Nutcracker Kit


Grab a hook and get cracking with the decorations! To make seasonal crafting easier, we’ve packaged up the pattern, safety eyes and all the yarn needed to make four delightful Amigurumi Nutcrackers in one handy kit.

The Nutcracker is an iconic figure, symbolising protection and good luck. Designed by Kate McCully and originally featured in Pretty Little Things 29, this popular pattern is crocheted using simple stitches. Crafters will have tremendous fun adding character when stitching on the details such as the moustache and boot laces. The final part of the pattern describes how to add his hair and beard before smartening him up with a scissor trim!
