Crochet Pattern: Christmas Character Coasters

By Rachel Choi – 19 Comments

This set includes 5 different characters to crochet: elf, gingerbread man, reindeer, Santa Claus, and snowman. Each coaster is crocheted in the round and made up of small parts that are sewn together. Minor embroidery skills are required to embroider the eyes and mouths. These coasters are great for decorating the kids’ table during Christmas, but sure will put a simile on the adults too! This pattern was inspired by the previous Amigurumi Animal Coasters Crochet Pattern.

Medium Weight Yarn (small amount of each color)

    Hmmm, I tried one (gingerbread man), but with four rounds for the body he came out HUGE! ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyone else? I may stop at three rounds and see how that works out.

    Duh, thx!! ๐Ÿ™‚ No, I didn’t do a test … usually I crochet really tight so everything comes out smaller. Maybe I was just more relaxed and groovy than usual?! Ha! ๐Ÿ™‚
