Amigurumi elf test

posted in: Crocheting 10

Within an hour after making my request for testers, I already had a handful of very enthousiastic people who wanted to try my new elf pattern.


They crocheted very fast and I already received the first results after a few days.

The idea to make an elf was given to me by Sweethart T, one of my American testers. When she finished Santa Claus she asked me if I could make an elf.

To be honest, I didn’t know too many things about Christmas elfs so I had to google them. Wikipedia taught me that elfs are santa’s helpers, that they make toys, take care of the reindeer and do other tasks as well.

I could use an elf to do my household tasks, so I decided to make one. Instead of the traditional green color I used turquoise.

My testers did a great job and they sent me lovely photos of their results.

Wendy M, one of my first testers ever, made this cutie in red en blue.

Debi B and Debbie S made these very nice elfs in green en red


Katja H showed me that an elf can also be adorable in purple :


And last but not least: Sweethart T. She made this great couple. The female is a variation on the pattern she invented herself. Aren’t they cute? I think it’s great to see that people take my patterns a step further.


Do you have a favorite elf?

      Ja hé, ieder haakt op zijn manier en dat vind ik net leuk om te zien. Je ziet wel dat het van hetzelfde patroon komt en tegelijk zit er ook altijd een persoonlijk accentje van de haakster in.
