Pretty Little Things 29 - Amigurumi Nutcracker

By Kate McCully

Pretty Little Things 29 - Amigurumi Nutcracker

Time to get cracking with the crochet Christmas decorations! Choose from over 100 colours of Scheepjes Catona to make the uniform for Kate McCully’s Amigurumi Nutcracker and set the theme for this year’s tree. This iconic figure, symbolising protection and good luck, is created using simple stitches and you’ll have tremendous fun adding character when you stitch on the details such as his moustache and boot laces. The final part of the pattern describes how to add his hair and beard using white Scheepjes Furry Tails yarn before smartening him up with a scissor trim!
