One of my coworkers commissioned me to make this doll for her sister-in-law who collects Christmas elf decorations. However, instead of paying me, I've asked her to give me yarn because I didn't make the pattern but edited the mini ami pattern available on the tuts board here.

Her tutu, scarf, and hat were made using vintage Red Heart Candy Cane yarn in Spearmint. She wanted the elf's entire outfit in that color until I showed her how it worked up. Then she realized it would look very busy.
The green is a vintage Caron Bright Green and the red is Red Heart Super Saver Cherry Red.
For the cuff on her boots and sweater, I made chains long enough to wrap around then sewed them on. For the boots' cuff I left tails on either end for the bows. Her hair ties are single chains tied on very tightly. Her hat and scarf were tacked on so that she wouldn't lose them once she's put in storage. Her eyes and mouth were hand embroidered.

Thanks Cheesy
I've had several people ask me for one. I told them I'd have to make my own small pattern first.
