can't find where the original person ever put a tut or did she?
OR were you just a really smart crocheter and figured it out?
I'd still love to make one, but I'm just a newbie beginner and would need a pattern to even attempt this.
thanks! but i would hardly call myself a really smart crocheter. i'm mostly a knitter. but it was really easy to just make it up as i went along. i would try something, and if it didn't look right, rip back and try again. do you know how to crochet in the round? and change colors? he's really just a tube with no shaping until you get to the decreases for his pointy hat.
start like this:
chain 4, slip stitch to form a ring
round 1: 9 single crochets into the ring
round 2: 2 single crochets in each stitch (18 stitches)
once you have those 18 stitches, it's just a matter of changing colors for his clothes, beard, face, etc. and once you get to his hat, i did the decreases like this:
(starting with 18 stitches)
crochet 2 together, single crochet in the next stitch, repeat all the way around (12 stitches)
single crochet in each stitch (12 stitches)
crochet 2 together, single crochet in next stitch around (8 stitches)
single crochet in each stitch (8 stitches)
crochet 2 together all the way around (4 stitches)
cut your yarn and sew the remaining stitches closed in a point.
i hope that helps! let us know if you get stuck!
